Methodology for each Token(BTC/ETH):

The specific amount of BTC and ETH will be held in reserve pools for each $HOPE token is determined by the price discovery mechanism, which is ongoing and can be explored on our website. Currently, the initial fixed ratio between BTC and ETH is 1:10, but it can be subject to adjustment through LightDAO governance in the future.

The initial value of $HOPE is $0.50

To ensure fair price discovery, we collect the OHLC data (Open, High, Low, and Close) every minute from three exchanges (Binance, OKX, and Coinbase). These values are averaged for each minute and exchange over the entire discovering period. The token price for each minute is then calculated as the average of the OHLC values for the three exchanges. The Time-Weighted Average Price (TWAP) is the average of all token prices over the entire discovering period.

For each token BTC/ETH:

For every time tt, where O = Open, H = High, L = Low, C = Close, P = Price at time tt:


Time weighted average price (TWAP) for each token. NN is the number of 1-minute intervals across the entire price determination window period:

TWAP=n=1N(Pt,n=1+Pt,n=2+Pt,N)/NTWAP= ∑_{n=1}^N(P_{t,n=1}+P_{t,n=2}+⋯P_{t,N})/N
