A New Buyback Policy Coming Soon!
In this post we would like to announce an exciting new policy based around the BUILDTEAM token.
That's right, BuildTeam would like to officially announce that our token buyback program will begin soon!
Currently, we have one of the only tokens trading on the Bitshares DEX that entitles users to rewards based on a percentage of the organization's monthly revenues.
This in itself offers outstanding value when compared to other tokens that don't offer the same incentives to hold them.
Now we'd like to push the bar even higher and inform traders and holders that as of April 16, 2019 we will be using 5% of total nett revenue for each pay period to buy back tokens. This will not affect distributable earnings as this will come from the BuildTeam savings portion, we are effectively decreasing savings in favour of token buybacks.
Benefits of our Token Buyback Campaign
The technical definition of liquidity is, “The degree to which an asset or security can be quickly bought or sold in the market without affecting the asset’s price”. The higher the volume of activity in a market, the more an asset can be regarded as liquid. Our new token buyback campaign will add liquidity to the market giving traders and stakeholders more flexibility.
This action will most likely result in several forms of price appreciation. Naturally, as BuildTeam buys back tokens, the price will move upwards as a direct result but that will just be one of the forces putting upward pressure on the token.
Stakeholders of BuildTeam tokens will benefit as there will be fewer tokens on the market that can be added to the staking pool. Staking entitles stakeholders to a monthly reward based on earnings and holders receive a reward that is proportional to the number of tokens they are staking in relation to the total number of outstanding tokens being staked.
As tokens become more scarce, outside investors typically take note of this and buy tokens themselves effectively drying up the supply. Price appreciation of a token also can be a good way to advertise the token as people see high percentage gains and become interested in conducting research about the token and the entity backing it.
Suffice it to say all this means that our buy-back policy will most definitely put upward pressure on the token beyond our own internal efforts and result in further upward momentum going forward.
Now we'd like to take a moment to highlight our token spreadsheet and go over a few possible scenarios.
BUILDTEAM Token ROI Scenarios
There are many different possible circumstances that could put upward pressure on the BUILDTEAM token price.
The first scenario below assumes a STEEM price of $0.46 and a BT token price of $0.45.
Assuming Steem distributions remained at 1,400 per payout period the USD earned annually per BT Token staked would be $.16 which would amount to a ROI of 36.40% annually.
We've developed a scenario spreadsheet as a tool and mechanism to highlight various assumptions such as the ones stated above.
If a BUILDTEAM stakeholder had reinvested the STEEM tokens they had earned back into the token, the numbers would be even more impressive due to the effects of compound interest.
But what happens if the STEEM distribution increases by 10% per pay period (starting with 1400 for pay period 1)?
In this scenario ROI increases to 123.47% annually.
What happens if STEEM price is $1 and we have STEEM distributions increasing by 10% per pay period?
This would result in ROI delivering a 269.54% return annually.
As you can see there is a lot of potential for price appreciation depending on improved circumstances.
If anyone wants to play around with the spreadsheet and try out different numbers for themselves, they can ask in our Discord and we will make the spreadsheet file available for download.
Why should you consider staking BUILDTEAM Tokens?
Buying BUILDTEAM tokens is a relatively easy process which can be done on the secondary market through the Bitshares exchange here: https://wallet.bitshares.org/#/market/BUILDTEAM_BTS
Please note that BuildTeam does not engage in direct token sales and all tokens are distributed as bounties to workers and builders of our services.
There are many reasons why you should consider staking BUILDTEAM tokens:
1.) They provide regular rewards via STEEM staking payments made semi-monthly to stakeholders.
2.) BUILDTEAM tokens are a way to fund BuildTeam's continued efforts to build on the Steem ecosystem.
3.) The tokens have a limited supply and low maximum distribution rate of 5000 tokens per month, which means they have a lot of potential to increase in value quite easily and quickly given the right market conditions.
4.) BuildTeam itself has ambitious plans to add to the use case model of BUILDTEAM tokens in 2019!
