There are five different quota expanders that, when activated, will permanently increase your token quotas. Each type of expander has a different level of power: Smashed Expander (good), Standard Expander (great), Chunky Expander (fantastic), Expando-Chad (unbelievable) and Bro Kwon’s Mastermind (holy Satoshi, this is awesome). You can activate as many expanders as you want—each one simply adds additional quota to your token quotas.
For Shell v1 LPs, quota was based on the percent of total TVL you contributed over the life cycle of the pool. The actual formula is a bit more complicated, but that’s the general framework. This formula was applied to a snapshot of Shell v1 from its launch until 11:59 pm Hawaii Time on Thursday, September 1, 2022. No LP activity after the end of that snapshot affected quota allocation.
For toucan holders, we’ve made it simple. For every toucan in your wallet at the moment we take our toucan snapshot, you will receive roughly $5 USD of quota for each of the current and near-future tokens on Shell v2. If Alice holds 50 toucans, for example, her initial quota for each pool and wrapped token will be around $250 USD. This toucan snapshot was taken at noon Pacific Time on Friday, September 9th, 2022. Your initial quota from toucan ownership will be allotted based on however many toucans are held in your wallet at that exact moment in time.
