🔬 Article: $FLOW token economy
The $FLOW tokenomics were discussed during the last Flow office hours. Here is a summary of the discussion.
$FLOW token governance
Every $FLOW token holder can now participate in governing the Flow Blockchain through FLIPs (FLOW Improvement Process)
FLIP is a process where all the major changes to the Flow Blockchain can be published, discussed by the community at an application, protocol or governance level change
Find FLIPS here: https://forum.onflow.org/c/governance/
Staking rewards are how the Flow network pays trusted node operators for security
A governance proposal (the first FLIP-GOV) was submitted by the Flow Foundation to keep rewards at 5% as due to the current economy downturn, it is not desirable to reduce the rewards rate
No plans to burn the Flow token ($FLOW)
The team also stated that there will be sessions to brainstorm ideas for the extra use cases of $FLOW and that there were no plans to burn the token but if the community felt strongly about this, then this is the kind of topic that could go through a governance FLIP
DeFi on Flow
The team stated that DeFi on Flow will not resemble to what has been done in the past, it will be built to address real needs and good yields will be supported by real demand

Flow Liquidity Vaults (FLVs)
When dApps launch a token, they want it to be listed on DEXs e.g. Blocto Swap, IncrementFi
This requires them to provide:
Their own token
A counter asset that is ideally already liquid on the DEX e.g. $FLOW
However, dApps don’t have large amounts of $FLOW in their wallet and it is not an option for dApps to lend their tokens and borrow $FLOW on IncrementFi because their token isn't trading yet
Here comes in FLVs, where dApps can bring their own token and lenders can deposit $FLOW in this liquidity vault, which spins up a DEX made up of the dApp’s token e.g. $TKN and $FLOW
Lender of $FLOW benefits:
Receive interest (paid in $TKN)
Gain exposure to any new token launching on Flow passively
High yield opportunities but comes with risks
Properties of FLVs
Limited in time: The longer the borrowing of $FLOW, the higher the APY
Limited in size: dApps don’t need large amounts of $FLOW to spin up a liquidity pool (usually $0.5-1m worth of $FLOW is enough to have good slippage)
Lender and dApp share the impermanent loss
Summary of FLVs
Cement $FLOW as the defacto counter asset on DEXs, taking the $FLOW token away from the circulating supply as more tokens launch on Flow
dApps on FLOW can now source $FLOW to spin up liquidity pools in a systematic and transparent way
$FLOW holders gain exposure to new fungible tokens launched on Flow + become a lender and gain a yield (with risks)
FLVs are close to testnet and an independent team from Vietnam is building it and the MVP will be shipped in late July
