What is ALPINE?
Named after the F1® racing team, ALPINE was first launched on the Binance Launchpad in February 2022 as the third Fan Token Launchpad project by Binance. The total token supply of ALPINE is 40 million, with 10% of the supply sold during the Binance Launchpad Sale.
ALPINE Fan Tokens are native BEP-20 tokens issued on the BNB Chain (formerly BSC). This means that the BEP-20 ALPINE tokens will be able to connect with other BSC-based decentralized exchanges (DEX) and decentralized applications (dApps). As a BEP-20 token, ALPINE enables users to enjoy low transaction fees and a 3-second block time.
Unlike NFTs, all Binance Fan tokens, including ALPINE, are fungible. This means that they can be exchanged for something else of the same value. ALPINE was designed to be fungible so that fans can exchange them for merchandise and experiences. However, ALPINE can also be exchanged for exclusive NFTs.
What can ALPINE tokens do?
ALPINE token holders can participate in fan engagement-related voting sessions on the Binance Fan Token platform. These voting sessions allow users to influence certain decisions of the team they support. Previous voting sessions include voting for the 2022 Alpine Esports jersey worn by drivers like Nicolas Longuet and voting for the Binance Alpine Esports livery and circuit used on the team’s simulator.
Holders have also been able to collect the exclusive Slipstream into the Future Mystery Box available in exchange for 3 ALPINE. This Mystery Box included a series of posters to collect, allowing holders to later stake in the NFT PowerStation for exclusive rewards.
ALPINE token holders also have access to other forms of engagement with the BWT Alpine F1® Team on the Binance Fan Token platform, including receiving signed merchandise, meet-and-greet sessions with the team drivers, and other fan-related events.
Apart from its engagement and voting opportunities, holders can also stake ALPINE in the NFT PowerStation. Through staking, they’ll be able to access digital collectibles and fan rewards.
In the future, ALPINE token holders will also be able to access multiple gamification features on the Binance Fan Token platform. A donation feature, where ALPINE token holders can directly donate to the team in exchange for a Proof-of-Loyalty badge, is also in the pipeline.
ALPINE can be accessed by both the BWT Alpine F1® Team fan base and the larger Binance user base. As such, ALPINE can be withdrawn from Binance like other BEP-20 tokens.
