Governance Model

The governance model powering the Ajira Pay Finance platform.

Token Architecture

Ajira Pay Finance has 3 tokens in it's ecosystem.

  1. $pAJP

  2. $AJP

  3. $veAJP


VotingEscrow AJP($veAJP) is the non-transferable token that is used as the unit of Ajira Pay Finance voting power.

It is received by staking or locking $AJP tokens. The veAJP balance decays linearly as the remaining time until the staked or locked AJP unlock decreases.


Prior to the AJP launch, the pre Ajira Pay Finance token (preAJP) is used in community incentives and reward programs which will become redeemable on a 1:1 ratio for $AJP after a successful launch.

Currently, as you create streams and token vesting schedules, our platform's revenue model is such that we deduct 0.5% of the asset being deposited, this gives you an equal amount of $pAJP prior to official $AJP launch.

For more details on fees and rewards, please refer to the Fees and Rewardssection.

Get started early, accumulate $pAJP and stand a chance to be one of our earliest $AJP holders.


AJP is Ajira Pay Finance's native token that will be staked or locked to receive $veAJP to strengthen a holder's voting power and control of Ajira Pay Finance through onchain governance.

It is an Omnichain Fungible Token (OFT) that will live on multiple chains powered by Layerzero and Stargate Finance

Please have a look at the $AJP architecture at the Overview of AJPsection
