Bolt Market

Mining

Producers post requests onto a Bolt market in USD. Miners earn 1 BLT for every $1 of goods they fullfill for Producers, though the earning rate will change over time. Miners register with the Bolt Market and go through a verification process to prevent fraudulent behavior. Sorting and selection of projects and Producers by Miners occurs on a Bolt market.

Products

Anyone can purchase products with Bolt tokens on a Bolt market. Products from Producers funded with Bolt grants are available for sale in Bolt. Products are purchased at the same rate as the earning rate for Miners. The rate for both Mining and Products will change over time based on exchange prices, but will not increase or decrease by more than 0.4% per day.

Development

The software behind Bolt markets is open source. Anyone can run their own Bolt market. The open source software will be in open beta in early 2019. Individuals or Bolt DFOs that run a Bolt market may receive grants from the community. To be notified when Bolt markets are avaialble, or to register for the closed beta, subscribe at join.bolt.bz .
