FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What are the forum rules?
1. No Spam / Advertising / Self-promote in the forums
These forums define spam as unsolicited advertisement for goods, services and/or other websites, or posts with little, or completely unrelated content. Do not spam the forums with links to your site or product, or try to self-promote your website, business or forums, etc.
- Spamming also includes sending private messages to a large number of different users.
- Do not ask for email addresses or phone numbers
- Your account will be banned permanently and your posts will be deleted.
2. Do not post copyright-infringing material
Providing or asking for information on how to illegally obtain copyrighted materials is forbidden.
3. Do not post “offensive” posts, links, or images
Any material which constitutes defamation, harassment, or abuse is strictly prohibited. Material that is sexually or otherwise obscene, racist, or otherwise overly discriminatory is not permitted on these forums. This includes user pictures. Use common sense while posting. This is a website for VTBCommunity Members.
4. Do not cross-post questions
Please refrain from posting the same question in several forums. There is normally one forum that is most suitable in which to post your question.
5. Do not PM users asking for help
Do not send private messages to any users asking for help. If you need help, make a new thread in the appropriate forum then the whole community can help and benefit.
6. Remain respectful of other members at all times
All posts should be professional and courteous. You have every right to disagree with your fellow community members and explain your perspective.
However, you are not free to attack, degrade, insult, or otherwise belittle them or the quality of this community. It does not matter what title or power you hold in these forums, you are expected to obey this rule.
General Posting Guidelines
We figured this was necessary because a lot of people come in and post threads without thinking, and without realizing that there is no possible way they could get help because of the way they posted the question. Here are some general guidelines.
1. Please use search first
There is a pretty good chance that unless you have some really odd or unique problem that has been addressed on our forum before, please use the forum’s search feature first to see if there are already some good threads on the subject. It’s easy to search – just click the “Search” button at the top right of the page.
2. Be descriptive
Please post a descriptive topic name! Give a short summary of your problem in the subject.
(Don’t use attention-getting subjects, they don’t get attention and only annoy people).
Here’s a great example of a topic subject you should not post:
“Help me, Hello, Very urgent, I have a question”
Generally, anything similar to those is unacceptable. Just post your problem.
Here is a good example of a way to post a question:
“How to calculate the sensitivity of net annual operating cash flows”
“What is the best wallet to use for a new VTB setup?”
Remember when people help you, they are doing you a favor. Be patient, help people out by posting good descriptions of what you need help with.
General Forum Questions
Am I allowed more than one account?
No, there is no reason why you should have more than one account at VTB Forum. If you are banned from the forums, please do not create a new account. If you continue to create new accounts after you have been banned, your IP address will be blocked from the forums.
What happens if I break a rule?
If you break a rule, then you will either be warned or banned. A ban on your user account may either be temporary or permanent. The administrators and moderators also have the right to edit, delete, move or close any thread or post as they see necessary, without prior warning.
What happens if I see a thread/post which has broken a rule?
Please report the thread/post to the moderators or admin.

- Altruistic tokenomics: Intentional economic actions generated through the creation and use of tokens designed to enhance the welfare of others in the absence of reward.
- Asset Class: All VTBCommunity assets share the same value comparator (e.g., gold). Asset family: All VTBCommunity assets share the same exchange medium (e.g., ETH).
- Cross-chain / ledger agnostic: Like Meta-asset, cross-chain is not specific to any particular ledger.
- Dex: Decentralized P2P exchange.
- Economic incentives: The rules and mechanics to reward or penalize specific behaviors in a network.
- Fiat Currency: Classical debt-based currency, such as US Dollars, Euros, or British Pounds.
- Game theory: The study of mathematical models of strategic interaction among rational decision-makers.

- Mass adoption: The retail market’s adoption of cryptocurrency or digital assets.

- Rules: Business logic is replicated throughout the different ledgers and represents a protocol.
- Stable Token: Like a commodity-backed currency, its value can be tied to multiple assets. Some stable tokens are backed by gold, silver, or even the US dollar. Since the US dollar is not as volatile as any ordinary cryptocurrency, it offers some measure of stability.

- Universal Value Index: The averaged value of all VTBCommunity assets.
- Value Comparator: The value of a VTBCommunity asset is measured using a real-world value comparator, such as fiat currency (e.g., USD). A fiat (e.g., Euro) or commodity (e.g., gold) comparator evaluates the asset. The conversion rate is calculated using the value comparator vs. the native token (e.g., Ether) value.
