  • COURT token will be listed on Pancakeswap on the 13th of May under the COURT/BUSD pair

What is COURT?

COURT is the governance token of the OptionRoom ecosystem ultimately required for participating in protocol governance including forecast markets, resolution, protocol proposals, Oracle as a Service — OaaS, and future products in the OptionRoom ecosystem. Governance rewards will be paid out in ROOM tokens making the COURT token supply deflationary in nature.

COURT token metrics and listing details

  • COURT will be listed on PancakeSwap on the 13th of May 2:00 PM UTC
  • The listing price will be $200, initial total liquidity will be $200,000. Additional liquidity will be added based on redemption mechanics from HT and MATTER stakers. More about this below
  • Max supply: 40,000 COURT, maximum supply reached after 3 months (capped after 13 June)

After listening to the OptionRoom community feedback we decided to auction the COURT tokens for HT and MATTER stakers respectively. The community showed concerns that a large sum of the OptionRoom governance token is given away to other communities.

The earned COURT token for HT and MATTER stakers will be redeemable at $30 per COURT for MATTER stakers and at $100 per COURT for HT stakers.
