ISK Token Overview

The ISK Token is an asset that has voting rights and allows the holder to participate in determining the direction of the platform through governance staking. The token economy and business model of the Iskra platform is to maintain and increase the value of the ISK Token.

$ISK is Iskra’s native token. The ISK token is the key currency used for all Iskra platform services (Bridge, Dex, Marketplace, Stable Swap, Launchpad, Wallet), in Iskra’s blockchain game publishing ecosystem and it will be used as the ‘base’ currency for the transaction fees on Iskra’s blockchain mainnet, the Hub-chain. 

$ISK can be obtained through the Pioneer NFT, bought on the exchanges(CEX, DEX etc.) or earned as a reward for participating in the community. $ISK is used for all the platform services provided within the Iskra ecosystem, such as paying for service fees transaction fees, or charging for a variety of other Iskra features in the future. And if you want to buy Iskra’s Pioneer NFT after the first 10,000 are sold, $ISK will be the only currency used for purchase. 

ISK tokens also provide governance influence, meaning you have the right to propose and vote on initiatives and policies that affect the entire Iskra community. For example, game studios that stake $ISK can submit proposals to lower the royalties or service fees they have to pay to the platform. Other community members staking $ISK can submit proposals to change the distribution of CPs based on platform contribution. Even the Iskra Team is required to stake $ISK in order to secure governance power of the platform!

Aside from gaining governance power, staking $ISK also means you’ll get rewarded with even more $ISK from the Governance Staking Reward and Community Rewards Pool. You can get rewarded with 20% of total ISK supply and  earn CPs (contribution points) for staking $ISK, which increases your community rank. A higher community rank means a bigger slice of the pie being shared from the Community Rewards Pool where up to 100% of platform fees after token burn* is going to be reserved. * 20% of all the revenue from platform fees will be used to burn the ISK token
