History

Pre-Launch

On February 17, 2021, the Instadapp Team published "Introducing DeFi Smart Layer" outlining the DeFi Smart Layer (DSL). DSL emerged after Instadapp accomplished $1 billion in TVL, 18k accounts, and $3B in flash loan volume. DSL was a necessary feature to drive further adoption to Layer 2 scaling solutions due to seamless migration tools and composability. To ensure Instadapp kept the Ethereum and DeFi ethos a governance token was necessary to help fund ecosystem growth, implement fee models, approve L2 migrations, assign guardians, infuse flash loan capabilities, approve account upgrades, and whitelist new protocols.

Launch

On June 16, 2021 Instadapp published "Introducing INST" ushering in a new era for the Instadapp community. In the 4 months prior, Instadapp saw 37k new accounts created, $4 billion in additional TVL, and accounted for over 50% of all flash loan volume on Ethereum.

🎯
Follow Up: After three months the community set forth a proposal for the DAO to reclaim any unclaimed tokens. On 9/25/2021 around 8m tokens were reclaimed by the DAO for further growth and expansion.
