Improving the market maker for CTPSB

When we started the project, we had created a market maker that would reproduce the value of the CTPSB token with buy and sell orders on the hive-engine market. To avoid that people speculate with the token, we set a spread of 2% for buy and 2% for sell orders around the value of the token. This means that there was always a spread of 4% between buy and sell prices.

With the token growing at a rate of 70% APR, people needed to keep the token for 20 days just to break even. This kind of discouraged people from investing into CTPSB.

CTPSB a token to invest in hive without needing to stake it!

We want to position the CTPSB token as a way to invest into hive without needing to stake our tokens. If there is a very long break even time, this advantage is kind of moot. Therefore we want to reduce the spread between buy and sell prices.

How we will proceed

Since the value of the token is growing constantly, we will keep the sell price at the same level and increase the buy price at the same speed that the token grows in value. We will do that until we reach a spread of a total of 1%. This will take some time.

What to expect?

You will be able to purchase the CTPSB tokens at a same price for the coming weeks. It will stay at around 1.948 Hive.

The token value will continue to grow at a rate close to 70% APR.

The price at which you will be able to sell the token, will grow faster so that there is always the same spread between buy and sell around the token value.

We will do this until the spread of 1% has been reached. Once this is the case, buy prices and sell prices will grow at the rate of the token value.

Why doing this?

By reducing the spread to 1% it will take people roughly 5-6 days until they break even after buying the token. This means that after that they will be able to profit from the nice APR of CTPSB. We hope that this will encourage more people to invest in the token. More investors means more voting power and more value for the CTP community.

Dividends paid

We have paid a new record amount of CTP tokens to the delegators of the project. With 2850 CTP tokens distributed, this was the highest amount ever. Again we have managed to distribute more than 9% APR to the delegators.

CTBSB is one of the best tokens on H-E! If I wasn't below my plan with my Hive/HBD targets, I'd probably buy some more tokens.

Thanks for the feed-back! I also think that it has a very solid structure and I hope that by reducing the spread on the market, people will buy it more willingly.

Do you predict anyone breaking through the walls on either the buy or the sell side? I know the SEED project did something different by using the diesel pools instead to increase liquidity.

The idea of the market maker is not really to limit the market to these walls. There were quite many breakthroughs and the objective is not to buy and sell all the tokens but to provide a certain liquidity for both sides. Also since the prices are adapted regularly it's thought to reproduce the token value that is backed with Hive power on the @ctpsb account.

Having a tight spread and nice liquidity on both sides should give more confidence to new investors... It will be easier to go IN and OUT from the token...
Good move!
