Issuance

Project revenue of 55 million Link (equivalent to 5 years of mining) is pre-allocated into a smart contract that will release it over 2000 days at a rate that decreases every 200 days. Compare this to Ethereum which launched with a 6.5 year pre-mine.

The purpose of the revenue is to provide funds for re-investment into the Link ecosystem and to provide profit for the developer.
