TRUF Token: Powering Permissionless Access to Financial Data

Published 04 Apr, 2024

Along with overwhelming support in our quest to further democratize finance, we’ve also had a lot of questions regarding the TRUF token. Truflation has answers.

In this comprehensive overview, we delve deeper into the TRUF token and its role and purpose in the Truflation ecosystem.

What is the TRUF Token and what will it be used for?

The TRUF token serves as the economic layer for Truflation’s product and ecosystem, including the Truflation Stream Network (TSN), which is a protocol designed to integrate real-time economic data into decentralized finance applications.

TRUF is an ERC20 compatible (Ethereum blockchain) token.

The 3 main utility functions for TRUF are:

1) Data Provider Node Operation

For Data Providers to join the network they will need to stake TRUF tokens in the Governance Portal. This ensures commitment and alignment with the protocol. 

These staked TRUF tokens will also allow Data Providers to participate in the governance of the overall protocol, to authenticate and adjudicate protocol direction.

2) Data Provision and Data Consumption

Users of Truflation will pay TRUF tokens to access data on the network. These rewards will also be used to further reward data providers and contributors across the network. 

3) Governance

TRUF token holders can participate in the Truflation governance by staking and locking their tokens for designated periods of time. As a result of this staking and locking mechanism, users receive Vote-Escrow TRUF tokens (veTRUF). veTRUF tokens grant holders voting rights in various protocol decision-making proposals.

Total token vesting stretches over 96 months (8 years), aiming to secure the protocol's long-term sustainability. At launch, there will be 9.4% (94,000,000) of total supply circulating. 

Along with our aim of data decentralization, TRUF’s ecosystem pools will be managed and led by the governance token holders. By empowering governance, token holders oversee the ecosystem pools, ensuring direction and allocation of resources are guided by the collective wisdom and interests of the community while promoting transparency, fairness, and resilience within the ecosystem.

We will continue to release more information around governance proposals and forthcoming programs designed to expand the data network. 

We’re thrilled to be bringing TRUF and TSN to our loyal community. Do you want to join the data revolution? Follow us on our socials to keep up with the latest developments:
