Multi-phase Token Burn — 20% of Total Supply

Starting March 16th, we are burning 20% of the total Velo token supply.

Advancing our project forward and moving Velo in the right direction is an important pillar of our mission. We are driven to do what is best for our investors, our community and our project, for both our long and short term goals.

That is why, starting March 16, 2022 (at approximately 15:00 UTC) the Velo Labs team will commence a token burn of 6 billion tokens — or 20% of the total supply — at a rate of 1 billion tokens per month.

Our CEO, Mike Kennedy on this announcement:

“Undertaking a burn of this magnitude shows our commitment to the Velo community and our investors, while also moving us closer to our broader company goals, including strengthening our tokenomics. We want to ensure we are providing the best possible opportunities for the backers and supporters of the Velo mission.”
