Invest early with the best VCs on equal terms

There is no pre-sale. The only outside funding we have received is from Gitcoin donors. We offer you the same deal that the best VCs get if you are willing to think long-term and take on the same longer vesting.

Everyone before (including farmers) and at this public sale is vested and is long-term aligned. Flippers have been kept out.

We believe that this is a viable model for the future of venture investing.

Sale Mechanics

The sale runs for 6 days, where the price is determined at the end based on total contribution. In other words, everyone gets the same price. No front-running.

You can allocate your contribution between two options. Option 1 is the main event and includes most of the supply. It has longer vesting with a steeper discount.

Because everyone is vested, there is limited selling pressure at the listing (late May).

On Day 1, Option 1 will earn a small early believer bonus (For every 1 ITGR purchased, receive 0.05 more ITGR).

Token Model & Metrics

All protocol values will accrue to ITGR holders. Owners of enough ITGR will be able to trade for free. This model economically captures all trading fees while incentivizing long-term holding. Owning ITGR is owning a piece of future crypto GDP.

Additionally, you will be able to stake ITGR for inflation yield and use ITGR as collateral in other protocols.

Token supply: 30,000 ITGR

  • 40% to farming programs with vesting (12% farmed by the time of listing)

  • 25% to founders and employees with 3-year vesting

  • 25% to public seed round with vesting

  • 5% to advisors and collaborators with 3-year vesting

  • 5% to supply listing pools over time

All vesting starts from listing in late May and then linearly distributed over time.

Project Overview

10,000x Vision: Building the Last Exchange

Our primary research question was: "What would be the final form of AMMs?" And the answer: "One that eats other exchanges' liquidity." We are molding Integral based on this final form, for it to become the last exchange. 

Whenever another exchange tries to beat us with better liquidity, we mirror their liquidity onto ourselves until we regain the world's best liquidity again. This process can be thought of as a continuous vampire attack until all world liquidity is integrated by us.

As we crush incumbents, we will start building out a competitive market clearing functionality that allows people to bid on providing market-making strategies. As we prepare for the end of world liquidity around us, we can then wean off the mirroring, and start to function independently as the last exchange.
