75% Liquidity Providers & Staking: To reward our fellow Duelists for staking their funds and adding liquidity into the Duel Network Ecosystem, 75 percent of the supply will be distributed as incentives via the Duel Gaming Pools (yield farming pools) and the xDuel stakings.
5% Marketing & Community Endowment: In order to ensure Duel can get to as many people as possible, this allocation will be used for creating competitions such as our recent NFT Artwork Competition and other creative ideas that will drive community engagement, social media exposure, and help support content creators within the Duel Network Community. This allocation will allow us to organically grow the project, compensate designers, and community managers.
5% Team Allocation: Given Duel's mission is to continue pushing out excellent code and features for the coming decade, we will use this allocation to onboard new developers, designers, and marketers into the team and make sure everyone can be a full-time Duelist. This is distributed by the MasterDuelists rather than being minted beforehand, meaning there is no preallocation.
15% DuelDAO Treasury: This allocation of the total supply will be held by the DuelDAO which will be free to use the funds for whatever the Duel Network Community sees fit in the future. They may be burnt, distributed, or used for creative proposals that our community will be able to vote on in the future. Given the project is in its early stages and the DuelDAO isn't yet live, the funds will not be allocated yet to not make the circulating supply of DUEL appear larger than it really is
