BFR Token Supply​​

All mints have been done and the supply is officially capped at 50 Million BFR Minting beyond this max supply must be voted on and approved by BFR governance before it would be permitted.

Buy Back and burn​

See BIP-02 for details on buyback and burn. We see the ultimate pathway to a community win is through a revenue-based "buy and burn" strategy. There are two key levers we control:

  • Expand Demand
  • Reduce Supply

These levers behave differently when a product is early and there is a small number of users vs. when the product is mature and a large number of users exist.

    • 20 million BFR reserved to be distributed as esBFR. Out of 20 million:
