QLC Chain is conducting QGas buyback and burn program in Q-Wallet OTC


Since QLC Chain mainnet went live in mid 2019, QGas distribution via mining and staking has accrued among the community. To provide an alternative to QGas trading for the QLC Chain supportive community and QGas hodlers, the QLC Chain team decided to conduct the QGas buyback and burn program to give back to the QGas stakeholders, mining and voting node runners.

QGas buyback program will be conducted in the Q-Wallet OTC. All the Q-Wallet users are allowed to trade QGas for QLC by filling the QGas buy orders placed by the QLC Chain team. Through the program, the QGas hodlers and Q-Wallet users are expected to sell a total of 200,000 QGas for 900,000 QLC. All QGas bought back will then be burnt and removed from the QLC Chain for good.

To fund the program, QLC foundation provides 900,000 QLC for QGas purchase which is about to be introduced to the QLC circulating supply. In the meanwhile, the QLC team will burn an equivalent amount of QLC from the QLC foundation allocation to that released to the community through the buyback and burn program. We do this for the long term decrease in supply volume of QLC token.

How the QGas buyback and burn program works

Program implementation and rules

Program time: 7:00 pm, 13/03 to 9:00 am 23/03 (UTC+8)

  • During one campaign day, the volume of QGas bought back is 20K. Each time there will be several QGas buy orders splitting the 4000 QGas placed, the QGas buyback amount may vary in each order
  • All the Q-Wallet users with no less than 1 QGas balance in their Q-Wallet are eligible to trade their QGas for QLC
