About $GLQ Token
GLQ is the native token for the GraphLinq ecosystem built on top of Ethereum (ERC20). It is used to run a graph on the platformâ€™s mainnet to execute different processes over the blockchain to automate tasks, triggering events, and much more. GLQ will be used as the payment method in GraphLinq Marketplace where templates will be bought and sold peer-to-peer. GLQâ€™s functionality & use cases will continue to diversify as the ecosystem grows, as mentioned in Graphlinqâ€™s Documentation.
All You Need To Know About $GLQ Staking
GraphLinq has finally announced the much-awaited GLQ staking launch on the GraphLinq App, incentivizing the holders of GLQ to earn passive rewards. Upon staking, GLQ holders can earn as much as 50% APY in rewards depending on the unique tier mechanism aimed at incentivizing long-term holders.
Initially, tier rankings are allotted in a decentralized nature as following:
-> First 15% stakers of total stakers will be in Tier 1 and get 50% APY
-> Next 40% stakers will be in Tier 2 and get 25% APY
-> The rest stakers will be in Tier 3 and enjoy a 12.5% APY
The current APY is for a limited period only and would be updated in the near future.
When you stake for the first time, youâ€™ll be in Tier 3 first and then make it onto the higher tiers by holding for longer durations, as the number of stakers increases you can end up in the first 15% or next 40% stakers, increasing your tier rank. Also, stakers/holders in the higher tiers could drop to subsequent lower tiers upon withdrawing their staked GLQ, ultimately rewarding the long-term holders.
To put it simply, the longer you hold, the more your rank is likely to get to the next tier with higher APY. At each withdrawal you will lose your tier advantages, benefitting the holders the most.
The first withdrawal decreases your APY by half (if youâ€™re not on tier 3), and the second will take you back to the last tier with the least APY. However, claiming yielded GLQ will not affect your tier ranks or rewards.
(You can track & claim your staking rewards on the GraphLinq Appâ€™s Staking Page in real-time)
Note: The team has mentioned that the current APY of the staking rewards is for a limited time only, and it will be updated from time to time in the near future.
