Genome Mining, Production Cycles and Mining Cycles [WIP]

At 11:01am 17/06/2022 NZST, the Genome Mining event commenced with its first cycle: Production Cycle 01. This cycle will finish on or about 11:01am 15/08/2022 NZST, and will lead onto Mining Cycle 01. There will be at minimum three Genome Mining events, and Altered State Machine reserves the right to instantiate additional Genome Mining events by DAO vote until the required supply of new ASM Brains is met.


During Genome Mining Production Cycles, holders of ASTO tokens and ASTO-USDC UniSwap LP tokens may commit their assets to the Production Cycle smart contracts to generate ASTO-Energy. LBA participants will automatically have their ASTO Auction LP tokens committed to the ASTO-Energy generation smart contract upon commencement of Genome Mining, and may withdraw at any time.


At or about 11:01am 15/08/2022 after the closure of Production Cycle 01, the Mining Cycle will commence. This cycle will finish on or about 11:01am 14/10/2022, and will mark the end of the first Genome Mining event. During Mining Cycles, participants which have accrued ASTO-Energy will be able to spend it to mine and mint new ASM Brains into the ASM protocol. The next Production Cycle will also commence at this date and run concurrently with the Mining Cycle.


ASTO-Energy is not a currency or token which is tradeable, viable or holds any value outside of the ASM protocol and ecosystem. It is a proof-of-participation which accumulates value in these discrete protocol events. ASTO-Energy generation may be boosted through multipliers and streaking multipliers when staking the respective token assets eligible for these boosts.
