A Suite of Innovative Features

Elys Network is not short on innovative functionalities. The platform is equipped with a multi-token infrastructure, a revenue-sharing model, a unique reward structure, staking/governance, and an AMM DEX. These features, coupled with opportunities for passive income on stablecoins, provide users with a comprehensive suite of tools for optimizing their financial strategies.


There are various tokens within the Elys ecosystem, and each serves a unique purpose:

ELYS – staking & governance token of ELYS Network

EDEN – reward token earned by both stakers & liquidity providers

ELYS-LP – Liquidity Providers can receive a pool token (LP token) or a molecule token. Molecule Tokens are assigned to a multi-asset index. For example, holding a molecule token would get exposure to Atom, ETH, BTC, and USDC. Find out more about molecule tokens here.

EDEN-Boost – a multiplier token to reward long-term stakers. 

Revenue Sharing Model

  • Applicable for LPs, validators, and delegators, distributed in USDC.

Non-Inflationary Revenue Sources

  • Margin Trading Interest Fees
  • Styx (Cross Chain Omni Bridge) Fees
  • Swap Fees
  • Transaction Fees
  • MEV (Maximum Extractable Value)

Revenue Sharing Distribution

  • Stakers/Delegators: 35% of DEX revenue
  • Liquidity Providers: 65% of DEX revenue


  • During the initial liquidity bootstrapping phase, rewards will be distributed in EDEN and EDEN-Boost, and given to ELYS stakers and liquidity providers.
  • Once users earn EDEN they have three choices of what to do with it:
  1. Commit It – a way to compound your EDEN rewards (earn EDEN-Boost). Can be uncommitted at any time. No unbonding period. After EDEN is uncommitted, it can be claimed, vested, or re-committed.
  2. Claim It – deposited into your wallet and able to be swapped.
  3. Vest It – lock EDEN for ELYS in a 180-day time frame. Locked EDEN is burned and turns into ELYS in a 1:1 ratio over the 180-day timeframe. During the locking schedule, the EDEN is turned into liquid ELYS which the user can claim and use however they want. Locking can be canceled at any time.
  • EDEN-Boost is earned while ELYS is staked or EDEN is committed and is aimed at rewarding long-term holders and has a 100% APR. You can also commit EDEN-Boost to earn additional EDEN.


  • Delegate ELYS to a validator node on the Elys Network
  • Participate in governance
  • Earn rewards (35% of DEX revenue) paid in USDC, EDEN, and EDEN-Boost (based on your choices from the Rewards section).
  • The initial unbonding period is 14 days (this could change with a governance vote).


Elys Network is more than just a new player in the cryptocurrency space; it’s a trailblazer in the DeFi landscape within the Cosmos Ecosystem. With its innovative multi-token infrastructure, revenue-sharing model, rewards system, and staking, Elys Network is poised to make a lasting impact in the blockchain and DeFi space. As we watch its journey unfold, Elys Network is undoubtedly set to redefine the standards of DeFi.
