⚑ The Forge


Welcome to The Forge - the core inflation mechanism of Based.Farm. This is where BASED tokens are minted.

How It Works

  1. Staking: Users can stake their bSHARE in The Forge.
  2. Minting: When BASED's value rises above Ethereum, The Forge mints new tokens.
  3. Rewards: The newly minted BASED tokens are then distributed to stakers based on their bSHARE contribution.

Key Parameters:

  • Epoch Duration: 6 hours.
  • Deposits/Withdrawals: Depositing or withdrawing bSHARE into/from the Forge will lock bSHARE for 6 epochs and BASED rewards for 3 epochs.
  • Reward Claims: Claiming BASED rewards will lock staked bSHARE for 6 epochs, and the subsequent BASED rewards can only be claimed 3 epochs later.
  • Inflationary: The Forge will not mint any BASED while the TWAP < 1.0003.
