BIFI token serves multiple functions on BiFi's multichain DeFi platform. It can be used as a governance token, used to vote on proposals to enhance or submit proposals for BiFi. It can also be used as a currency to pay for multichain DeFi services on BiFi.
Of the total supply of BiFi tokens, 15% is allocated to teams. 15% is allocated to the treasury. 20% is allocated for each following: Staking and Pooling. 40% is allocated to rewards for lending service. Total of 1 billion BiFi is going to be distributed in 4 years; however, the distribution schedule is subject to change due to the governance system. When all BiFi tokens are distributed, 1 billion, then 2% of the total BiFi tokens will be created and distributed every year.
Bifrost was founded in 2016 by two professors to develop blockchain applications to solve social issues and business problems. In the process, they saw the potential and limitations of blockchain technologies. There were many protocols, all with their own strengths and weaknesses, and no way to combine them. So they created Bifrost, a technology platform that allows developers to easily build on multiple blockchains that truly enables multichain technologies.
In 2019, the Bifrost team decided to create BiFi, the multichain DeFi project, to demonstrate the full potential of Bifrost. The DeFi ecosystem, much like the DApp ecosystem, is limited to Ethereum and hampered by soaring gas fees. With multichain, BiFi will solve these issues, lowering gas fees, increasing accessibility, and expanding the ecosystem. Leveraging our team's expertise in finance and cybersecurity, the Bifrost team will continue to introduce new investment products that leverage the new multichain DeFi ecosystem.
