Token Creation

Since blockchain projects are based on sophisticated technologies and come with proprietary financial models, a whitepaper is essential because it explains all these subtleties clearly. It describes how a project works and explains the tokenomics model.

What is tokenomics? This is a mechanism that defines how a certain token is functioning and how all related processes are organized. This is what describes the coin’s qualities making it appealing for investors. Also, tokenomics defines such factors as the total number of coins, fees, allocation policy, and so on.

In a tokenomics whitepaper, potential investors and users can find such aspects as:

Token Model. It can be deflationary or inflationary. In the second case, the maximum supply of a token can be increased. The first one is used for Bitcoin, which is limited to 21 mln coins.

Token Distribution. Tokens can be pre-mined or released during the launch. In the best tokenomics, readers can find how tokens are mined, earned, owned, and governed by the community.

Token Supply. Each project defines the total amount of tokens from the start. In tokenomics, circulating, total, and maximum supply can be defined.

Technical Subtleties of the project. In this section, developers describe how things work in their platform, define the protocols used in the blockchain, and which problems their project addresses.

In later versions of tokenomics, crypto market cap and renewed distribution mechanics can also be mentioned. It gives investors an idea of the project's perspectives and future profits they can make.

Cryptocurrency tokenomics justifies the economic point of a token. The demand for it will define its liquidity, cost, and popularity. That’s why this document should present a platform and its token in a favorable light.

Pre-Sale

Pre-sales are beneficial for investors and developers alike, especially if the project does well and sees quick adoption. Crypto pre-sales act as crowdfunding vehicles; they provide developers with the necessary funds to see the project through. For investors, it is an opportunity to enter a cryptocurrency before it hits the market and appreciates.

Pre-sales also help developers spread the word about their projects and garner more attention from a marketing perspective. The event plays a crucial role in luring investors when the ICO goes live.

Pre-sales have been around since 2009, when Bitcoin, the world’s first and oldest cryptocurrency, was launched. It was a golden egg for investors who entered back then and held on to their currency for over a decade. Most of them have made it to the millionaires’ list.

Listing

Knights understand that issuers need to raise capital through the Crypto market and that can be an ongoing process as the project is built out.

Offering Crypto/NFTs to the Crypto market enables the issuer to raise more capital than they would as a privately. From the investor's perspective, the opportunity to buy early with the potential to grow into a larger, more profitable Crypto/NFTs.

At Knights we can onboard and manage, restricted offerings, leak-out provisions, secondary offerings and more.

The mechanics are simple

  • The issuer creates an account and deposits the digital asset.
  • The Issuer sets the rules, 20% - 30% is retained for buy backs and the balance of the sales are used for funding.
  • Monthly report on what has been sold and Crypto/NFTs progress is given to holders.
  • Knights grade the progress month to month on an A+++ to an F

This is a clear and transparent process that removes a lot of the FUD, accusations of Rugpulls, questions about marketing wallet sales or insider sales are all removed.

There are no magic slippage costs, no excessive fees, this is a straightforward easy to understand process that gives issuers and investors the best chance of being successful.

Knights aims to provide more access to crypto/NFTs and make the best efforts to list ALL digital assets, but we prioritize high-quality digital assets, we also divide the listings in to Categories, Knights Compliant and Non-Reporting.

What are the benefits of crypto market making?

Markets that have low liquidity will generally have wide bid-ask spreads in their order books that can increase the volatility of the asset. Therefore it makes it more difficult for traders to get a good price for their trade and have their orders filled. The overall liquidity of a market greatly influences its growth, and market makers play a big role in ensuring liquidity. Simply stated, the liquidity of an asset is its availability for buyers and sellers to easily trade it at any given time.
