TEA Project’s TEA Token: A Stablecoin Not Pegged to the Dollar

  • Users can stake tea to mining nodes to earn rewards.
  • Users can purchase TApp tokens to invest in promising TApps.
  • TEA token is burned when a prospective miner buys a CML for their mining node.
  • Consumers spend TEA tokens to use TApps.
  • TEA is used for gas in the TEA ecosystem.

How Does TEA’s Peg to Computational Resources Affect Its Price?

  • If the price of TEA/USD goes down, then both consumers and developers (who need to pay miners) could purchase TEA in the open market to secure “cheap” TEA for future computing expenses.
  • There is the possibility for actual arbitrage between different platforms executing the same computing task.
