Dear PlutusSwap Community,

🔈 PlutusSwap Pools Update 🔈

To better incentivise $yPLT token holders, we will be removing other farms not related to yPLT LP. Thereafter, yPLT rewards generated through liquidity mining will be concentrated into 2 farms - yPLT/ETH & yPLT/USDT. Removal timing on 15th Oct TBA. Users on PlutusSwap who deposited other LP tokens will still be able to withdraw anytime after removal.

Revised Airdrop Campaign

Dear PlutusSwap community,

After a round of careful consideration, we've decided to revise the numbers from the announced airdrop campaign. We thank everyone (especially Mr ZeroSumGame on Telegram) for your constructive comments. Although the community suggested the team to reduce the top 300 wallets to top 50 wallets, we need to take fair distribution into consideration. To encourage overall growth, only the Top 100 wallets with min 5,000 yPLT will qualify for the 1,500 yPLT reward.

Revised details: 150,000 yPLT in DEV wallet will be distributed to the top 100 token holders (including existing token holders as shown on Etherscan *except UniSwap, PlutusSwap and Dev wallets). An equal amount of yPLT will be divided and distributed to the top 100 token holders. To qualify, each wallet must hold at least 5000 yPLT.

Snapshot will be taken at random timing from Wednesday to Sunday (14th Oct - 18th Oct, 22:00 GMT +8). Users must hold a min of 5,000 yPLT during this period starting from 14th Oct, Wed, in order to qualify. yPLT Rewards will be distributed the following week.

No submission of form or registration required on the user's end. Just need to have yPLT in wallet and user will receive the yPLT rewards the week after.

Each qualified users will receive 1500 yPLT as reward.

yPLT Airdrop — Top 300 Wallet

Dev will distribute the 5% yPLT generated from liquidity mining back to the community.

Dear PlutusSwap community,

As part of our initial effort to rebuild the community before PlutusSwap AMM system launch, we will be distributing yPLT tokens in DEV wallet to our existing and new token holders.

150,000 yPLT in DEV wallet will be distributed to the top 300 token holders (including existing token holders shown on Etherscan *except UniSwap, PlutusSwap and Dev wallets). An equal amount of yPLT will be divided and distributed to the top 300 token holders. To qualify, each wallet must hold at least 500 yPLT.

The snapshot will take place on Sunday, 18th OCT 23:59 (GMT +8). yPLT Rewards will be distributed the following week.

No submission of form or registration required on the user's end. Just need to have yPLT in wallet and user will receive the yPLT rewards the week after.

Each qualified users will receive 500 yPLT as reward.

Why did the team distribute back the yPLT generated from liquidity mining?

We understand that our community members will be concerned about the yPLT emission rate during genesis mining. 5% of the yPLT mined during the genesis stage means that the PlutusSwap Dev is currently one of the top few token holders of yPLT. To prevent future #FUD of Dev dumping yPLT, we decided to give back majority of the yPLT and further emphasise on equitable distribution during the initial stage. Development for PlutusSwap will still continue with funding from Plutus Capital’s existing resources.

What is the purpose of this airdrop campaign?

On top of distributing yPLT to existing token holders, our goal here is to encourage new community members into our ecosystem before AMM launch. Targeted 300 token holders is just a start and we don’t intend to stop there. You can continue to stake the LP tokens and receive yPLT in return. As for what can you do with yPLT in the future, please refer to this report.

Where can I buy yPLT to participate?

  • Marketing/PR Campaign & Airdrop

  • New Partnership

  • yPLT Utility

Dear PlutusSwap community,

Happy Sunday and what a week it has been for us and the community. On 7th October, yPLT is listed on UniSwap at 18:00 (GMT +8) and PlutusSwap is launched 4 hours later. Although everything went great during the launch, the idea of yPLT Devs holding pre-mined tokens caused FUD to spread on social channels. Despite the team burning ALL of the pre-mined yPLT two days later, the momentum within the community fell and yPLT token holders are concerned about the price of yPLT. We understand that our marketing plan and decision making has not proven effective over the past few days. It is definitely our very own responsibility to deliver all promised product and to create awareness for yPLT into the DeFi market. Although PlutusSwap is currently just a farm for users to earn yPLT incentives, this is not the final stage of PlutusSwap. As mentioned previously, the initial stage of PlutusSwap is to distribute yPLT to the early community before AMM launch, encouraging early engagement on PlutusSwap. yPLT genesis mining stage will end in upcoming days and 100yPLT/block will be reduced to 10yPLT/block during stage 1, stabilizing the emission rate to create a sustainable token ecosystem in the long run. Information on how yPLT can be utilised during the AMM launch will be explained in the latter part of this report.

