We believe supporting innovation starts with understanding it. As the breadth of invention and adoption of blockchain continues only to accelerate, our team took the opportunity to speak with some of the foremost and leading investors to provide a fresh take on a topic that has intrigued and frustrated the industry in turn: tokenomics.

Tokens create a paradigm shift in terms of how utility could be measured, how value could be accrued, and even how the utility of the system could be dynamically valued and represented. And good token economics makes all the difference.

— Jehan Chu, Cofounder and Managing Director of Kenetic Capital

Token launches have matured tremendously since its somewhat bumpy start in 2017/18, and along with it the necessary discussion of evolving best practices and standards. In this report, we gather practical and validated insights from investors the likes of Defiance Capital, Fenbushi Capital, Hashkey Capital, IOSG, Kenetic Capital, NGC Ventures, and Pantera Capital to build on and cover the major themes below:

  • The case for tokens and recent uptick in optimism

  • Value Creation
  • Value Capture
  • Value Protection
  • Managing Demand and Supply Sustainable Growth
