  • Avalanche subnet looks to be possible for Lelantus and Lelantus Spark.
  • To evaluate feature set and work required to port existing work over.
  • Plan is to be an independent chain but to reserve supply to airdrop existing Firo users to claim on new chain. Restrict to masternode holders?

Possible to include those who hold in a firo core/mobile wallet? Give us small holders a chance aswell

Personally I’d like some more detail on the potential pros and cons on these * to aid in forming an opinion one way or the other.
Also provisionally how is the Firo tokenomics structure going to work exactly within Avalanche, and the airdrops?

Tbh, I was hoping once Spark was released it would allow us to settle for quite a long time on a stable base protocol and to divert resources into building out Elysium and peripheral infrastructure so people have both easier access and reason to use Firo. For instance we’ve only just got a mobile wallet, which is pretty late in Firo’s development lifecycle.


Is it me, or is anyone else thinking we will see thousands of nodes just liquidate in order to stake AVAX (or some other coin) and earn passive income instead. Not sure how an airdrop can fix that… except for encouraging people not to do it before the chain switch. However I don’t know much about this whole proposal, so more detail is required for me personally…

Without more detail, I don’t think the community is able to offer any kind of informed consent one way or the other.

I think Legacy chain and whatever new chains will be running in parallels.
