$TIC is the native governance token for ElasticSwap. It has no hard cap to its supply, ownership rights to the underlying DAO vault, or guaranteed value of any kind. The ElasticSwap team is a big fan of the fair launch approach taken by Alchemix with their $ALCX token. In designing the launch and release schedule, we've taken heavy influence from their team. We believe that the majority of the tokens should go to people who contribute to the protocol, specifically, the team who builds it, former ElasticDAO members who have chosen to support ElasticSwap, and liquidity providers who seed the markets.