Here are some of the new action plans and updates to our community-

1) Marketing/PR Campaign and yPLT distribution

As most of you are aware of, 95% of yPLT mined are distributed to users and 5% goes to the PlutusSwap Dev for future development. To incentivise our early community, as well as bringing in new community members, the team will be distributing back all yPLT mined during an upcoming airdrop campaign. Details will be announced early next week. We will also be pushing a couple of marketing/PR campaigns about yPLT before the AMM launch. yPLT might be down now but that will not stop the team's development or affect our commitment to build the promised product/ecosystem. We are not an experiment or testing the market. To our existing token holders, this is not the end of yPLT. This is just the beginning of something great to come. A huge shout out to our community for giving constructive feedback and messaging us to offer help. Our community managers have forwarded us your messages. Your love and support will not be let down. We understand that timing and marketing in DeFi are crucial. While working on development, we will also focus on marketing/community building. We are hiring marketing specialists as well as community managers! If you would like to partake on this journey with us, please send in your resume to [email protected]

2) Partnership with an upcoming farm

We have contacted a couple of projects regarding potential partnerships. As of today, we are pleased to announce that we have confirmed and finalised one partner to be integrated on PlutusSwap. As the project is still undergoing development for their upcoming DeFi protocol, detailed information will be disclosed once it is launched. However, that does not mean that we are partnering with a random and anonymous DeFi project that is new to the cryptocurrency industry. Our upcoming partner is an existing cryptocurrency project that has been around since 2018. They are an existing chat/e-commerce application that allows users to spend/buy/sell cryptocurrencies within the app and reward users who stake their tokens on their very own open-source wallet. Our partner has already launched their own mainnet this year and has successfully migrated from the Ethereum network to their proprietary blockchain. They boost a community of 100,000+ users and has various blockchain partners with their ecosystem. Their upcoming DeFi protocol will allow users to farm tokens and spend on their app. They will also be introducing "EMOJI" NFTs among other NFTs on their platform that allows users to trade and use, earn royalties from it. As per the partnership agreement, yPLT LPs will benefit from higher rewards/incentives on our partner's platform and we will be leverage on each other community. This partnership allows the Plutus Capital/PlutusSwap ecosystem to ride on a high volume industry such as chat/e-commerce applications. With a lending and chat application partnership in place, we are very much looking forward to every possible integration between these two different industries! Detailed partnership report will be announced in the upcoming weeks once our partner is really to launch. Of course, partnerships will not end here and we will be updating the community once another new partnership is confirmed!

3) What can yPLT be used for in the future?

PlutusSwap will eventually add an AMM system into the master contract. yPLT will be the governance token for PlutusSwap, allowing token holders to vote on proposals. We will also be integrating PlutusSwap into the existing Plutus Capital infrastructures. Instead of just farming for yPLT by staking UniSwap LP tokens, our users can swap for different ERC20 tokens and provide liquidity into different pools directly on PlutusSwap as well. As a liquidity provider on PlutusSwap, you will receive our very own LP tokens and earn trading fees for swaps that occurred on PlutusSwap. On top of that, users can earn extra incentives by staking these LP tokens and farm yPLT. As we have yet to finalise on the fee distribution allocation, we are open to hearing feedback from our community. Here are 3 possible options currently in our plan,

  1. 0.2% to LPs, 0.05% Buyback yPLT on PlutusSwap and Burn, 0.05% to yPLT holders.

  2. 0.25% to LPs, 0.05% BuyBack yPLT on PlutusSwap and Burn.

  3. 0.25% to LPs, 0.05% to yPLT holders.

Unlike other AMMs like SushiSwap, the plan to is add a deflationary element into yPLT once the AMM is launched. Trading fees follow the market standard of 0.30%.

Idea 1 is to add both deflationary element and incentives for yPLT token holders (think of it like dividend or profit-sharing of a traditional company). End goal: Mitigating the emission rate from yPLT liquidity mining while incentivising yPLT token holders directly by distributing a portion of the trading fees. However, LPs will receive 0.05% lesser share of trading fees in option 1.

