Your vote is needed again!

Today I would normally describe a coin, but following the post from our governance team, here today we are going to take a look at what this proposal entails, and what it COULD mean for the people holding LBI. And I'll be very clear ... this is not set in stone!

Many things happened in a short period

Because as this post shows, the issuing of new tokens is on the decline. Which can also be understood. Many things have happened in the short time that LBI has been around. Many factors that can have influenced people's decisions whether to buy LBI tokens, and which play a role in their decision WHERE to buy those new tokens. Because yes indeed, there is also a possibility to buy these tokens via the Hive-Engine or Leodex market. And because people want to jump headlong into other projects, it may just happen that you can find LBI cheaper there than with the official account of @lbi-token itself.

Thinking about a Hard Cap!

Everyone is entitled to deal with his/her LBI as they wish. But this of course has an influence on how many tokens we issue from the official account. And now that almost no new tokens are being issued by us, it is time to start thinking about a hard cap!

Maximum LBI that will circulate ever!

Although we cannot technically speak of a real hard cap here, because a real hard cap is really programmed into the blockchain and that also just really indicates the maximum number of tokens that can ever exist (think Bitcoin, 21 million or Yearn Finance, only 30,000). In the case of LBI it is different because our LBI has already been created in advance. Only in the case of our chosen Hard Cap does it just mean that the @lbi-token account will stop issuing new tokens, and that there will be no more LBI in circulation than there is now! The tokens that are still on our official account will be sent to @null and used there. People who still want to buy LBI will have to do this via the Hive-Engine or Leodex markets. Because that will of course continue to exist.

Always advantages and disadvantages

And everything where you can see advantages also has disadvantages. Although at the moment I would not like to speak of disadvantages. I don't see that many disadvantages now. Yes, it may be more difficult to buy LBI, but that's not really a disadvantage. Because something that is more difficult to get is also more appreciated, and that will hopefully also ensure that the token is more appreciated. You would expect this to be reflected in an increasing price, also on the Hive-Engine market. Of course, we know that LBI in LEO must be valued. And that has been going well since the beginning of LBI. But maintaining the value of the token in the Hive-Engine and Leodex market is a different story. A Hard Cap could work with that. Let's be honest. Not every day there are 10K LBI's on the market for a bargain price. And even though I point out to this now, it's not a worry at all because the real value of LBI has nothing to do with these markets in fact.

So let's take a look at the benefits of a Hard Cap.


  • The scarcity is going to kick in, because no new tokens are going to be issued.
  • The price is likely to go up for that reason.
  • It is clear to everyone how much LBI will ever circulate.
  • We can focus on growing the value without worrying about issuing new tokens.
  • The value of LBI MAYBE grows faster because no more new tokens will be created.

Now these are not certainties, I'm just thinking and assuming here, so don't pin me to this. Unfortunately I have not been given clairvoyance … if only it were true. LOL.

But no matter how I look at it, I really only see advantages in a possible Hard Cap from the LBI token.

I did my vote:)

Good boy 😄

I already voted. I think the hard cap is fine since I would be able to reach my goal before the max amount is printed.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Nice ... yes, you can still reach your goal, and even after a hard cap ... you'll still be able to 'shop' on the HE or Leodex markets.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

My vote is done and in fact it matters a little more now. I am sure many of the users will say "YES" on the Hard Cap.

(I just asked these questions in the Discord server, but I thought I should post here too.)

I have a few questions about the vote and what issuing new tokens actually means:

  1. When new tokens are now being issued, how is the LEO price they're issued for calculated?

  2. And what does this added supply mean for the value of both the fund itself and the price of current LBI tokens?

I already voted like a responsible little pleb :) and I see most people have voted yes

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Very responsible. My compliments ...

👍

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

I see it is an overwhelming majority so far. I also voted.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Nice that you voted. Yes, I see the majority too ... So I guess we're gonna have the hard cap

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Lol, that means it's time to go for more LBI as it's scarcity looms and the future value starts breeding in.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Thanks for the reminder, going to vote right now !

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Ah nice to see that this post reminded you, and thank you for using your vote!

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

I voted a big fat yes. A cap will make the price on the secondary markets a bit more stable and the scarcity should also help

Exactly that ... Nothing to add on this comment! Thanks for your comment!

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Yes!
I have used

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Great! Keep doing that whenever you can ...

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Thanks

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Thank you for covering this! I think it has been really helpful. I hope it makes things a bit clearer for everyone and I hope that they take the opportunity to use their vote in the way they feel is best for them and the project as a whole.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

You're welcome! I hope it was helpful, and I hope people will use their votes.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Me too!

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

I already voted as well. As I said there, I wouldn't mind seeing a "soft cap" at the 275k with another 25k-75k left in the pot to potentially sell later if we wanted to raise more capital. That said, I'm pretty sure we could just reissue a "new" coin with a different cap and basically "convert" everybody into that if we wanted to so....I voted yes as well.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

I've read your reaction, nice to see that you're thinking in the way you feel is best for yourself and the project as a whole. Thank you!

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Voted
We are lucky to be able to vote so let's vote !!!!

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

I like this project because the choices are made in a democratic way.
I think about it and then I go to vote thanks :)

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Nice time to join! And even if you hold just 1 LBI ... you still can go over and use your vote!

Hey @lbi-token, here is a little bit of BEER from @libertycrypto27 for you. Enjoy it!

Hmmm, this would be a hard nut to crack. Supporting a hard cap now would indeed help LBI to gain value big at this time but that certainly would make it impossible for new investors to buy in. However, it's all good and that for us.
