Token Economics


Cyclone Protocol is fueled by the CYC token, which is designed to incentivize anonymity providers, liquidity providers, and users. CYC is NOT pre-mined or pre-allocated. Those that contribute to Cyclone will earn CYC.

  • Total Supply: 50,000, fixed

  • Circulating Supply: ~6,000 (see for the latest info)

  • CYC Mint

    • Genesis anonymity pools will be provisioned when launch on a blockchain

    • Opening of additional anonymity pools will have to go through community vote

    • Anonymity Mining: Coins/tokens are rewarded to ones who deposit coins/tokens into anonymity pools and keep them there for a while. There are two versions of anonymity mining that mint CYC in different ways.

    • Liquidity Mining: CYC is rewarded to users who provides liquidity for CYC on DEX (Decentralized Exchanges).

  • CYC Utility

    • Use Anonymity Pool: when one uses the anonymity pool to gain privacy, a certain portion of CYC will be burned.

    • Decentralized Governance: CYC holders are entitled to govern the Cyclone Protocol.
