Sell Tax Structure in MAXX Finance

In MAXX Finance, we have implemented an adjustable tax for all sell transactions, initially set at 2%. This tax is divided as follows: 1% of the MAXX tokens sold are immediately burned, reinforcing our deflationary strategy. The remaining 1% is allocated to the MAXX Finance development fund. This fund is unique as it is not used for leveraged yield-generating activities but rather for the growth and development of MAXX Finance, including the creation of DApps and new projects.

Buy Tax Framework

Similarly, a 2% adjustable tax is applied to all buy transactions. Of this, 1% is directly burned to support deflationary measures. The other 1% is transferred to the MAXX Vault. Funds from the Vault are then used to purchase the other token in the liquidity pair (e.g., MATIC), which remains in the Vault. MAXX Vault

Governance and Tax Cap

The tax rates for both buying and selling are governed by the DAO network, allowing the community to vote on adjustments within a range of 0-5%. Both buy and sell taxes are hard-capped at a maximum of 5% in the contract. MAXX Vault
The implementation of buy and sell taxes in MAXX Finance serves several key purposes:
  1. 1.
    Encourages Holding Over Trading: These taxes discourage frequent trading and promote long-term holding of MAXX tokens. This strategy aligns with the goal of fostering a stable and growth-oriented community, as frequent trading can lead to loss of funds.
  2. 2.
    Supports Protocol Development: The taxes collected are crucial for the development and expansion of the MAXX Finance ecosystem. They provide the necessary funding for new projects, DApps, and improvements within the platform.
  3. 3.
    Entry Fee for New Buyers: The buy tax acts as an entry fee for new participants, ensuring that incoming funds contribute to the protocol's growth.
  4. 4.
    Rewarding Commitment: By staking MAXX tokens, users can earn additional tokens, incentivizing participation and engagement within the ecosystem.
  5. 5.
    Common Practice in DeFi Projects: Trade taxes are a common mechanism in many DeFi projects, used to balance the ecosystem, fund development, and encourage a more committed user base.
These taxes are strategically designed to align the interests of users with the long-term success and sustainability of MAXX Finance. Contrary to many DeFi protocols, the vault is not used for leveraged yield-generating strategies but is used to grow and develop MAXX Finance with Dapps and new projects.
