BSCDaily.com hosts Astronaut: a hybrid auto yield-decentralized protocol for auction pools built on Binance Smart Chain
Dr. NAUT: Hello hello! thank you for having us here today
BSCdaily – Admin: Thanks for coming @talrothschild, it’s our pleasure to have you here today
BSCdaily – Admin: Are you ready? @talrothschild
Dr. NAUT: yessir as usual
BSCdaily – Admin: That’s the spirit, let’s get this started!!!
Q1: My first question for you, what is Astronaut.to all about? Give us a little summary
Dr. NAUT: Awesome, so Astronaut is a protocol built to decentralize the way projects and ideas coming to the BSC ecosystem raise capital. We have a tiered IDO launchpad where holders of the NAUT token can get whitelisted into new IDO projects. Our token is also deflationary with a 3% burn and 1% redistribution to holders which helps the value go up over time and for long term holders the ability to go up in tier levels for higher IDO allocations.This also helps control the whales that will participate in our platform releases
Q2: Could you tell us a little bit about yourself and your team? What are your past experiences?
Dr. NAUT: So my name is Dr. NAUT or Toby, I started my career after achieving my MBA in UF Warrington. I started off within the banking system in the USA I was a UHNW banker and went from there to investment banking. I then took the consulting route and was a consultant with Deloitte one of the big four advisory and accounting firms in their digital banking unit. This is where i became involved with crypto and blockchain, i learned a lot from my colleagues at Deloitte who are leaders in the blockchain space. Now i am the CMO of Astronaut! getting ready to moon.
We have some awesome team members, and we also like to include our admins as part of our team since they are the front line. People don’t realize that the work admins do compares to the devs or even greater, our team consists of me as the CMO, Shazeb Khan as our Co founder and back end Dev he was an Ex AAVE dev who worked with them during their seed stage in skelia. Andrew Matthew is our project manager and UI guy / design, Absher is our designer and front end. We also have Adam, Austin, Astro, JWK, Bilbo, and Alexandros as our epic admin team they run our social media platforms and are the biggest marketing push a team can ask for. They host contests and are also administrators of discord, reddit, medium, tg, and twitter. Those guys are awesome.
BSCdaily – Admin: UHNW banker, Deloitte’s consultant, CMO of Astronaut,…
BSCdaily – Admin: You certainly wore multiple hats in the past. That’s impressive
Dr. NAUT: thank you!
Q3: So why did you and your team decide to build Astronaut.to?
Dr. NAUT: We built out Astronaut to better the BSC ecosystem. The current way IDO’s are launched is very unfair and dominant by the whales fees are also off the charts leaving projects with only 50% of the raise. We came into the picture to become a leader in the launchpad space and allow new projects to merge communities with us and receive the exposure they deserve and need to develop into something big. We have some very interesting IDO programs that no other platforms offer which you can learn more about on our medium posts and website
Q4: Let’s dive into $NAUT token. Can you share with us your tokenomics?
Dr. NAUT: Of course, So our allocation is as follows.
Private Sale – 23% Liquidity Fund – 45% Marketing / Community – 15% Team / Advisors – 11% Foundational Reserve – 7%
Our token burns as we have mentioned and is deflationary, we released with 10M tokens and currently sitting on about 8.8M tokens. Most of the burn came from our liquidity fund and marketing fund. They burn on any contract interaction including when we top of pools, do large transfers to CEX’s or DEX’s ect. We have a 3% burn and a 1% distribution to all wallet holders allowing your NAUT holdings to go up over time and price to follow that trend.
Q5: Great, what are some of $NAUT use cases? What can we do with the token?
Dr. NAUT: This is the most important factor, the use case of NAUT tokens are meant for tiering into the IDO’s. Tiered launchpad works by allowing the highest tier individuals to pool higher pool weights. In other terms, the higher tier you are the more you can stake into the new project launch. The way the allocation is determined is by a pool weight and the higher your pool weight the higher amount of allocation you can receive.
We have also recently released news of NFT’s which will have a use case as a NFT to be able to get into a tier, so you dont even have to hold NAUT tokens if you own one of these extremely limited NFT’s
Q6: For people who are interested in $NAUT, how can we obtain or buy $NAUT token?
Dr. NAUT: To buy NAUT is very simple, you need BUSD or BNB, go to one of the supported AMM platforms such as Pancakeswap, Apeswap.finance or Cafeswap, simply either plug in our contract : 0x05B339B0A346bF01f851ddE47a5d485c34FE220c or just swap it for NAUT which currently shows up under the list of ape swaps platform. You can also buy NAUT on CEX’s such as Bitmart, Hotbit, or Coinsbit.
Q7: Nice, what can we expect in the next 3 months and in 2021 as a whole?
Dr. NAUT: The next 3 months is like 20 years in crypto. In the next three months you can expect surging and booming growth. We will have launched many projects by then and our platform will probably be known amongst the top in BSC. Our roadmap is to finish development of our dApp (coming in 2 weeks) Having staking and a locker to lock up liquidity available on our platform. Making a bridge between blockchains so we can launch projects form DOT and ETH. We will also integrate a swap to make it easy to exchange tokens during IDO’s and have multiple language support such as Korean, Chinese, French and Russian. Finally we will open a crowdsourcing platform for any projects that are not directly launched by Astronaut. Stay tuned!
BSCdaily – Admin: We will
Q8: Where can we find out more about Astronaut.to?
