Utility

The Utility of the Quartz Token will come from Transactions and Staking

Payment for Transactions

The number of transactions will be proportional to the complexity of applications, and will be paid towards the treasury. In general:

  1. NFT Transactions: Pre-defined fee per NFT transaction (e.g. 0.1 QTZ).
  2. Smart Contract Transactions: Depending on the complexity of the dApps, each smart contract transaction will be charged at a pre-defined rate (e.g. 0.2 QTZ).

Staking

Staking on Quartz tokens will be available for several purposes:

  1. App Promotion Staking
  2. Smart Contract Endowment
  3. Reputation Staking
  4. Vote Staking (Governance)
