Layer3, a community-driven initiative focused on building an omnichain infrastructure for distribution, identity, and incentives, has adjusted its tokenomics and increased the initial airdrop to 7.5% of the total supply, Layer3 Foundation shared in a recent post on X.

As detailed in Layer3’s documentation, the total supply of L3, Layer3’s native token, is set at 3,333,333,333. It is planned that 51% of the total supply will be distributed to the community, around 25% to core contributors, 23% to investors, and the remaining to advisors.

Of the 7.5% of the total L3 token supply allocated for release at the initial airdrop, 6% is dedicated to rewarding the project’s early adopters (OG) and S1 program participants. These are users who actively participated in the project’s early stages and demonstrably contributed to Layer3’s initial development.

The remaining 1.5% is allocated to S2 reward program participants. The snapshot to determine eligibility for the OG and S1 airdrop occurred on May 10, 2024.

The latest updates come as Layer3 gears up for its summer token launch and airdrop.

Last month, the project said it secured $15 million in Series A funding led by ParaFi and Greenfield Capital, with participation from Electric Capital, King River, and Tioga Capital, among others. The round also saw participation from angel investors from LayerZero and notable figures like Scott Keto, Chief Operating Officer at CoinList, and Mats Olsen, Dune’s co-founder.

Layer3 aims to use the funds to support its growth, including a planned team expansion and operations extension into the Asia-Pacific region.
