ATH Token

Community-Owned Translational Research Engine

AthenaDAO is a Community-Owned Translational Research Engine that focuses on supporting and incubating women’s health research projects during the initial stages of translational research.

Powered by Smart-Contracts

AthenaDAO is powered by smart contracts on the blockchain. This enhances the efficiency of AthenaDAO and eliminates the reliance on intermediaries and trust.

To Build an Ecosystem of IP in the Women's Health Space

We are building a comprehensive ecosystem, supporting and facilitating the development of effective biotechnology products and services in the women’s health space.

How AthenaDAO operates

How we Operate

Focus on Transparency

Decisions made by $ATH Token holders are voted on-chain and available for review by anyone. This level of transparency enables anyone to readily observe the activities happening within AthenaDAO.

And on Decentralization

Decentralization means not being governed by any singular entity or organization. Instead, it operates under the governance of open-source code. This inherent decentralization fortifies AthenaDAO against potential corruption and censorship threats.

With strong Tokenomics

The AthenaDAO ecosystem relies on $ATH, an utility governance token, which gives holders the right to participate in the DAO.

And an evolving Tech Stack

AthenaDAO collaborates with Molecule on IP-NFTs, a bridge between Intellectual Property and Non-Fungible Tokens. AthenaDAO is also looking at other web3 applications, like zero-knowledge proofs and decentralized data storage.

AthenaDAO tokenomics

The $ATH token holders govern AthenaDAO and vote on topics that include supporting research projects related to women's health, governance policies, and treasury management.

The $ATH grants governance rights to govern the IP held by the DAO. No single token holder owns the IP. Token holders collectively guide the direction of AthenaDAO's initiatives.

$ATH is a capped ERC20 token.

The sustainability loop principle guides $ATH's design, where the value of AthenaDAO's intellectual property grows as research projects produce positive results. Successful commercialization of these projects fuels the growth of AthenaDAO's ecosystem, attracting higher-quality IP, increasing supporting opportunities, and fostering further growth.

Token distribution

Check the dEtailed tokenomics

70% will be kept unminted and held within AthenaDAO's treasury. This strategy is aimed at ensuring the organization's long-term sustainability.


10% for community token holders. This represents the tokens that will be made available at various funding events, with 2% going to our Genesis Auction.


12% for Core, Early Contributors, and allocations for the first 24 months of the DAO. This will ensure that contributors are incentivized to keep growing the AthenaDAO ecosystem.


8% for expert service providers such as (6.9%), providers of the IP-NFT framework, and other future providers.

How to GET ATH Tokens


Get a crypto wallet

To hold ATH and vote on proposals, you will need a crypto wallet that is compatible with the Ethereum blockchain. We recommend using MetaMask.

Tip: Add the Metamask extension to your web browser so you can interact with web-based dapps. 


 Get ETH on Ramp

ATH can only be purchased with another cryptocurrency. Tools like Ramp let you use your credit card to buy ETH, which you can later use to get ATH and pay for network fees.

Tip: You must connect your wallet before transacting on Ramp. Only connect your wallet to sites you trust.


Get ATH on Uniswap

Time to visit Uniswap to get ATH using your ETH. Once you have ATH, you can vote on proposals on Snapshot. And make sure to join us on Discord. You can also check ATH on Coingecko.

Tip: When you transact on the Ethereum chain, you will pay a network fee (‘gas’). Keep a little ETH aside for gas.

What is blockchain technology?

Blockchain technology is a decentralized and distributed digital ledger system. It records transactions across multiple computers in a way that ensures data integrity, transparency, and security. Each record in the blockchain is called a 'block,' and multiple blocks are linked together in a 'chain.

Why is blockchain technology crucial for AthenaDAO?

Blockchain technology provides AthenaDAO with a transparent, tamper-proof, and decentralized platform. It ensures that all governance decisions, token transactions, and project fund allocations are securely recorded and can be audited by any member of the community.

How do incentives work within a blockchain-based system like AthenaDAO?

Incentives in blockchain systems, like AthenaDAO, are mechanisms that encourage participants to act in ways that benefit the overall network. For AthenaDAO, incentives may involve rewarding participants with $ATH tokens for making valuable contributions or decisions that advance women's health research and the overall mission of the DAO.

Why are incentives important in a DAO?

Incentives align the interests of individual participants with the collective goals of the DAO. They motivate and reward active participation, ensuring that the DAO remains dynamic, innovative, and achieves its objectives efficiently.

Can the incentive structure within AthenaDAO change?

As a governance token, $ATH holders have the right to propose and vote on changes, including the incentive structure. This ensures that the DAO can adapt its incentives to best meet its evolving needs and challenges.

How does blockchain ensure the credibility of incentives within AthenaDAO?

Blockchain's transparent and immutable nature means that all incentive-related actions (like token distributions or rewards) are recorded on the ledger. This ensures that any member can audit and verify the authenticity of transactions, enhancing the system's credibility and trust.

I'm new to blockchain. How can I learn more about its role in AthenaDAO?

We regularly host online and offline talks, conferences, and educational events. Join our community channels and attend our sessions to deepen your understanding of blockchain and its impact on our DAO.

What is a capped ERC20 token?

A capped ERC20 token means there's a fixed supply of tokens that will ever be created, ensuring no inflation beyond the predefined limit.

Why were only 30% of tokens allocated during the initial genesis?

30% was strategically allocated to ensure initial distribution among community members, contributors, and service providers. The remaining 70% is reserved for long-term sustainability and strategic allocations.

What is the purpose of the unminted tokens in AthenaDAO's treasury?

The unminted tokens in the treasury serve as a reserve for potential future allocations. AthenaDAO members can decide to issue these tokens to the public, strategic entities, or funders.

What are IP-NFTs?

IP-NFTs form a bridge between Intellectual Property (IP) and cryptocurrency, specifically Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs), empowering scientists to embrace a new source of funding for their research and new means for transacting on their discoveries. By merging legal contracts, such as sponsored research agreements and patent licenses, with Ethereum smart contracts, IP-NFTs introduce a quantum leap in the evolution of scientific agreements.

What is the impact of IP-NFTs?

The impact of IP-NFTs is far-reaching, revolutionizing liquidity in IP markets and instilling a sense of excitement and possibility within the scientific community. These pioneering advancements exemplify how real-world legal rights can be seamlessly digitized, shared, and harnessed for the betterment of scientific progress.

What is a Liquidity Pool?

A liquidity pool refers to a reserve of funds that is locked into a smart contract on a decentralized finance (DeFi) platform. These pools facilitate the trading of assets in a decentralized manner by providing liquidity, which is essential for the functioning of decentralized exchanges (DEXs).

How do LiquiDity Pools work?

In a liquidity pool, users contribute funds in pairs of tokens, typically a base currency and another asset. For example, on a decentralized exchange built on the Ethereum blockchain, a liquidity pool might involve pairing Ether (ETH) with another ERC-20 token, like ATH. The funds provided by users in these pairs are used to fulfill trades on the platform.
When a user wants to trade one asset for another, they interact with the liquidity pool instead of placing an order on a traditional order book. The smart contract automatically executes the trade based on the current ratio of assets in the pool. The users providing liquidity to the pool earn fees from these trades proportional to their share of the pool.
