SZO Utility Tokenomics and Roles: A Review
The ShuttleOne ecosystem is tied together using the SZO utility token that secures the network for holders and liquidity providers besides regulating incentives.
There are 230 million SZO tokens compliant with the ERC-20 standard in Ethereum. ShuttleOne has also clarified that it won't be crowdfunding via a private sale or IDO.
Instead, emissions would be from protocol's activities. Tokens would either be acquired either as rewards or purchase from the second market. SZO has been tokenized in the Binance Smart Chain (BSC) as wSZO and Tezos, both are wSZO (wrapped version of SZO is tradable). At the same time, the wrapped version in the BSC is available for trading at PancakeSwap and Dodo Exchange.
ShuttleOne has set an annual inflation of five percent—additional tokens which will be added to circulation. Nonetheless, the protocol also has a scarcity-enhancing mechanism to prop demand and indirectly support prices.
The SZO token incentivizes liquidity provision. Holders who channel liquidity to ShuttleOne's liquidity pool using stablecoins--DAI, USDC, or USDT--will receive SZO as a reward whenever a loan is approved. Liquidity providers who seek to supply liquidity for longer will receive more SZO rewards. SZO holders who finance trade cargo and other businesses supported by the protocol are rewarded with extra coins.
The protocol also says SZO token holders have access to above-rate interest rates generated by real-world assets deposited as loan collaterals. Furthermore, since SZO is a utility token, it is used as a means of payment by merchants and all users leveraging the platform's rails via its banking, Fintech, accounting, or cross-trade partners.
Merchants who access ShuttleOne's products for services such as on-chain risk management or seek credit, for example, pay fees denominated in SZO. For every approved loan transaction in the ShuttleOne ecosystem, the platform says a token will be burned.
