Token Security

The NAOS token has a maximum supply of 300,000,000 tokens: broken down into the current supply of 210,000,000 tokens, and the 90,000,000 tokens which remain un-minted for now and will be used for liquidity mining. Of the 210,000,000 tokens, 10,517,863 are in current circulation. The contracts and addresses with the highest concentration of NAOS tokens are predominantly the team reserves (0x443280f88c82b1d598dc1c7a69c29cc09fa36744), the team distribution staging (0x6ce295e444439e590d7a55ba9c616c7813c2ae8b), liquidity for exchanges and private round investors.


NAOS Finance is a DeFi lending protocol allowing lenders and corporate borrowers to facilitate permissionless and borderless transactions on the blockchain. Built on Ethereum, our platform allows users to tokenize real-world assets and subsequent lending. We’ve obtained financing licenses in four countries and operate compliantly and legally in top markets around the globe, maintaining safety as a top priority and fostering enhanced trust in the lending/borrowing process.

There are two main components to the NAOS protocol: Formation, which is our liquidity protocol, and Galaxy, which is our lending protocol. In addition to working with all major lending protocols for sources of lending capital, NAOS is designed from day one to be a self-sufficient lending protocol. Galaxy is the conduit between real-world assets and DeFi liquidity, and the protocol is designed to work behind the scenes. More details on our product roadmap can be found here.

We also submitted our first MIP6 application with MakerDao to fund our first real world asset. We are working with a US-based supply chain finance services company that services OEMs in the electronics and semiconductor industry, and works only with OEM-directed spend. The community greenlight poll (first go/no-go decision) on May 31st was 75% yes.

In the effort to emulate the traditional banking experience on-chain, we’re also working closely with partners in oracle, insurance and retail distribution to build a RWA based DeFi ecosystem.

The development team, advisors and investors are presented on the team tab on the NAOS website. NAOS Finance is backed by top tier strategic investors including Coinbase Ventures, Huobi, OKex, Mechanism Capital, Lemniscap, Maven 11, Hashkey Capital, Collider Ventures, CMS among others.


The NAOS Token is a governance token that serves multiple purposes in ensuring the health and growth of the network. At a high-level, the token is intended to serve two key functions:

Governance: Vote and decide on important matters such as approving an asset’s onboarding, setting the interest rate on an asset, setting token the buyback strategy, determining the reward rate for different liquidity pools and determining the utilization of ecosystem funds.

Staking: We have allocated the largest portion of our token for our community to earn NAOS tokens by providing liquidity. What differentiates NAOS Finance from the other DeFi-centric protocols is that the staking pools are designed to fund real world asset lending.

Benefit to Bancor

We expect to generate swap fees of $10,000 based on expected trade volume of $5M, and we imagine Bancor to be the deepest pool. In addition to the fee, we’re looking to work closely with the Bancor team to launch new derivative products, allowing the Bancor community to tap into a fixed yield money market-like product that is backed by real world assets. We will pick 10 voters, based on taking the total number of voters in order of votes received, dividing the total by 10, and picking the first voter in each group, for an airdrop of 100 NAOS tokens each. In that way, voters are treated equally regardless of which way they vote.


I support it! Good luck
