Notice: on Nov 4, 2020, the NGM staking token will change from a fixed supply to having a 10% yearly new issuance rate. The NGM token will be transferable and tradeable on both centralized exchanges and the e-Money DEX. Please read our FAQs for more information.
e-Money bills itself as the “Next Generation of Money”. e-Money brings innovative, currency backed tokens to the market. In addition to the currency backed tokens, e-Money will issue its Next Generation of Money token “NGM” for the purpose of staking in order to secure the network.
The currency backed tokens are:
e-Money is built as a zone in the Cosmos ecosystem, which means anyone within the Cosmos ecosystem is free to use e-Money tokens as a means of payment and a store of value.
Other use cases outside of the Cosmos ecosystem include cross border payments/remittances, and E-commerce.

We expect e-Money staking rewards and transfers to go live on November 4, 2020 sometime after 13:00 UTC.
e-Money’s native token, NGM, is used to stake.
Vesting tokens may be staked. The rewards from staking NGM tokens come from three sources:
New NGM will be minted at a rate of 10% of the total supply each year, which will be distributed entirely to stakers.
Transaction fees can be paid with NGM or in any of the currency-backed tokens and we expect trading activities on the DEX to be the primary source of these.
The markup consists of an annual 1% inflation on each currency-backed token. The markup is applied continuously and distributed pro-rata to staked NGM token holders. In short, the rewards that are distributed to staked NGM tokens are tied directly to the amount of issued currency-backed tokens.
Current stable asset currencies that are supported are: EUR, CHF, DKK, SEK, and NOK, and there are plans to support more currencies in the future.
You can self-custody your e-Money NGM tokens, ideally using a Ledger hardware wallet. Here are instructions for using your Ledger wallet with e-Money.

The e-Money protocol takes control of your NGM tokens while you are staking. If you unbond your tokens, this process will take 21 days before the protocol returns your tokens to you.
From the moment you initiate the unbonding process, it takes 21 days to unstake. During this time you will not earn rewards. When the process is complete, you can transfer/trade your NGM tokens.
Yes, a portion of your staked NGM can be destroyed. There are two ways this can happen:
Yes. If the validator you delegate to is offline for over six (6) minutes during 1 hour, you will not earn rewards for at least an hour or however much longer it takes for your validator to resume operations.
The e-Money network first launched on Mar 25, 2020 with a fixed token supply of 100M NGM.
As of Nov 4, 2020, e-Money will begin issuing new tokens at an annual rate of 10% of the total supply, all of which will be distributed to stakers.
e-Money’s currency-backed stablecoins will be inflated by 1% per year, and these additional stablecoins will be used to buy back and burn NGM tokens. The NGM are bought on e-Money’s DEX and will act as a deflationary counterbalance to the inflation of NGM.
Since e-Money stablecoins are centralized (ie. currency-backed with a legal entity issuing the tokens), e-Money’s protocol uses a simple “authority key” that can change network parameters such as gas prices. The authority key is controlled by e-Money A/S (the legal entity).
The legal entity e-Money A/S can use the authority key on-the-fly to change gas prices (as they can fluctuate with exchange rates or as new denoms added, for example). The authority key can also add new stablecoin issuers on-chain. All other parameters (eg. slashing penalty) are set when the chain is launched (ie. genesis) by the validator set.
