Bonding curve

A bonding curve is a smart contract that automatically creates and destroys tokens according to pre-defined rules.

Ideamarket's bonding curve creates new tokens when people buy them, and destroy them when people sell them.

This means token supply is theoretically infinite, but the price to buy new tokens increases with the supply already in circulation.

Our bonding curve achieves a few important goals:

  2. Provides a level playing field. The bonding curve rules are the same for all tokens on Ideamarket.
