The Governance token of Charged Particles protocol

$IONX Token Generation Event (TGE)

$IONX is the native governance token for the Charged Particles Protocol. Our TGE was on 31-May-2021.

Any changes to the Protocol will be proposed and voted on by $IONX token holders. These proposals can include things like adjusting contract configuration values to adjust the protocol deposit fee, implementing scaling solutions, adjusting 3rd party integration fees, registering, adjusting or disabling DeFi protocols as yield sources, whitelisting NFT platforms, and controlling future distribution of $IONX to protocol contributors.

The total token supply of $IONX will be 100,000,000. The supply will be broken down across community, investors, team, advisors, and foundation.

Upon complete distribution of all 100M tokens, an annual inflation rate of 2% will start (after 2 years), distributed directly to the Foundation / DAO Treasury.


Our Charged Particles Photon community has been massive supporters from the start, with some members active in our discord for well over a year now.

50% of the $IONX total supply is reserved for community members. Including:

Initially, 30% of the $IONX total supply is reserved for Liquidity Mining / Yield Farming. Adding value to the Charged Particles Ecosystem, broken down as:

  • 5% for staking $IONX: 48,077 $IONX each week, for 24 months

  • 5% for staking $IONX/ETH (Uniswap) Liquidity: 48,077 $IONX each week, for 24 months

1% of the total supply is allocated to the public listing during the IDO on Polkastarter.

A 3% Airdrop to early community supporters and adopters. This is more of an “Airdrip”, with 1% being unlocked immediately, and the remaining 2% airdripped to these users over the next 3 months linearly. We’ll announce more details on the Airdrop and how to claim when it’s live!

A THANK YOU to our amazing Photon Community. You guys rock.
