The Altered State Machine economy is based on the $ASTO Token.
$ASTO governs activity within the ASM ecosystem.
The purpose of $ASTO is to decentralize the ownership of ASM via ElderDAO, Altered State Machine’s token governance mechanism. The token-holding community will create and guide the future of ASM.
In ASM applications, $ASTO can be used to mint or mine the NFTs that make up Agents. In other Worlds, many different fiat, native and cryptocurrencies can be used to create them.
$ASTO can be used to improve your Agent by training it’s ML model at a virtual gym. An economy of Gym owners will provide GPU cloud compute, and earn $ASTO in return.
The Ecosystem Development Fund supports applications, games and worlds that create great experiences using ASM Agents. The EDF is governed by the DAO.
