Operating Deposit

The Operating Deposit is implemented to ensure investors are participating in the greater TC tokennomics while the Weekly Upkeep remains affordable to everyone.
The current Operating Deposit is 10:1 cash-to-TC. If you deposit 10 USDC, you must also deposit 1 TC to be held as an Operating Deposit. If you deposit 690 USDC, you must also deposit 69 TC. The Operating Deposit will not be used towards paying the bot's Weekly Upkeep, nor will it accrue TCC farm rewards.
If you already have TC on-deposit in the bot and make a cash-only deposit, the Operating Deposit will automatically be subtracted from your existing TC deposits. As an example: You deposit 420 TC into the bot and no cash. Your Operating Deposit is currently 0 TC and you will accrue Farm Rewards on the full 420 TC. You then deposit 30 USDC and no TC. Your Operating Deposit has now become 3 TC and only the remaining 417 TC will earn you Farm Rewards. That 417 TC will also be subject to the Weekly Fee. If you're confused, don't worry, all of the above is automatically managed for you. Our future bot website will show you a breakdown of everything line-by-line. It's quite easy: Deposit TC + Deposit Cash to use the bot.
The Operating Deposit is implemented to ensure more prominent investors, such as hedge funds or institutional asset managers, participate in the greater TC tokenomics while concurrently providing the Weekly Upkeep remains affordable to everyone. We want to ensure an average income earner in Pakistan, Finland, Iran, or Chile can all use our DEX Trading Bot. An Operating Deposit in proportion to cash deposits was the best solution to ensuring equity across all users.
When you withdraw, your Operating Deposit is reduced to the percentage of the total cash balance withdrawn. For example, if you deposited 100 USDC and immediately requested a withdrawal of 10 USDC, then 10% of your Operating Deposit will automatically be released, and you will begin earning the TCC farm rewards. Another example is if your current balance is 40 USDC and you request a withdrawal of 8 USDC, 20% of your Operating Deposit will be released. Should you request to withdraw your entire cash balance, your whole TC Operating Deposit will also be removed and may be withdrawn in the same transaction. Or separately. The choice, as always, is yours.
The multi-sig administrators may occasionally adjust the ratio. The ratio only applies to future deposits. As a team, we anticipate the balance to general trend upwards, where less TC per cash is required.
