In the last two years, over a million people globally have joined our FCC mobile mining campaign. Your passion has fostered social media groups, spawned promotional materials, and even sparked offline meetups. Your “To The Moon” cheers for FCC are inspiring. We, the team, are profoundly grateful for the community’s unwavering support and thrilled to unveil the next chapter in our tokenomics journey.

The Evolution of FCC as an Anchor Token

FCC, the essential gas token of FuturesChain, is now set to morph into a currency-like token — a shift signaled by its new logo. This transformation is driven by two pivotal developments:

1. Multi-Application and Game Integration: Our ecosystem is expanding to include a variety of applications and games, all choosing FCC for transactions. Our partners seek a settlement token with stable pricing — akin to how Coca-Cola wouldn’t let customers purchase drinks with its stock. Stability is key in our ecosystem.

2. Preparation for Pi Network Integration: Given the Pi Network’s uncertain trajectory, we’re gearing up for its launch. A key aspect of this preparation is establishing a pegging mechanism for FCC, especially if it’s to be exchangeable with Pi coin.

We’re now centralizing FCC’s liquidity within the FuturesCash wallet, allowing its price to oscillate within a controlled range, akin to a USDT-pegged token (but not on a 1:1 ratio). This strategy will adapt in response to the actual performance of Pi coin and the growth of the FuturesChain ecosystem.

Reaffirming the Economic Characteristics of FCT

FCT has journeyed through its 1.0 phase, where staking FCT yielded more FCT, rewarding early adopters. The 2.0 phase introduced the Futures Card, allowing FCT stakes to earn USD for online spending. Now, as we transition into the 3.0 era, staking FCT will earn FCC, in line with FCC’s new trajectory.

As FuturesCash’s Governance Token, FCT holders gain Premium status, enjoying various perks like fee reductions. More thrillingly, Premium users now reap additional interest in FCC staking programs. This interplay between FCT services and the FCC ecosystem heralds a new synergy. Remember, FCT, with its fixed issuance, remains a deflationary token available solely on secondary markets.

Potential Earning Opportunities: The Flywheel Effect

Envision a matured Futures ecosystem bustling with FCC-demanding applications — essential tools for the Web3 user. Here lies an efficient route to accruing FCC: stake FCT to become a Premium user, then stake FCC for substantial, stable-value returns. Investing in FCT propels its value. Since FCT staking interests are calculated in FCC, a surge in FCT’s price means heftier FCC payouts.

This scenario sets off a flywheel effect. As FCT’s value climbs, so does the FCC return on staking, drawing more investors to FCT. This increased demand further boosts FCT’s value, spiraling into a self-reinforcing cycle of growth and prosperity for both tokens. It’s a virtuous circle where strategic investment fosters escalating returns, embodying the very essence of the flywheel effect in our ecosystem.

As we navigate these exciting changes in FCC and FCT, we’re not just evolving; we’re paving the way for a new era of growth and opportunity within the Futures ecosystem. The synergy between FCC and FCT, bolstered by the flywheel effect, opens up unique investment possibilities for our community.

To the moon, indeed!
