VIS is ENVISION’s fungible ERC20 cryptocurrency utility token to be used within the ENVISION ecosystem.
VIS tokens are the exclusive form of payment on the ENVISION marketplace where consumers exchange VIS tokens for the NFT associated to a piece of stock media directly with the content creator.
VIS tokens are also used to distribute rewards, fund the platform and incentivise platform participants/token holders.
The content creator will have complete control over the price of content in FIAT terms (USD), however, content price is displayed and settled in VIS. The number of VIS tokens needed to purchase content will fluctuate as its relative strength against USD changes. As adoption increases and VIS's relative value against USD, HODLers who pre purchase and HODL VIS tokens will be rewarded with decreasing the cost of content in FIAT terms.
The VIS token has three key features
- 0.2% of all VIS transactions are burnt, assisting the stability of VIS
- 0.5% of all VIS transactions are sent into locked liquidity pool, reducing circulating supply and increasing liquidity as adoption increases
- Fixed maximum supply, 100% of tokens are minted with no additional supply being created

Public sale participants could select from three vesting options, 100 days, 50 days and no vesting, each vesting option comes with varying prices. All public sale vesting commenced Q2 2022
The team is allocated a total of 30,000,000 VIS tokens, founding team’s tokens start vesting from Q4 2022 at 5% of their total token allocation released each month until 100% of allocation is distributed. As of Q1 2023, circa 50% of the total allocated team tokens have been allocated to team members. Any new team members will have their team tokens commence vesting 6 months after start date.
The foundation reserve of 10,000,000 VIS tokens will be released at 10% per month beginning from Q4 2023. This reserve of tokens will be available to fund a range of operations as the team sees fit including development, marketing, hosting costs, BD, etc. Depending on liquidity headroom and platform performance at the time of unlocking the foundation reserve may not be needed in which case tokens will remain under control of the team.
A maximum of 10,000,000 VIS tokens is allocated to individuals or businesses providing advisory services. All advisors will have 5% of their initial total token allocation released each month following Envision Stock Pty Ltd receiving signed agreement until 100% of allocation is distributed.
7,000,000 VIS tokens are allocated to rewards, giveaways, incentives, etc which the team expect to support excess of 10 years of growth at which point the need for token rewards will be negligible.
Partnerships will vary, however, will be reciprocal in nature. A maximum of 10,000,000 VIS token can be used to incentivise and negotiate partnerships and will likely be negotiated with long term vesting schedules attached.
3,000,000 VIS tokens have been deployed to liquidity pools, market makers and order books to support active trading markets. As the traded volume of VIS increases there is a potential scenario where the community provides additional liquidity on top of this allocation.
45,000,000 VIS tokens are available for future sale at the discretion of the team. This allocation will be offered in conjunction with equity on a long term vesting basis at above market rate. This allocation is unlikely to be fully required and any unused tokens will be permanently burned. Announcements regarding the future sales allocation will be made public as soon as an agreement is reached.
The remaining allocation of 50,000,000 VIS will be locked for 24 months at which point the team will make a decision on what these tokens are used for. The team will consider either burning or distributing for rewards dependant on tokenomics at that point in time.
The remaining allocation of 50,000,000 VIS will be locked until Q2 2024, at which point the team will make a decision on what these tokens are used for. The team will consider either burning or distributing for rewards dependent on tokenomics at that point in time.
The above vesting schedules are only applied to allocations that have been associated to an individual or businesses, i.e to date only 50% of the team tokens have an allocation and therefore will be released in accordance with the above, the remaining 50% will sit in the teams treasury until its allocated to a new team member. Therefore the circulating supply will grow much slower than is suggested above. As and when possible the team will publicise any significant agreements that involve VIS tokens.