For 2, although fees are not distributed to yPLT token holders directly, deflationary element exists. End goal: Reducing the supply of yPLT along the way while Liquidity Mining is happening. Users can still stake PlutusSwap LP tokens on PlutusSwap farm and receive yPLT in return, while the yPLT generated from LM will be countered (the impact will be based on trading volume) with tokens burnt from the yPLT buyback on PlutusSwap.

For 3, it’s pure incentives directed to LPs and yPLT token holders.

The final mechanism has yet to be confirmed and if you have any suggestions, do let us know. On-chain governance for PlutusSwap is not live yet but your voice is still extremely important! Community suggest and we will do our best to implement/#BUIDL. We will be updating our Github with the latest development of our upcoming AMM system. Once there's any new update, we will be sharing with the community. https://github.com/PlutusSwap/yplutus

We thank all of our community members for their support over the past week and we will continue to bring you the latest update and progress. We are not here just for a good time and we will not let you down.

With love, PlutusSwap team

"100% Burnt, No Time-Lock. No pre-mined reserves" An open letter to the community regarding this decision.

Dear PlutusSwap Community,

If you've read yesterday's update (below), we mentioned that we will be burning 4,920,420 yPLT and sending 4,920,420 yPLT to a Time-locked contract for 30 days. However, many of our community members on Telegram and Discord commented that we should be burning all 9,840,840 yPLT on the main wallet instead. We heard our community and after much consideration, the team came to a conclusion: To BURN ALL of the 9,840,840 yPLT in our main wallet.

As of today, 9th Oct 2020, the team does not hold any pre-mined yPLT. Initial yPLT contributed for liquidity (36,600 yPLT) are locked for 1 year on UniCrypt.

Proof of Burn: https://etherscan.io/address/0xd0ea86f14e35984cc51cc470079039d00582a935#tokentxns

Firstly, we would like to explain why a Time-lock contract was initiated in the first place. As mentioned in previous articles/documents, the proposed Time-locked yPLT was supposed to be a community-governed fund whereby yPLT token holders get to decide on how we should allocate these tokens for future development and marketing purposes. Although PlutusSwap is currently just a farm for equitable distribution of yPLT to the community, we will be releasing our own AMM system in the future. However, in order to catch up with AMM pioneers such as UniSwap, Balancer and SushiSwap, PlutusSwap intended to allocate a sum of yPLT whereby the early community gets to decide on how PlutusSwap should incentivise more users to come onboard our ecosystem. However, we understand the community's concern regarding projects holding reserves. The existing DeFi space is corrupted with projects trying to dump their tokens on investors and abandon the project. It is sad to see how terms like "rugpull, scams and pump & dump" are becoming a norm within the DeFi community. Although blockchain, in general, is supposed to be a trustless system, relationship between the community and project is still built on trust. Therefore, we decided to take the first step and commenced a 100% token burn instead of sending the pre-mined yPLT to a Time-lock. The truth is, regardless of time-lock or not, PlutusSwap is here to stay. Why would we want to risk all of our Plutus Capital clients since 2019 and the US$6m+ locked up on the Plutus lending app?

The main goal for PlutusSwap is to integrate an AMM system into the existing Plutus Capital lending app. The purpose of yPLT at its current stage is to promote equitable distribution to early adopters before AMM launch. It allows Plutus Capital to tap into a wider market as well. Recently, one of our community members asked a good question on Discord - "How will the mission of decentralized banking be executed by a company from a country with a track record for authoritarian centralization?"

One of the amazing characteristics of Blockchain is that no regulatory body can interfere. Censorship resistance is key. One such example is Plutus Capital's clientele from China. China's regulatory bodies are known to be anti-cryptocurrency. However, despite the deterrence from the Chinese government, most of Plutus Capital users are from China. This is also why most of the Plutus Capital documents and infrastructures are adapted to Chinese users. Now with PlutusSwap, our ultimate goal is to tap into the worldwide #DeFi community!

You will probably be wondering now, if the team burn all pre-mined tokens, how can PlutusSwap development continue?

This is when liquidity mining comes into place. If you refer to our mining details, you will see that 95% of yPLT mined are rewarded to users on PlutusSwap and 5% goes to the development team. The team will only have access to this 5%. In other words, the team has to ensure the continuous growth of PlutusSwap.

For those of you who are wondering if PlutusSwap can mint any yPLT even after burn, the answer is NO. We've transferred ownership to the master contract and NO ONE can mint any yPLT tokens. New tokens supplied into the market will purely come from Liquidity Mining ONLY, according to the mining schedule. Speaking about mining, less than 80 hours till 100yPLT/Block reducing to 10yPLT/Block. Which means there will be lesser yPLT generated on PlutusSwap. If you wish to accumulate more yPLT from farming, it is best to do so before Stage 1 begins.

