Setting up a vesting schedule with TokenOps is straightforward and can be tailored to meet specific project needs:

1. Pick a Smart Contract:

Choose from the range of vesting options available at TokenOps, including time-lock contracts for simple schedules or streams for continuous distribution.

2. Design Your Vesting Schedule:

After selecting the smart contract that fits your project's requirements, you’ll design the vesting schedule. Determine the total duration, whether a cliff period is required, and the frequency of distributions.

3. Launch and Manage:

Deploy your vesting schedule to activate the non-custodial smart contract. After deployment, the contract operates independently, giving you full control and ownership of your tokens. Monitor the process through the intuitive dashboard to ensure everything is on track.

4. Stay Informed:

TokenOps's alert system keeps you updated on vesting events. This feature is invaluable for staying informed and ensuring the vesting schedule is followed precisely.

Token streaming and vesting protocols can be strategically combined to provide a more flexible and controlled distribution of tokens. This integration allows for a hybrid approach where tokens can be vested according to a predetermined schedule and simultaneously streamed to recipients in real time.

For example, integrating a tool like Sablier changes the way your token vesting schedule is perceived. Instead of waiting for specific dates to receive token payments, recipients can see their holdings increase every second, providing a fluid and transparent experience.

Typically, streaming protocols are not-upgradeable, which means no one can pause the contracts, reverse transactions, or change the users' streams in any way. However, newer solutions are introducing advanced features, such as the ability to start or stop the flow of vested tokens. For example, a project can remove vesting from one stakeholder and reassign it to another, facilitating the smooth onboarding and offboarding of team members or investors right through the contract.

At TokenOps, we provide all the options and integrations with streaming protocols that suit your needs, making it easy to launch and manage your vesting schedule. Whether you're adjusting stakeholder allocations or ensuring a secure token distribution, we have the tools you need to succeed.

How Can Token Streaming and Vesting Protocols Work Together?



Token streaming and vesting protocols each play distinct roles in token management. Streaming protocols allow for the real-time, continuous transfer of assets on a per-second basis, reducing transaction complications and providing more autonomy and flexibility in recurring operations. Alternatively, vesting protocols enable the creation of customizable smart contracts that lock tokens and release them according to a set schedule, ensuring long-term commitment from team members and investors. This approach helps stabilize market value by preventing sudden sell-offs and is set by customizable smart contracts that can be adapted to various distribution needs.
