Historical Emissions
With the launch of the Coordination Protocol, we are no longer emitting new ROOK. This page serves as an archive for previous emissions.

Initial Rook Distribution

The initial token supply is 1,000,000 ROOK. All ROOK tokens are fluid upon launch and should be counted as part of the circulating supply.

Emission Schedule

The emission of ROOK tokens gradually decreases by every quarter.
ROOK emission schedule
  • ROOK is emitted on a per-block basis.
  • The initial supply was 800,000 ROOK.
  • The first quarter emits 200,000 ROOK.
  • As a general rule, the total ROOK emitted during a quarter is 70% of the total ROOK emitted during the previous quarter. This percentage is known as the decay.
  • Governance can choose to alter the decay.

ROOK distribution

Distribution refers to where newly emitted ROOK is sent. Generally speaking, governance controls the precise distribution of ROOK amongst users. Below we outline prior distribution by Quarter (now referred to as Acts).

When the Rook Protocol (for coordinating MEV between Keepers) and governance are introduced, ROOK distributions will likely be adjusted via Governance. The end goal is to incentivize participation in Rook, and to disincentive holding ROOK but not participating in any of its MEV mechanisms.
