The T token (T), will be used to stake, manage the network, and provide governance. It will serve a similar function in terms work performed. Holders will stake their tokens to help secure the network and get rewards.

Both NuCypher's Keep and NuCypher communities will disable their token's inflation with the launch of T. This is likely to happen towards the end of 2018. The network will not reward NU and KEEP holders. NU and KEEP holders can use a smart contract ("the kiosk") to convert their NU or KEEP to T. Token holders who still have NU vesting may use an adapter to replace the kiosk.

Holders of tokens who have their tokens held on an exchange such as Kraken or Coinbase should be aware that there is no guarantee that they will be able swap their tokens with a central exchange. NuCypher will not list T through any exchange. Keep will. Here are instructions for token holders on how to custody their assets.

Like the NuCypher and Keep tokens, T can be used as a work token. It will be distributed according to the number of services a node operator provides. The token will have an inflationary component, as it will reward those who earn both fees and newly minted T.

The community voted on the economics for T. This sets a steady yield rate and aims to achieve a minimum of 10% APY. The token's issuance would fluctuate between 5 and 10%. More rewards will be available for node operators who offer more services or opt-in to them.
