Thoughts on Tokenomics

by SafeMoon Spidey

"Let's talk about Tokenomics. Let me preface with the fact that I don't think that SafeMoon will EVER decide to ditch Tokenomics, just to make life easier... However, I am not not a DEV, nor the CEO of the company, and I cannot see the future, unfortunately. So,...🧵

There is ALWAYS the possibility that tokenomics is the major issues that is creating so many delays. Like many projects that have already ditched Tokenomics will tell you, it is a large barrier.

Would I still support SafeMoon if they changed or completely dropped their Tokenomics?


But, I would definitely be disappointed.

To me, Tokenomics is one of the foundations of SafeMoon and one of the reasons that I LOVED SafeMoon so much. I liked the idea of compounding interest and not having to worry about "timing the market".

To expand on Tokenomics, we were introduced to the concept of Global Tokenomics or GloToks, where ALL volume from both DEX and CEX would provide reflections to our ever-growing bag. THEN they shocked me even more with the concept of Cryptonomics, that they wanted to introduce on the SafeMoon Exchange and would be unique to SafeMoon.

I know that SafeMoon is a Technology Company and that crypto is just part of it's foundation, but I feel like Tokenomics, GloToks, and Cryptonomics are part of the crypto's foundation and that proving successful in and bringing these concepts to the forefront of the ALL of Crypto would be a legacy that would be hard to match.

And, that is not even accounting for ALL the other products that they are working on, innovating, and building in their ecosystem. Would I be disappointed in the loss of tokenomics, VERY. BUT, I have already packed my bag and I know that SafeMoon is going to do what is best for the company and I stand with it.

Let me reiterate, I DO NOT believe that SafeMoon will take the easy way out. I believe that they are striving, not for the road less traveled but to create a new road, where they make the rules:

- Security

- Accessibility

- Quality

Just thinking out loud. Cheers."
