What is $wDREAM?

Users can choose to wrap their DREAM tokens which converts it to standardised ERC20 tokens (wDREAM). Instead of your token amount increasing, the value of tokens itself increases. This allows you to gain the rewards you would normally gain from Staking, without having an increasing amount of tokens in your portfolio. Users can also unwrap their wDREAM tokens to receive DREAM at any time. The price of wDREAM will increase as if it were rebasing, without needing to rebase.

Why is this relevant?

In many countries, there is a clear distinction between Income Tax and Capital Gains Tax.
  • Income Tax applies to regular income, usually received for work done or investments.
  • Capital Gains Tax applies to money gained from (for example) the sale of an asset like a house or investment.
In many cases, Capital Gains Tax is lower than Income Tax, and so it would be diligent to make it as clear as possible to the taxation authorities of your country/jurisdiction that you are under capital gains tax.
