Scallop Protocol presents their main governance and utility token, SCA. This article will outline $SCA’s token distribution, emission schedules, utilities and more.

What is SCA Token

SCA is Scallop’s core utility token which will be used as the medium of exchange between participants on Scallop in a decentralized manner.

SCA will be distributed as incentives to users to encourage active participation and contribution to the ecosystem.

Core utility of SCA allows holders to stake and receive Vote-escrowed SCA, also known as veSCA.

What is veSCA?

By utilizing veSCA, SCA holders gain access to a myriad of features that increase the token’s utility.

veSCA also serves as an additional tool for reducing the supply of SCA tokens, thereby increasing the token’s stability and the overall liveliness of the protocol. In this way, veSCA serves as an important backbone for ensuring sustainability and success of the Scallop ecosystem.

Getting veSCA

User can simply lock their SCA and receive veSCA.

The amount of veSCA that users receive is proportional to the SCA and duration locked. User’s veSCA amount will decay over time. It will reach zero once the lock duration is over. User’s locked SCA will then be fully released.

Users can increase their veSCA value by choosing to extend staking duration and/or increase their staked amount.

Locking principal

  • The unlock date occurs everyday at 12 AM UTC. Therefore, users need to select this unlock date.
  • One round lasts for one day (24 hours).
  • Users need to lock at least one full round. So for example, if they start at 12 PM UTC, they can’t unlock it on the next 12 AM UTC (12 hours later) because it’s not a full round yet. In this case, users need to lock it for more than one day to achieve at least one full round.
  • The minimum round is 1 and the maximum round is 1460. Maximum round is equal to 4 years.

veSCA utility

  • Users who hold their veSCA tokens can join pools that offer incentives
  • The amount of boost a user receives depends on the percentage share of veSCA they hold. The more liquidity a user has, the more veSCA they need.

Revenue Sharing (Q2 2024):

  • Holder of veSCA can get revenue sharing. The protocol will allocate some revenue to the holder of veSCA as a reward.

Governance (Q3 2024)

  • Scallop’s Governance, also known as veSCA, will help enable a higher degree of decentralization
