Empowering the Community with $GORA

Gora recognizes that a truly powerful blockchain ecosystem thrives on distributed control and community ownership. Therefore, we embark on Gora’s roadmap to decentralization, highlighting the crucial role of the $GORA token in this exciting journey.

Phase One: A Network Built on Consensus

Gora has taken a significant leap forward by implementing the first phase of its decentralization plan. This initial stage focuses on the network itself, achieving a remarkable milestone with over 116 nodes now actively participating in decentralized consensus. This signifies a critical step towards a more robust and secure network, free from centralized control.

The Power of the $GORA Token

With a strong foundation laid, Gora sets its sights on decentralizing the $GORA token — the lifeblood of the network. This token serves a dual purpose:

  • Securing the Network: $GORA incentivizes node operators to validate transactions and maintain network integrity. Fees generated from network activity are distributed amongst token holders who stake their $GORA.
  • Fueling the Ecosystem: $GORA acts as the fuel for various applications built on the Gora Network. Developers can leverage $GORA to pay for oracle services, smart contract execution, and other functionalities.

Decentralization: A Community-Driven Vision

Gora’s vision for token decentralization extends far beyond mere technical implementation. The core objective is to empower the community by:

  • Broadening Token Ownership: Gora aims to increase the number of unique wallets holding $GORA tokens, fostering a more diverse and inclusive ecosystem.
  • Expanding Circulating Supply: By strategically increasing the circulating supply of $GORA, the network becomes less susceptible to manipulation by any single entity.
  • Shifting Control to the Community: As decentralization progresses, the community will gain greater influence over the token’s direction and future development.

A Transparent and Responsible Token Distribution Strategy

Gora’s commitment to decentralization is reflected in its meticulously crafted token distribution strategy. Here’s a breakdown of the key allocation categories:

Locked Until DAO is Ready: A significant portion of tokens is locked until the establishment of a Decentralized Autonomous Organization (DAO). This DAO will ultimately govern the network and empower the community to make crucial decisions.

  • Ecosystem Rewards & Development: Allocations are designated to incentivize developers and early adopters who contribute to the growth of the Gora ecosystem.
  • 2–3% Marketing & Partnerships: Strategic investments are made to raise awareness and foster collaborations that benefit the entire community.

Locked until Q3 / 2024

  • Treasury & Team & Advisors: A responsible allocation is reserved for the Gora treasury and team, ensuring long-term network sustainability and responsible management.
  • OTC Fundraising Amounts

Currently unlocked and slated for distribution

  • Marketing & Partnerships: A portion of the tokens is currently unlocked and being used for marketing and partnership initiatives.
  • Seed Round: The 1% seed round distribution has been completed and these tokens are already in circulation.

Completed Distribution (Already Entered Circulating Supply)

  • Private Sale
  • Node Sale
  • $ROCI Conversions
  • Public Sale

Secure Mechanisms for Token Management

Transparency and accountability are crucial in Gora’s vision. The network utilizes secure mechanisms such as:

  • Escrow Smart Contracts: These contracts ensure the controlled release of tokens according to predetermined schedules.
  • Vestige Locked Vaults: Secure vaults further enhance transparency by locking token reserves until they are distributed.
  • Marked Team Wallet: A dedicated team wallet fosters trust by ensuring clear visibility into team token holdings.
  • Investors Release

The Road Ahead: A More Equitable and Decentralized Future

Gora’s journey towards decentralization represents a bold step towards a future where the community holds the reins. Through its innovative tokenomics model and commitment to transparency, Gora empowers its users to actively participate in shaping the network’s evolution. This paves the way for a more equitable and prosperous future for the entire blockchain ecosystem.
