Shock Token Adds Staking to Hyper Deflation

BOMB came out with a 1% destruction rate and made waves fast. There’s been some vocal critics of BOMB’s burn %, usually from rival tokens. Too high, too low, too unequal for small transactions. Many tweaks on BOMB’s contract are based around the supply or destruction.

Aftershock token sticks out from the rest and it starts with their form of staking. It starts with a 3% burn rate but also has a 3% dividend tax on every on-chain transfer. This tax is held by the smart contract and paid out to private wallets holding SHOCK. To claim you send a 0 ETH transaction to the contract address 0x11Ded8aDdDa881F700FBDa2Fe2030656289322a3.

Self-destructing tokens have a built-in incentive to trade on a centralized exchange with fees lower than their burn %. SHOCK tries to counter this with dividends from the token’s traffic, exchange wallets are blocked from a share. Even if the token crashes, at least you make something from the cashing out. Being paid from the ups and downs does make it easier to stomach the risk.

Aftershock has decided to go with a 5 round airdrop and are between round 2 and 3. They’ve taken their time with distribution, which can be frustrating but better for token price long term. These tokens and...
