FAQ

1. "What is 50/50?"

The following is NOT FINANCIAL ADVICE. It is for education and entertainment purposes only.
50/50 is the method best suited to provide stability for both the platform and for your underlying investment. By boosting liquidity, the 50/50 strategy reduces price volatility, and helps $MOLOTOV stay above the peg for longer to keep the Stills printing. This, in turn, attracts new investors and keeps the ecosystem growing. 1)When you claim your $MOLOTOV rewards in the Headquarters, sell 50% of them for $FTM. 2)When you go to provide MOLOTOV-FTM LP, stake the entirety of your remaining MOLOTOV with the $FTM you've just purchased.

2. "APR is much higher in the Trenches than in the farm for MOLOTOV-FTM LP. Why would I not just invest everything there?"

The farm APR is linear and prints 24/7, regardless of MOLOTOV's relation to the peg. Headquarters, on the other hand, prints only when WHISKY's TWAP is above 1.01. Therefore, it may not always be that an investor gets a higher return from the Headquarters than from the MOLOTOV-FTM pool. Because $MOLOTOV follows the price of $FTM, the MOLOTOV-FTM LP is akin to holding $FTM in your wallet, except with the bonus of a high farming APR on top of it. In other words, if you're bullish on $FTM's price action, the MOLOTOV-FTM LP is a way of holding exposure to that single asset while also reaping high APRs.

Terms and Mechanisms

1. "What is an expansionary epoch?"

An expansionary epoch is the amount of $MOLOTOV that is printed by $ZELENSKY in order to increase the total circulating supply.
To simplify the explanation with a hypothetical example, letโ€™s say an epoch is 3 days long and there are $100 dollars in the circulating supply.
If the money printer grows the supply by 10% of the existing circulating supply each day, at the end of the 3 days you'd have 100*1.1*1.1*1.1 = $133.
Then, letโ€™s say the emissions decrease to 5% per day.
Youโ€™d then have have $133 *1.05 *1.05 *1.05 = $153 at the end of this second epoch.

2. โ€œWhat is compounding in the context of Zelensky Finance?โ€

Earning a return on gains you've already made from previous periods is what is commonly referred to as compounding.
For example, consider a 3% daily APR on an initial investment of $100.
After 24 hours it would grow to $103.
After 365 days without compounding: $1195.
After 365 days, compounding once daily: $4,848,272.

Core Values

1. โ€œI'm invested in the project for the long term, and I feel guilty taking profits. Am I still a team player if I move profits somewhere outside of the project?โ€

Never put all your funds in one basket, even if it's $MOLOTOV. Always take gains along the way. The Zelensky team views it as a success if, over time, everyone gets their initial investment back into their wallets and continues investing with the profits that come after that.

Contractions & UBOND

1. "When can I swap $MOLOTOV for $TANK ?"

$TANK will only become available in the Lifeboat following epochs in which the Time Weighted Average Price (TWAP) of $molotov is under peg. This means that $MOLOTOV's price will have had to have been under 1 $FTM per 1 MOLOTOV for the majority of the previous epoch in order to trigger the Armory to "open".The Armory will always open at the very beginning of a new epoch, and remain open for the entire epoch โ€” the Armory can not and will never open mid-epoch โ€” and during epochs in which the Armory is open, $MOLOTOV will not be printed in the Headquarters.

2. "What is the formula to calculate the redemption bonus for $TANK?"

To encourage redemption of $TANK for $MOLOTOV when $MOLOTOV's TWAP > 1.1, and in order to incentivize users to redeem at a higher price, $TANK redemption will be more profitable with a higher $TANK TWAP value. The $TANK to $MOLOTOV ratio will be 1:R, where R can be calculated in the formula as shown below:
To further illustrate why the longer you hold $TANK the more profitable it is, these TANK can be redeemed for MOLOTOV when the price is above peg in the future, plus an extra incentive for how longer they are held above peg. This amounts to inflation and sell pressure for MOLOTOV when it is above peg, helping to push it back toward 1 MOLOTOV to 1 FTM ratio.

3. "I expected $TANK to be issued in the Armory, but there is none. Why?"

There is a balanced state "at peg" when $MOLOTOV's TWAP is between 1.00 and 1.01, and this means there is neither contraction nor inflation.

4. "When can I swap $TANK back to $MOLOTOV?"

You can swap it back again when the following two criteria are met:
1: $ZELENSKY TWAP is above peg and
2. There is enough in the treasury to cover it the redemption.

5. "Is $TANK right for me?"

Like anything else in crypto, obtaining $TANK is not risk-free. Just like in the real world, you are purchasing debt from the protocol with the expectation that you will be redeemed at a premium in the future. To date, this has occurred after all contractions, but past performance does not guarantee the same future outcomes. $TANK is ideal for those with a medium to long-term time preference, as it incentivizes holding in exchange for potentially extremely lucrative rewards. If you are looking for a quick flip or have short-term time preference, $TANK may not be the right investment option for you.
