What does that mean?

The OTC sale uses a dynamic fundraising model, meaning whenever you enter your buy, the price is fixed at a 40% discount, with $0.15 being the minimum price after the discount.

  • Distribution tokens: OTC sale participants will receive an allocation of 40% esBFR and 60% BFR tokens. More details on the token distribution are mentioned below in the “Next Steps” section.

How to participate?

Step 1: Anyone can participate in the sale on a first-come-first-serve basis. To participate, head to the OTC sale page on Superlauncher (begins Dec. 16th) here:

Step 2: Review the terms & connect your wallet by clicking on the “Unlock Wallet” button or the “Connect Wallet” button at the top right-hand side.

Step 3: Enter the amount of USDC tokens you want to deposit (min amount: 100 USDC; max amount: 25,000 USDC). As mentioned previously, you will automatically receive a discount of 40% once you enter your buy, with $0.15 being the minimum price after the discount.

Before you deposit your tokens, the pool will need your permission to transfer the investment token from your wallet to the pool. Click on “Approve” to proceed.

Step 4: Once you’ve approved the transaction, you will successfully contribute to the OTC sale. Read the “Next steps” below to learn how you will receive your esBFR and BFR allocations.

Next Steps:

  1. OTC sale participants will receive 40% of their allocation in esBFR tokens immediately after the sale closes.
  2. The remaining 60% of the allocation in BFR tokens can be claimed after 6 months with linear vesting over a period of 360 days. In the meantime, users will receive Tradable certificates (SuperCerts), which act as token lockers with a derivative certificate that can be traded on the Superlauncher OTC Marketplace.

Example: For the sake of this example, let’s assume that Alice contributes 10,000 USDC in the OTC sale. Let’s also assume that the spot price of the BFR token is $0.312. After applying the 40% discount, the discounted price is $0.19. So at the end of the OTC sale, Alice receives approximately 52,631 tokens in total.

Out of this, (40% eBFR) i.e. ~ 21,052 esBFR tokens will be distributed to Alice immediately after the sale ends. 6 months after the sale, the remaining allocation. (60% BFR) i.e.

~ 31,578 BFR tokens will be distributed to Alice in tranches of (in this case) 86.5 BFR tokens per day for the following 365 days.
