🪙Tokenomics and Emissions

The initial supply of $SKY is 100M.

Out of this, the initial circulating supply will be 28.16M ($1.88M), with the remaining amount locked or vested.

Note: Any unsold tokens from the IDO/Token Sale Allocation will be used for ongoing protocol development or future fundraising efforts

The token distribution will be structured as the following:

$SKY (Initial Circulating Supply)

  • 11.66M for the token sale unlocked immediately (11.66%)

  • 7M for POL — Protocol Owned Liquidity (i.e. for ETH/SKY pools) (7%)

  • 9M for the Development and Marketing Fund. The other half of the fund is linear vested.

  • 0.5M for the Ecosystem Rewards. The other part of the rewards are linear vested (0.5%)

$SKY (Locked Supply)

  • 9M for the Development and Marketing Fund (9%) with a 2-year linear vesting period

  • 6M for the Skydrome team (6%) 12-months cliff with a 4-year linear vesting period

  • 3M for the pre-mining (3%) with a 1 month lockup (Starting from one week after the end of the presale)

  • 4.5M for the Ecosystem Rewards. Those funds are linear vested of a time-frame of 2 years (4.5%)

$veSKY (Locked as veSKY NFTs)

Note: Locked for 2 years in $veSKY of various sizes.

  • 33.33M for the Ecosystem Fund and Initial Liquidity Incentives (33.33%) — For activities boosting the Skydrome Ecosytem for example for for partner protocols / communities or directing emissions to selected pools, etc.

  • 16M for the DAO Treasury (16%)


Skydrome utilizes two tokens for managing its utility and governance:

  • $SKY — ERC-20 utility token of the protocol

  • $veSKY — ERC-721 governance token in the form of an NFT (non-fungible token)

$SKY is used for rewarding liquidity providers through emissions.

$veSKY is used for governance. Any $SKY holder can vote-escrow their tokens and receive a $veSKY (also known as veNFT) in exchange. Additional tokens can be added to the $veSKY NFT at any time.

The lock period (also referred to as the vote-escrowed period, hence the ve prefix) can be up to 4 years, following the linear relationship shown below:

  • 100 $SKY locked for 4 years will become 100 $veSKY

  • 100 $SKY locked for 1 year will become 25 $veSKY

The longer the vesting time, the higher the voting power (voting weight) and rewards the $veSKY holder receives. Note: Any unsold tokens from the IDO/Token Sale Allocation will be used for ongoing protocol development or future fundraising efforts.

ve(3,3) Mechanics

Skydrome mechanics incorporate a blend of two DeFi concepts:

  • Vote-Escrow — first introduced by Curve to bolster incentives for long-term token holders

  • Staking/Rebasing/Bonding or (3,3) game theory — designed by Olympus DAO

Combined, the ve(3,3) mechanism rewards behaviors correlated with Skydrome’s success, such as liquidity provision and long-term token holding. Liquidity providers receive $SKY emissions, and $veSKY holders receive protocol fees, bribes, rebases, and governance power.


  • Weekly emissions start at 1M $SKY (1% of the initial supply) and decay at 1% per week (epoch).

  • $veSKY holders receive a rebase proportional to epoch LP emissions and the ratio of $veSKY to $SKY supply, thus reducing vote power dilution for $veSKY!

  • Rebase for $veSKY Holders: $veSKY holders get a rebase that's proportional to epoch LP emissions and the ratio of $veSKY to $SKY supply. This minimizes vote power dilution for $veSKY holders.

  • Rebase Calculation Formula:

  • Note: The supply of $veSKY doesn't impact the weekly LP emissions.

Projected Emission Schedule

Gauge Voting

Holders of $veSKY get to determine which liquidity pools are granted emissions during a specific epoch by casting votes on their favored liquidity pool gauges. $SKY emissions will be apportioned based on the total votes a liquidity pool secures. In reciprocation, voters are awarded 100% of the trading fees and incentives amassed through the liquidity pool they advocate for.


While Skydrome encourages permissionless liquidity pools, gauge formation is exclusive to whitelisted tokens. A segment of the partner integration process involves token whitelisting where necessary. Partners have the liberty to propose added tokens for whitelisting.
