Questions and answers
What makes the value of Basels increase?
In the long term, after 3 to 5 years once a previously acquired artwork has been sent to auction and finally sold, then the proceeds will go in full to buy Basels from the liquidity pool and send to an address with weight 0, without the possibility to bring them back to the market, that is equivalent to burning the tokens. In the short term, when new fund members acquire their Basels from the liquidity pool by its mechanism, as long as no new Basels are sold to the market, the price increases.
What drives the price of Basels?
A sale in auction of one of the artworks in our collection, and the corresponding buying and burning of the Basels. New investors demand to participate in our fund, therefore buying Basels from the liquidity pool, adding XLM. The fluctuations in value of XLM: as our Basels are exchangeable for XLM in the liquidity pool, a stark variation in the price of XLM will also mean a stark valuation change in the value of Basels.
How does the custodian afford its operation costs or benefits from the project?
Mainly from the commission of 10% when the artwork is acquired and the 10% by the time of the final sale. A second income will come from the liquidity provider rewards, which represents a constant source of income. Our liquidity pool has a fee of 0,3% on every trade, which is given to the LPs (liquidity providers), in the first place the custodian who has deployed the tokens. The more increase in the value of the prices of Basels, the more volume in the liquidity pool, the more fees are paid to those who had provided liquidity.
