About EVAI

Evai is a decentralised autonomous organisation (DAO) Presenting a world-class decentralised rating system for crypto, DeFi and NFT-based assets that can be used by anyone to evaluate these new asset classes.

Through a combination of peer-reviewed financial research and economic modelling, Evai provides decentralised and impartial ratings based on a multi-factor AI & ML model that removes the need for human intervention.

The EVAI token is an Ethereum-based ERC-20 standard token built upon a turing complete smart contract. By conforming to the ERC20 token standard, EVAI is compatible with existing Ethereum infrastructure, such as wallets and exchanges.

The Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM) allows the deployment and execution of smart contracts, enabling complex issuance rules for cryptoassets like EVAI.

Evai will build upon this and encourage community engagement through a distributed token-based governance system, allowing EVAI holders to vote and reach consensus on platform upgrades, security protocols and decide which cryptoasset instruments are added next to the ratings platform.

Staking Policy

To address potential volatility issues and to satisfy the criteria of certain tier 1 & tier 2 exchanges, Evai has formulated a staking mechanism, mandating both founders and early investors to hold tokens beyond exchange listing until a fixed future date.

This provides additional certainty to all early EVAI adopters in terms of price protection and provides a fixed date when tokens will be able (available) to trade, buy, sell, or swap via an exchange.

Investors Staking

All EVAI tokens purchased from day 1 of the project until our initial exchange listing will be staked—with wallets being locked from 1st December 2020 until 1st June 2021. A Staking reward amounting to 10% of EVAI holdings will be added to all investors’ wallets at the end of the Staking period on 1st June 2021.

From June 1st onwards, early investors will be able to sell a maximum of 10% EVAI per month over a 10 month period, equating to 100% of their token holding.

Founders Staking

All founders’ token holdings and wallets will be locked from 1st December 2020. Founders will not be eligible for any staking reward on founder allocations other than those acquired via additional investment, which will be treated under the 'Investors Staking' procedure.

Additionally, founders’ exchange sales will be further restricted for five years from December 1st, 2020. Founders will only be allowed to sell up to 10% of their holding from the end of each six-month period from the commencement of staking. In this way, the founders will be strongly incentivised to work for the benefit of Evai to provide ongoing price stability and growth.

The Evai founders unanimously decided that investor staking was an essential mechanism to promote price stability and ensure the future prosperity of the Evai ratings project. It was also unanimously agreed that all founders must submit to an even more rigorous staking regime than that of investors to ensure continued dedication to the Evai business for years to come.

The Founder’s token allocations are required to be released monthly at a rate of 1.67% over a 60 month period (5 Years). This approach alleviates sell pressure in the open market post IEO for all investors new and old.
