What is $DUST?

$DUST is the utility token for the Galaxis ecosystem and platform. It is an ERC 777 token on the Ethereum blockchain. The ERC 777 token standard is very similar to an ERC 20 token - with extra functionality.

How is $DUST utilized?

$DUST tokens are used throughout the Galaxis ecosystem to reserve and pay for upcoming mints, return value to NFT holders, and exchange for NFTs via the Galaxis Vaults.

In the future, $DUST may be used in the Galaxis marketplaces to purchase NFTs and $DUST Proof other non-fungible tokens. Creators may also purchase upgrades and/or features for their community platform. Additional utilities are under development.

Overall $DUST distribution details.

Initially, 5 billion $DUST utility tokens were issued on Ethereum Mainnet. However, from February 2022, issuance and claiming moved to the (Layer 2) MATIC/Polygon network to reduce fees. The $DUST distribution is as follows:

Currently, the maximum total supply is 4,985,687,000 $DUST tokens. 14,313,000 $DUST tokens have been burned from initial $DUST drops during the NFT vault claiming process.

In September and October 2021, two batches of $DUST were dropped onto Ether Cards Founder NFTs on Ethereum Mainnet: 121,100 $DUST per OG, 12,110 per Alpha, and 1,211 per Founder tier NFT. The grand total was split evenly between all card tiers - with OG receiving 10,899,000, Alpha 10,899,000 and Founder 10,899,000.
