PAID Network

PAID Network and its Ignition platform focus on decentralized business operations, smart agreements, and crowdfunding initiatives using technology. It strives to improve transaction transparency and efficiency while supporting innovative projects in the ecosystem. [1]


Established in 2021, Ignition is PAID Network’s decentralized crowdfunding platform. It is known for launching numerous and projects with significant returns, and PAID Network aims to support highly vetted projects and founders by providing crowd-sourced funding. Recognizing the need for improvements in transparency, security, and efficiency within the launchpad and crowdfunding sectors, they propose the Public Beneficiary Offering (PBO) model. [1][9]

The PBO model enhances transparency by ensuring all stakeholders have access to relevant information about projects and their funding processes. It addresses security concerns by using technology to provide immutable records of transactions and smart contracts to automate processes and reduce fraud risks. Additionally, it improves efficiency by streamlining the crowdfunding process, reducing approval times and transaction costs, and making it more accessible. PAID Network believes the PBO model and technology will bring significant innovation to the launchpad and crowdfunding industries, benefiting project creators and investors. [1][9]

Circular Economy

The $PAID team supports project fundraising activities through their Circular Economy. Participants do not need to hold $PAID tokens to participate; instead, they pay a percentage-based service fee on their investment amount. $PAID token holders with significant holdings have priority access through the EarlyPool, allowing early participation in both the EarlyPool and OpenPool. At the same time, other participants join the OpenPool on a first-come-first-serve basis. [5][9]
The participation fees collected are allocated to four activities aimed at decreasing $PAID’s circulating supply, enhancing token utility, and providing value to token holders: [5][9]

  1. Token Burn: This involves $PAID buybacks to reduce the circulating supply and potentially improve price action.
  2. Liquidity Provisioning: Ensuring deep allows for higher trade volumes with less , creating a more favorable trading environment.
  3. Community Growth & Marketing: Building a marketing treasury to support business development and community-building efforts, which may increase demand for $PAID.
  4. $PAID Community Fund: This fund is funded by a 2% transaction tax on and unstaking. It invests in early-stage projects. The rewards are converted to $PAID tokens and provided as incentives to .

These measures aim to support project fundraising while enhancing the value and utility of $PAID tokens. [5][9]

Platform-related interactions, such as and unstaking, will incur a 2% fee to fill the PAID Community Fund. These transaction fees aim to enhance the platform's sustainability. [5][9]

Real Yield APY

With the shift to a new model, $PAID will adopt Real Yield , moving away from the previous linear approach. This transition is driven by two primary factors: [5][9]

  1. Blockchain’s Shift to Sustainable Economic Models: The industry, characterized by rapid innovation, continually presents new ideas and strategies. Companies benefit from evaluating and adopting these new approaches. Real Yield Strategies and , already successfully implemented by several protocols (e.g., , SNX, ), offer a sustainable alternative to the unsustainable token emissions of older strategies.
  2. Sustainability for $PAID: The high (15% to 60%) from previous linear emissions was unsustainable due to significant token emissions. Shifting to a more sustainable based on token revenue aims to increase the longevity of $PAID.

The transition reflects PAID Network's commitment to providing real value to users, moving away from unsustainable practices and high reliance. [5][9]

Participation fuel generated from crowdfunding activities will be used for $PAID buybacks, with half of the collected fuel used to purchase tokens on the open market.

Protocol revenue will primarily reward $PAID through Real Yield and returns from the $PAID Community Fund, promoting a sustainable token economy. [4]

Additionally, token holders who stake $PAID on Ignition will be eligible for from partner projects launching on the platform. These , allocated as a percentage of the project's supply, will be distributed proportionally to staked $PAID holders, further incentivizing long-term engagement and participation. [4]

$PAID Community Fund

The $PAID Community Fund is a pivotal component of the $PAID ecosystem, offering a novel approach to community collaboration.

Initially overseen by internal team members, the ultimate aim is to transition operational control to a composed of $PAID token . [6]

Key features of the $PAID Community Fund include proposals and voting mechanisms open to all , with greater voting power tied to higher token . This structure empowers the community to propose and decide on project investments, focusing on early-stage ventures that traditional launchpads often overlook.