Mining will be divided into 5 stages: yPLT is mined every Ethereum block (around ~ 20 seconds a block) Below is the schedule of mining=> Genesis Mining: 100 yPLT/block,total 50,000 blocks(~7 days) Stage 1:10 yPLT/block,total 5,000,000 blocks(~1.9 years) Stage 2:5 yPLT/block,total 5,000,000 blocks(~1.9 years) Stage 3:2.5 yPLT/block,total 5,000,000 blocks(~1.9 years) Stage 4:1.25 yPLT/block,total 5,000,000 blocks(~1.9 years)

Thank you everyone for your support and let's look forward to greater things ahead!

With Love, PlutusSwap Team

8th October 2020

Dear PlutusSwap community,

It came to our attention over the past 12 hours that many users asked about inflated yPLT token supply and the value of yPLT.

For those of you who read our documents, you will probably notice a couple of key pointers and we would like to highlight on them.

Firstly, the perpetual increase in total supply is due to liquidity mining. This is the source of the $yPLT generated on PlutusSwap farms.

The total amount of yPLT is 100,000,000, which will be released in about 8 years through mining. 95% of yPLT released by mining is distributed to users and 5% is reserved for the development team. yPLT LP holders will also receive x10 rewards for supporting the ecosystem.

Mining will be divided into 5 stages: yPLT is mined every ethereum block (around ~ 20 seconds a block) Below is the schedule of mining=> Genesis Mining: 100 yPLT/block,total 50,000 blocks(~7 days) Stage 1:10 yPLT/block,total 5,000,000 blocks(~1.9 years) Stage 2:5 yPLT/block,total 5,000,000 blocks(~1.9 years) Stage 3:2.5 yPLT/block,total 5,000,000 blocks(~1.9 years) Stage 4:1.25 yPLT/block,total 5,000,000 blocks(~1.9 years)

The second commonly asked question is, if supply keeps increasing, the price will drop due to supply exceeding demand.

As mentioned in our document, "The goal of yPLT at its genesis mining stage is to achieve equitable distribution to the community before launching the updated smart contract with an improved AMM design." The existing function of PlutusSwap now is a "farm". However, we are working on an AMM system that can be implemented on the Plutus Capital existing lending app (as mentioned before launch). Which means, other than voting rights within the ecosystem, yPLT token holders will receive fee reward for swaps. Detailed tokenomics and structure will be released upon confirmation. Just so you know that PlutusSwap is not staying as a farm all the way. There's no point for us and the community to just maintain a farm and borrow liquidity from UniSwap forever. Farming is just the beginning for our early adopters to hold yPLT. We needed to borrow liquidity from UniSwap to ensure early distribution of yPLT.

Thirdly, if we are becoming an AMM in the future, why is governance/voting not included in existing smart contract yet. The TLDR answer is - Because too many existing projects' development was delayed at the voting stage, hindering deployment date. We need to ensure the health of our ecosystem at the initial stage, and there will be changes to the smart contract that require immediate attention and implementation. Such example is the burning of tokens and the concern of emission rate raised by our community members. We are currently working on how we can implement changes to ensure a healthy token supply.

The next question will be, WHEN will implementation of governance and integration with Plutus Capital be done? We are projecting a 30-day window (Hence the initiated 30 days Time-Lock contract) where we monitor yPLT emission and also community adoption. DO note that technical development is always ongoing. This does not just include PlutusSwap development but also the Plutus Cap Lending app. If yPLT ecosystem achieves stability even earlier, we will move much earlier.

Meanwhile, there are a couple of prioritised objectives from PlutusSwap developers today, on top of ongoing development.

- Burn half of the existing 9,840,840 yPLT and send the remaining half to Time-lock contract once it is done! Code is in progress.

  • Burn: 4,920,420 yPLT

  • Send to TL Contract: 4,920,420 yPLT

- Figure out and solve the issue of why yPLT/USDT APY is not reflected on site.

- Include direct links to yPLT UniSwap pairs on our site.

The team has submitted listing applications to CoinGecko as requested by the community, along with Defipluse, Defirate and Defiprime. The team thank everyone for your comments, feedback and support over the past few days (or hours). We will continue to bring you the latest update and progress. Do let us know if you have any other feedback and we will look into it!

With love,

PlutusSwap Team.
