$KALAM: Tokenomics and Distribution

Introduction to Kalamint

Kalamint is the first community-owned public NFT marketplace on Tezos.

The platform will let users create/mint NFTs native to Tezos using the FA2 token standard. It will also enable buying and selling NFTs.

‘Kala’ represents art in almost all of the languages native to the Indian subcontinent. Kalamint aims to represent art, freshness and colour!

Cost Benefit: Creating, selling and collecting at a fraction of the cost compared to marketplaces on Ethereum.

Ease of Use: You focus on creation, we focus on making the process of creation seamless for you.

The Kalamint Guild: To make Kalamint the best NFT platform, users should be part of the decision-making process and allow the people that understand this ecosystem best to lead the way. This is how the concept of The Guild was born.

KALA Rewards: Every action on the platform earns the users $KALAM tokens that can be staked to get a percentage of the platform fees, used as payment on the platform or for governance.

Fast Curated Onboarding: Kalamint has developed a unique governance system in which a group of artists and collectors — ‘The Guild’ can onboard and verify new artists quickly.

No-Dump Airdrops: The $KALAM governance token will be distributed to artists and collectors of the platform on a weekly basis. To incentivise the holding of the coins, holders who stake their coins will be able to make proposals to ‘The Guild’ and also receive a percentage of the fees of every sale.

Zero Plagiarism Policy: We value the work that any artist does dearly and will not permit any form of copyright infringement in the platform and across platforms by employing a NFT Registry.
