Make a native token. Initially, the Client distributed tokens of the blockchain as rewards instead of having its token.

Make reward distribution automatic. Upon the introduction of the Client's token, there were no clear rules for determining returns, and the reward distribution was manually managed.

Make decentralized reward distributions. The rewards were distributed through a multisig managed by the team, leading to centralized decision-making.


Creating a viable token model for the DEX and transitioning decision-making to a DAO.

Introducing a well-designed tokenomics system to ensure the platform's long-term sustainability and success.

Make recommendations about future solutions, including the introduction of DAO.
