Circulating Supply Curve

The above vesting schedules correspond to the following OAK circulating supply curve

Token Inflation

Inflation is subject to a fixed 5% inflation rate divided into 3 components:
1% is used for collator rewards
2.5% is used for staking rewards
1.5% is used for future parachain slots
This inflationary force will be constant throughout the duration of the network’s life apart from the first 2 months from OAK the Token Distribution Event. Additionally, it will be counterbalanced through burning of transaction fees which are expected to result in the token becoming slightly deflationary over time.
Due to OAK Network onboarding collators over the first 2 months after the Token Distribution Event, staking and collator rewards will not be granted. Therefore, inflation will not be activated for the first 2 months from OAK's the Token Distribution Event.
