Ecosystem

Project overview

The CANI ecosystem empowers users by serving as the Swiss army knife for content creators worldwide, creating a direct-to-consumer environment. Whether you are a creator or a consumer, CANI simplifies the process of storing and maintaining value by eliminating unnecessary third parties.

At the heart of the ecosystem lies the Cani token. This token allows creators to protect, store, licence, broadcast, distribute and easily monetise their content. The Cani Community governs this ecosystem by moderating content, aiding board decisions, rewarding distributions, and administering votes on future development.

The CANI token will be launched via the SNS (Service Nervous System) where control will be handed over to the DAO.

All tokens are subject to a locked and vesting period, that will be distributed linearly over a timeline based on the round you participated in. 

Cliff-linear vesting is a vesting schedule programmed into a smart contract – neuron. Tokens will be locked for X-period of time, and once that time has elapsed the tokens will be distributed equally over Y-period of months.

Schedule Release = (Month of Cliff from Genesis, vesting period in months) SR = (X,Y)
