# CSM Minting Rate

• Lock CSM to receive a share of platform fees as stablecoin.
• Vote gauge weights.
• Vote DAO Proposals

### Emission Formula

• CSM will be minted depends on emission formula.
• CSM's mint ratio per second ' _csmPerSecond ' will be determined by the Goat Ratio and the amount of locked CSM tokens in veCSM contract and the CSM lock durations.
$\text{Goat Ratio} = 50\ -\left(b\log\left(ax^{2}+1\right)+cx\right)$
c = -1.077 , b = 14 , a = 245, x = time(year)
The U-total formula as follows:
$U_{total} = \displaystyle\sum_{i=1}^n \frac{{User_i \medspace Locked \medspace CSM \medspace Tokens}}{{User_i \medspace CSM \medspace Lock \medspace Durations }}$
csmPerSecond formula as follows:
$\text{csmPerSecond} = \text{Goat Ratio} *U_{total}$
Example Mint Rate calculation:
$\text{exampleMintRatio}= GoatRatio *(\frac{user_{1}}{duration_1} + \frac{user_{2}}{duration_2} + \frac{user_{3}}{duration_3} + .... \frac{user_{n}}{duration_n})$
Goat Ratio starts from 50(%) on the first day, reduces 4(%) day-by-day until the 4th year and continues at a constant 4(%) for the years after the 4th year.
The distribution of CSM emission allocations is arranged as follows for the platform liquidity bootstrap;
