Everything you need to know about your $VERA token.
$VERA is the original utility token for the Vera network and entered the market on September 23, 2021 as both an ERC-20 and BEP-20 token. Additional networks may be supported over time.
Staking $VERA will be required to participate in the Vera DAO which governs the treasury, Lending Pool (of cryptos from liquidity suppliers), NFT Rental Pools, and Mortgage Pools. For instance, DAO members may decide which NFT collection or asset type may be serviced or removed from our network. Complete details of our DAO and token design will be released at a later date.
$VERA is currently compatible with Ethereum, Binance Smart Chain, and Polygon wallets. The official $VERA token contract addresses for these blockchains are:
$VERA tokens that do not have either of these contract addresses are scams or fakes. Please be careful and do not be tricked!
1,000,000,000 (1 billion) $VERA tokens.
Note that $VERA tokens combined on all chains will never exceed this amount.
