Q. I got VACUS and I want to link it with Avacus.

Account linking means connecting Avacus’ wallet with a Counterwallet address.By doing this, there are benefits such as dividends, etc.
To receive the dividend, you need to link the dividend targeted corresponding token (VACUS or VACUS.VACUS) with the Counterwallet address.

Please note that sub-tokens that are distributed when new trading currencies are added will not be eligible for dividends unless they are linked with the Counterwallet address.

Q. What is the vested balance?

Vested balance is proof that you had the VACUS balance for a certain period of time.
Based on “VACUS balance”, it will gradually be added according to “elapsed time since possession”

Vested balance will slowly increase over the course of 2 weeks,
 up to the number of VACUS linked with your account on Avacus.
Regardless of the amount of VACUS you hold, it will take about 2 weeks to get all your balance to be fully vested.

Vested balance is used rather than actual VACUS balance held for calculation of dividends, requirement for voting rights, user level conditions.
This system is designed to encourage long-term holding of VACUS.

※Your vested balance will increase by [(Current VACUS balance - vested balance) *0.1] each 144 blocks (about 24 hours) from the moment of obtaining VACUS.




Q. What is sub-token? What can I use it for?

By holding a sub-token, you can receive 75% of the Avacus transaction fee as a dividend each time a currency trade corresponding to that sub-token is made on Avacus.
Each time a new trading currency is added on Avacus, the sub-token is distributed (Airdropped) for free to the person holding VACUS.
When a new trading currency is decided on being added, the same number of sub-tokens “VACUS.◯◯◯(Currency name)” as the number of VACUS held are distributed for free.
 (Excluding the currency added by sponsor system. ※Please refer to [])

VACUS.VACUS” holders are the subject of the dividend of the VACUS transaction fee, and similarly the “VACUS.BCH” holders are the subject of the dividend of the BCH transaction fee.

※BTC transaction fee will be the subject of the dividend to the VACUS holders.
※When receiving VACUS dividend with VACUS.VACUS, it is necessary to link Counter Wallet with Avacus.
※For sub-tokens that have already completed the Airdrops, they are available for trade on DEX just like VACUS.

Q. Can I store “VACUS.VACUS” in the Avacus wallet?

You can not store “VACUS.VACUS” in the Avacus wallet.Calculation of VACUS.VACUS vested balance requires linking with Counter Wallet. ※Please be careful since if you transfer VACUS.VACUS to VACUS Wallet, it will not be deposited to VACUS wallet and you will not be able to get the funds back.


Q. Wouldn't it be possible for someone to deliberate price fluctuations in Counter Wallet to favor the VACUS rate on Avacus?

The rate of currency on Avacus does not simply refer to the current value ot the Counter Wallet.
In order to prevent deliberate price fluctuations, Avacus’s unique algorithm is built in for rate calculation.



Q. How does Avacus management gain profit?

First of all, 10% of the discount amount of each transaction is used as a transaction fee.Within this fee, 75% will be returned to the VACUS holder as dividend, and the remaining 25% will be the profit for Avacus management.
The management and development members are also VACUS holders. Since we also have the right to receive a dividend to our own VACUS, the dividends we receive are also considered as profit for Avacus management.

※Currently, the percentage of fee returned as dividend is 75% → 100% for a one year limited time. A program like this can only be done because Avacus management is the VACUS holder.



Q. How do I pronounce “VACUS”?

It is pronounced “VA-khus”.
