The calculation method for determining the price of personal tokens will be determined according to the following joint curve Token Bonding Curves (TBC) formed by the algorithm. The more liquidity, the more TAL is required to mint new tokens. Of course, Talent Protocol will be more powerful to incentivize early investors. Specifically, TBC is a smart contract (equivalent to a portfolio) for each talent token. It acts as an AMM. When a supporter purchases talent tokens with fiat currency or other cryptocurrency, it will be automatically converted to TAL and locked in the smart contract. In exchange for talent tokens, at the same time, the price of the talent token is increased. At the time of sale, the TAL is unlocked from the smart contract and the talent token is destroyed at the same time.
