Lendle Token

Everything you want to know about the Lendle Token:

$LEND is Lendle's native token, with a total supply of 100.000.000 tokens, deployed on the Mantle Blockchain. It can be bought on the open market and/or mined through providing liquidity on the Lendle market. $LEND token compliments Lendle by incentivizing the supply and borrowing of the assets in the Lendle markets. The $LEND rewards will vest over a period of 3 months, and users will share in the protocol's revenue during this period. The model incentivizes the locking/staking/vesting of the $LEND token to create sticky liquidity. Users that want to unlock their rewards before the vesting period ends will incur a 50% penalty on the amount they wish to unlock. The penalty is redistributed, in full, to those who lock their $LEND. More info on locking/staking and how the $LEND token gives you access to farm blue chips is explained here: Manage

Revenue Share

Lendle will be generating revenue:

  • By providing access to flash loans;

  • Through liquidations that occur on the Lendle markets;

  • By taking a share of the borrowing fees that are generated on the platform;

  • By redistributing the 50% penalty fee on rewards towards $LEND lockers.

There are 2 revenue streams if you will, the $LEND incentives and the Platform fees. $LEND incentives are generated continuously and distributed in different ways, which you can read more throughout our docs. ALL $LEND that will be distributed, from rewards, airdrops, etc. will be subject to a vesting schedule of 3 months. All the protocol fees generated go towards the MultiFeeDistribution Contract. Similarly, all the $LEND tokens that have been vested, go towards this contract first. Through the Manage panel, you can see your tokens vesting and their respective unlock time. We allow people to bypass the vesting, by unlocking immediately, however they are only getting 50% of what was vesting. The other 50% is sent to the staking contract and will be rewarded to people who have locked their $LEND. The protocol fees generated, which are paid for by the borrowers, are distributed in the following fashion:

  • 50% will be distributed as supply APY for that asset, allowing for more capital to enter the pool.

  • 40% will be distributed to investors whose $LEND tokens are either vesting (from rewards, airdrops, etc.), staked in our flexible staking contract, and/or locked in our stake-lock contract.

  • 10% will become protocol revenue, of which 5% goes to the dev wallet, securing a sustainable runway to operate the protocol and the remainder 5% is allocated for revenue sharing and as a reserve.

Private sale -> Pre-minted and used to sell to a small number of investors under a 6 month linear vesting to secure project runway

Initial liquidity event -> Pre-minted and paired with the proceeds from the public liquidity event Partnerships and Community -> Pre-minted / Secured by Multisig Liquidity Incentives -> Distributed by MultiFeeDistributor to Lendle markets Reserve Treasury -> Pre-minted / Secured by Multisig Team -> Cliffed for 3 months, vesting over 24 months in vesting contract

Airdrops -> Reserved for initial and future airdrop campaigns

Max supply: 100.000.000 Emission schedule: 5 years

Public Liquidity event


  • When: Started at 10:00 AM UTC on Thursday 31/08

  • Duration: 24 hours

  • Price: $0.1 per token until we reach $300,000 raised, after which the reverse Dutch auction-style formula takes over for price discovery, until the $500,000 raised hard cap

  • Liquidity Event Supply: 3 million $LEND tokens

  • Vesting: None; all tokens become available immediately after the event

The Reverse-Dutch Auction Model: A New Model for Fair Token Distribution

Introducing our innovative model, designed to level the playing field and provide everyone an equal opportunity to acquire tokens without the usual price volatility concerns associated with token listings. Our primary goal with this model is to ensure that each participant has an equal chance to secure tokens before they hit the open market.

Transparent Price Determination

So, how is the token price determined? Let’s break it down:

  1. The fair launch auction kicks off with a set Fully Diluted Valuation (FDV).

  2. Tokens are initially priced at a minimum of $0.1 per $LEND token.

  3. Once the auction raises a predefined amount of $300,000, the intriguing phase of price discovery begins.

Price Discovery: The Heart of Reverse Dutch Auctions

During the price discovery phase, the price of each token continuously adjusts with every purchase made. This groundbreaking mechanism ensures that the price remains equitable, reflecting the evolving market demand. The formula is elegantly simple:

Price = Total Amount Raised / Liquidity Event Circulating Supply

It’s worth noting that every participant in the liquidity event, including whitelisted addresses, will be awarded tokens at the same final price. This price is based on the concluding valuation of the auction, guaranteeing a level playing field for all.


Lendle has allocated 2% of the total supply towards airdrops. Airdrop recipients receive their $LEND vested, in the same way as $LEND earned via protocol use. Receivers may choose to pay the 50% penalty in order to receive their $LEND immediately, or wait for three months to receive the entire balance — while also earning a portion of the protocol revenue.

Airdrops have a limited claim period. When a new airdrop is created, the total claimable $LEND is temporarily locked for distribution to that specific airdrop. Potential recipients then have two weeks to claim their $LEND. Any tokens left unclaimed after this time are released/clawed back and may be distributed via another future airdrop. * The team reserves the right to disqualify accounts that are deemed to 'Sybil' the airdrops.
