The COVESTING Token (COV) is an ERC20 utility token built on the Ethereum blockchain, designed to be used by members within the Covesting module.
COV Staking offers major benefits for Covesting Followers as well as Strategy managers. Activating a membership plan by depositing and staking COV tokens will unlock various levels of utility benefits, based on the amount of personal tokens staked.
Staking activates all of the following four utilities of the COV token. The offered level of benefits provided by each utility will depend on the obtained membership – Advanced, Premium or Elite:
This utility allows Followers to receive a 100% discount on entry fees for all Followings. Any Followings which are started while a staking membership is active will not be charged a 1% entry fee.
This utility increases all Followings' profit share (2%/3%/5%) in favor of the Follower by decreasing the platform's profit distribution share.
This utility increases a Followers maximum Following limit (x2/x3/unlimited) per each separate strategy
Reduce trade fees for all trades within a Strategy (10%/20%/30%).
Staking COV allows both strategy Managers and Followers to gain access to exclusive benefits and utilities within the Covesting module ecosystem by locking (staking) a set amount of COV tokens. Based on the membership plan chosen - Advanced, Premium or Elite - a set amount of tokens are locked in the Wallet and the corresponding utilities are unlocked:
A membership plan and the associated utilities will remain active until the membership is deactivated by the Manager/Follower.
