Despite cryptocurrency adoption being on the march, there is a lot of work left in this field. Particularly, for real-world use-cases of crypto, i.e. solutions that allow the use of digital tokens as real instruments of exchange and stores of value. This review will cover how the Singapore-based product Lynchpin is attempting to address these challenges.

Lynchpin: the project and its token

Lynchpin Token was launched back in 2018. Its team is decentralized but its main operations are located in Singapore. The project strives to bring tokenization into real-world financial operations and, therefore, build all-in-one ecosystems for buyers, sellers, investors, traders and vendors.

Its LYN token is issued on the most secure dApp platform, Ethereum (ETH), and belongs to the ERC-20 standard, which is common for successful utility tokens.

Basics of LYN tokenomics

LYN token has well-designed tokenomic fundamentals oriented for the long-term interest of the token and supported by multiple catalysts.

  • Only 5M LYN tokens will be issued. 
  • 1M will be assigned to a team will be locked for 1 year 
  • 2M private sale will be locked for one year
  • 2M will be in circulation
  • No mining
  • No staking
  • No bounty program
  • No free airdrops

Lynchpin team has inked a partnership with for the unique Gold Assurance Program to guarantee the 2M that are sold during IEO will be assured with physical gold. Token holders can be sure that this is a reliable anti-dump mechanism as the the Gold Assurance Program is tied down to initial purchase amount. 

Lynchpin tokenomics design guarantees the supply/demand balance due to the opportunity of the affiliates and crypto-cashback operators to place the orders on purpose-made exchanges, and, therefore, ensure the high level of liquidity. 

Additionally, the arbitrage trading with LYN token is one more of its lucrative use-cases due to low supply and guaranteed liquidity.

Initial exchange offering

The Lynchpin (LYN) project will launch an initial exchange offering on popular Korean platform ChainX. The first stage of the IEO will start on July 6, 2020.
