Komodo Community Vote on AUR Reduction

In March, Komodo will hold a community-wide vote to determine whether or not to implement a proposed change to the KMD active user reward.

The main objective of this proposed change is to upgrade KMD tokenomics by making the supply issuance more deflationary.

Voting Participation Details

Option 1 (Yes) — Reduce the active user reward amount to 0.01% APR in order to decrease the KMD total supply over time.

Option 2 (No) — Keep the active user reward amount at 5.1% APR.

On March 3, 2023, there was a snapshot of the KMD blockchain. Users who hold KMD in a non-custodial wallet like AtomicDEX either have received a special token called KIP0001 that can only be used specifically for voting. The amount of KIP0001 users receive is 1:1 based on how much KMD is held in your wallet. Note that if you hold KMD in custodial wallets (i.e. Binance exchange or other CEXs), you will not receive KIP0001, and CEXs aren’t allowed to participate in the voting process.

On March 6, 2023, we completed the KIP0001 token airdrop.

The poll ends at the first block notarized (inclusive) after March 31, 23:59:59 UTC.

The following wallets support/ will support KIP0001 tokens:

AtomicDEX Web
AtomicDEX Desktop — (Update: v0.5.7.1 with KIP0001 support released March 7)
AtomicDEX Mobile — (Update: v0.6.2 with KIP0001 support released March 10)
Verus Desktop

***Note: If you're using Verus Desktop or Komodo Ocean QT, you'll need to follow additional instructions to import KIP0001 tokens.
