1 Year Journey of the UFT Token

UniLend Finance has seen phenomenal growth in development and global outreach after the outset of the concept behind UniLend in 2020.

UniLend’s native token UFT (UniLend Finance Token) is the centre of UniLend’s Ecosystem. The functions of UFT will assist UniLend and its decentralized community in unlocking the true potential of decentralized finance.

One year ago, UniLend entered the market with a 300x oversubscribed public sale for our governance token $UFT. The public sale got over in a matter of 30 seconds and was a huge success. As a result, we receive a lot of traction from the community around the world.

So let’s deep dive into the vast pool of $UFT tokens.

Utility

UFT is the indigenous utility token of the UniLend platform designed to enable the decentralized governance of UniLend whilst incentivizing both platform users and liquidity providers, which enriches the continued growth of a robust participant ecosystem.

Governance

UFT token will be used to facilitate governance of the UniLend protocol. The HODLers of UFT will have the power to vote on several factors related to the proper functioning of the protocol, such as the collateralization ratio for specific assets, the addition of base pairs etc.

Liquidity mining/yield farming

The stakeholders and maintainers of the UniLend protocol liquidity providers will be rewarded for their services with UFT tokens, along with a percentage of trading and borrowing fees.

User participation incentives

Participants of the Ecosystem using UniLend for lending, borrowing, or trading will get rewards for participation with UFT tokens to encourage the platform’s services and facilitate distributed governance.

Supply

As a decentralized protocol governed by community governance, the wide Distribution of UFT is of utmost importance. Therefore, the UFT token distribution model and release schedule are designed for immediate, mid-term, and long-term value capture to grow a robust, vibrant, engaged ecosystem.

The initial circulating supply of $UFT was 10,800,000 (10.8% of the total supply), with an initial market cap of $1,620,000 based on the public sale price.
