This is the article that looks back on what we planned to achieve in Q1 2024, how far we’ve come, and what are our plans. April marks the end of Q1 and the beginning of Q2. Here are the goals we set for Q1:

  1. Launch the $A51 token
  2. Carry out extensive research and finalize the VE tokenomics and its parameters
  3. Launch the A51 mainnet app
  4. Create a referral and rewards-boosting mechanism
  5. Develop partnerships

Launch the $A51 token

On 28 December 2023, we launched the $A51 token on Polygon and Quickswap DEX. The $PILOT token holders burned their $PILOT tokens to claim $A51 tokens.

With that, the $A51 staking and liquidity mining was also activated.

Carry out extensive research and finalize the VE tokenomics and its parameters

Q1 was about conducting thorough research on the $A51 tokenomics and finalizing a new incentive mechanism. To learn more about it, head over to: https://mirror.xyz/8thousander.eth/JrOqNwoxXLRP1jfgB2VoOYjIkwdrRNlvQBuyeE982jI

Launch the A51 mainnet app

The A51 mainnet beta app was launched on 16 March 2024. The plan was to launch on 3 chains, Arbitrum, Ethereum, and Polygon, simultaneously but due to an unfinished audit, we did a mainnet beta launch on Arbitrum only.

The launch was also accompanied by a Moon Rock Hunt. A rewards program where A51 users earn points/moon rocks by using the protocol and referring friends. It is based on several phases with points reducing per $ of liquidity with each phase. The Moon Rock Hunt ends with $A51 airdrop scheduled in Q3 2024. The points earned by users will be converted to $A51 tokens.

Create a referral and rewards-boosting mechanism

A referral program went live with the launch of the A51 mainnet app. Through this, the A51 users can generate referral links by using A51. Users share referral links with their friends and earn points when their friends use A51.

Moreover, users can boost their rewards by adding liquidity to A51/MATIC pools.

Develop partnerships

A51 Finance partnered with Arbitrum. An AMA session with Arbitrum is scheduled for the second week of April.
