What is MilkyWay?

MilkyWay offers a liquid staking solution for Celestia’s TIA. By staking your TIA coins with MilkyWay, you receive an on-chain representation of your TIA staking position called milkTIA. The staked TIA is used to secure Celestia. You can utilize milkTIA for various DeFi activities.

Does MilkyWay have a token?

MilkyWay will have 2 tokens, $milkTIA and $MILK. milkTIA tokens are distributed as a reward for staking TIA tokens on MilkyWay. milkTIA tokens can be used for lending, staking derivatives, perpetual trading and as payment for Blobspace and gas on Celestia.

On the other hand, $MILK will be the native token of the MilkyWay Protocol. $MILK holders will receive a portion of the 10% protocol fee charged on all staking rewards generated by milkTIA holders. $MILK will also be the governance token of the MilkyWay Protocol, meaning that $MILK holders will have the power to vote on changes to the protocol.

Will MilkyWay to an airdrop?

MilkyWay have confirmed they will do an airdrop. The MilyWay mainnet also only went live on 18th December 2023 so we are still very early for this airdrop!
