499Block:Let’s dive into your tokens $Talk. Can you share with us your tokenomics? And what are some of $Talk use cases?

Kim:$TALK is the governance token of the Talken NFT Suite ecosystem. With $TALK you can make operational decisions in a decentralized manner through proposals and voting. Talken is a community driven project with DAO which means decision making power is given to the Talken community. $Talk also serves many utility purposes, Users can use $TALK to purchase NFT. Artists can purchase marketing packages on TALKEN platform with $TALK. This revenue is split between the foundation and $TALK stakers as rewards. Staking: Stake $TALK for exclusive NFT drops, Metaverse fan meetings, and exclusive content. Use $TALK as well as other supported tokens to mint, own, trade ultra rare NFTs. Algorithmically calculated token burns to create an inherently deflationary tokenomics. Fans are incentivized to stake for longer periods to tap exclusive benefits with celebrities and artists.
