5% of the supply is reserved for the initial airdrop & staking rewards for veVLVT holders to bootstrap initial decentralization and incentivize stakeholders to lock their tokens.

25% of the supply is reserved for an ecosystem fund, which will be used to support and incentivize developers, partners, and projects that contribute to the Velvet DAO ecosystem. This fund will be managed by the DAO community through a transparent and democratic process, with the allocation of funds requiring a vote from the community.
20% of the supply is reserved for the DAO Treasury, which will be managed by the community through a decentralized autonomous organization (DAO). The tokens in the treasury will be used to fund any operating expenses of the DAO, including future development, security audits, internal growth initiatives, legal support and more.
5% of the supply is reserved for the initial liquidity pool, which will be used to provide liquidity for the Velvet DAO token on decentralized exchanges. This will ensure that there is enough liquidity for users to easily trade the token.
