Genesis Allocations

The purpose of HASH is to proactively and automatically manage the health of the network through programmatic incentives.

Genesis allocations were derived using a 3-step process from an analysis of the Polkadot parachains listed on

  1. Data collection - recorded the genesis allocations for each parachain and candidate (n=170)
  2. Data cleansing - labels used for the allocations (pie charts) are inconsistent across chains, so we mapped each of the allocations into a consistent structure (as defined below)
  3. Aggregate and score - with a clean data set, we were able to aggregate all parachains into a consistent score for each allocation category.

Allocation Categories in Analysis

Founding TeamFounding TeamIndividuals/companies responsible for establishing and executing the Network vision since conception
InvestorsSeedInitial round of fundraising
InvestorsStrategicSecond and subsequent round(s) of fundraising if needed
CommunityFunds allocated to engage and support general token holders and ambassadors (“fans”)
EcosystemFunds allocated to support applications and organizations using Hashed Network (“users”)
MarketingFunds allocated to drive awareness of the benefits and features of the Hashed Network
DevelopmentFunds allocated to continue building the base protocol, pallets, and network services
Slot Leases
CrowdloanRewards paid to accounts that contribute to a crowdloan resulting in a successful parachain lease; includes initial campaign and reserve
AuctionsFunds allocated to directly swap or stake for a parachain slot; not limited to any specific auction
ReserveReserveFunds with no specific allocation, such as treasury or reserve

Prototypical Genesis Allocations

The following pie chart shows a prototypical genesis allocation of other parachains and parachain candidates (data as of Nov 2022). Hashed Network uses this allocation as the starting point and applies changes as necessary via governance.

Since auctions and crowdloans are both part of the slot lease process, Hashed Network combines them into the "Slot Leases" allocation but we've left them separate below for the data point.


For more information on the analysis, see the repo or the Google Slides. The slides contain a previous data set; repo is generally current; the Nov 2022 snapshot was used for Hashed Network genesis.


Vesting records were created for each of the genesis allocations. The vesting pallet supports linear vesting, so the Network created 3 records per allocation in order to provide a balanced curve. A- and B-vesting are both 42% and C-vesting is 16%, for a total of 100% of that allocation to be vested over the duration of C. With variations based on the specific allocation, A-vesting occurs in the first 1-3 years, B-vesting in 2-5 years, and C-vesting is 3-10 years.

These are the rates at which HASH becomes available to the allocations. Each of the allocations will have also have a burn rate for un-used HASH. These parameters will be decided via governance in months 12-18.


Vesting and budgeting for crowdloan rewards

The chart below shows the vesting, or unlock schedule for the Slot Leases allocation.


The chart shows that 82 M is unlocked in the first 24 months, 60 M of which is applied to the initial crowdloan campaign and 22 M that will carry forward to future campaigns. The initial crowdloan campaign, targeting a 2-year lease, has a reward pool of 6% of the total HASH supply. Crowdloan participants will be rewarded with HASH linearly over the duration of the lease.
