Revenue Model

  1. 1.
    A 20% commission on developer and designer fees that they charge for the use of their templates through the Forward Marketplace (fixed deployment fee, a monthly/annual fee, a transaction fee, or a percentage of the transaction fee) like App Store or Play Store. All smart contracts will first attempt to deduct fees from the deployer’s pre-purchased token pool, otherwise, they will acquire tokens from the open market as necessary to fulfill the transaction.
  2. 2.
    % markup on gas fees by the chain
  3. 3.
    Every transaction on the Forward Chain requires gas to be paid in $FORWARD
  4. 4.
    When a blockchain or subnet is deployed, there will be a fixed cost incurred for the deployment and an annual renewal cost paid in $FORWARD.
The way the protocol makes money is by increasing dApps, blockchains, and subnets deployed, and increasing usage of the same.
