Staking and growth rewards

70% of the aggregate IT supply is allocated towards staking rewards and growth of the network. Token holders can support the development and expansion of the network by staking their tokens in the staking pool.

You earn rewards when you stake Isizwe Token (IT) for a period of time as an incentive to acquire and hold onto IT.

This allows users to capitalise on their holdings while retaining ownership, giving them the freedom to grow their crypto assets and earn up to double-digit interest rates annually.

The number of tokens rewarded will reduce over time, ensuring higher rewards at the early stage of the network. As this is a long term sustainable project we are offering token holders extended staking periods.

Staking is offered on Isizwe.com. Users can deposit their Isizwe Tokens and earn interest. Once the deposit is confirmed, interest will start to accrue immediately.

There are three holding term options for users to choose at the time of deposit:

  • 6 months
  • 12 months
  • 24 months

Early staking

Early staking is defined as the 6 month period following the launch of the Isizwe TGE. With the forecasted TGE launch date of 01 October 2022, users that purchase and stake tokens before 31 March 2023 will be eligible for early staking rewards. For example,

6% - 6 months
13% - 12 months
25% - 24 months

Buyback Mechanism

In return for capital to start the rollout of infrastructure being given to IIPs, Isizwe will earn a percentage of revenue from all transactions into perpetuity.

Isizwe will use this revenue, post expenses, to buy Isizwe Tokens on the open market. These tokens will be placed in the staking and growth rewards pool.

This continuous buying has the effect of replenishing the staking and growth pool while also driving the demand of tokens on the supply side.
