Introduction. Altered State Machine (ASM) is a platform for the ownership, training and trading of AI agents via NFTs, which can be used across gaming worlds and financial applications. The NFT collections include 10,000 Genesis Brains and 40,000 AIFA All-Stars. Brains are the containers that house machine-learning AI models for the AI agents. AIFA is a soon-to-be-released online soccer game with players who can compete with one another. For more details, we covered ASM in a previous report (for Delphi Pro members) and hosted the founders on The Delphi Podcast (available to all).
This week is a major milestone for ASM with the launch of the $ASTO token. Practically, this means:
The total supply of $ASTO is 2.384 billion and the only circulating supply of $ASTO at the start of the Discovery Auction will be from the Genesis Brain airdrop. The utility of $ASTO includes:
Genesis Brains & All-Stars. Genesis brains will be airdropped 3% of the total $ASTO supply (~71.5M $ASTO). This means each brain will be entitled to 7,152 $ASTO.
It was also revealed in Twitter Spaces this week that AIFA All-Stars will receive 2% of the total $ASTO (~46.6M $ASTO). However, this will happen at a later date (not announced yet) via a reverse claim mechanism, where owners would receive more $ASTO the longer they wait before claiming. There may also be a rarity mechanic involved that affects claim amounts. Several All-Stars are trading for less than 0.2E on the secondary market.
Discovery Auction. This is a 7-day long event that establishes the starting price of $ASTO and also generates deep liquidity for the token. It is open to the public, even if you do not own any brains or ASM NFTs. Unlike typical LBPs, all the $ASTO in the discovery auction is provided by genesis brains holders and not the team, thus it is not a fundraising mechanism. Refer to this FAQ for details.
The discovery auction is a modified version of the Liquidity Bootstrap Auction (LBA) designed by our team at Delphi Labs.

Paying For Delphi Subscription With UST Yields
Our team at Delphi is excited to introduce our newest payment option
Recurring crypto payments are a pain point for subscription companies like us
Finally, we can allow users to leverage the power of DeFi and pay for our research with their $UST yield
