# Example Calculation

To make this logic more real, let’s look at an example calculation:

Pool supply:

\$2000 equivalent

Pool demand:

10 x Starters \$200 worth of USDC buy-in

1 x Starter \$100 worth of USDC buy-in

1 x Investor \$500 worth of USDC buy-in

1 x Investor \$100 worth of USDC buy-in

Total pool demand:

\$2700 equivalent

Pool tiers staking cost relation:

This calculation gets the ratio of the different tiers, based on the minimal threshold for each tier:

\$IONs 2000/ \$IONs 6000 = 1/3

Investors supply-demand gap:

Here we assess the demand gap for each tier, without allocation of a difference in tier tokens.

\$600 — \$600 x (\$2000/\$2700) = \$155.6

By applying the pool tiers staking cost relation with the supply-demand gap, we can calculate the tier-adjusted supply-demand gap.

\$155.6 — (\$155.6 x 600 000/(200 000 + 600 000)) = \$38.9

Investor tier gets:

\$600 — \$38.9 = \$561.1

Investor 1 gets: 500 * \$561.1/600 = \$467.6 worth of tokens and \$32.4 worth of USDC back to his account.

Investor 2 gets: 100 * \$561.1/600 = \$93.5 worth of token and \$6.5 worth of USDC back to his account.

The rest of the pool (\$1438.1) is distributed between the remaining tiers. The only remaining tier is Starter, so the remaining supply is divided between them equally.

Starters 1–10 get: 200*\$1438.1/2100 = \$137.0 worth of token and \$63.0 worth of USDC.

Starter 11 gets: 100*\$1438.1/2100 = \$68.5 worth of token and \$31.5 worth of USDC.
