Crypto.com chain is a decentralized blockchain developed by Crypto.com. This is a crypto exchange and trading platform. The main aim of the Crypto.com Chain is to give people more control of their money and protect their online identities as they are involved with crypto payments. To do this, they launched Crypto.com coin(CRO), which is their native coin.
As the CRO blockchain provides a platform for users to access payments, trading, and CRO financial solutions, the coin acts as the currency for transactions in the blockchain. The CRO owners earn more coins for processing transactions in the blockchain. When using the Crypto.com app to make payments, they get a 20% cashback for every payment to merchants and 10% cashback for purchasing gift cards.
CRO is a non- mineable token. Crytpo.com limited the total number of coins in circulation to be 100 billion. They released the coins to have five different functions. These are:
- Thirty billion coins were to serve as secondary distribution. Since Nov 2018, Crypto.com has been releasing this in daily batches. This will continue till Nov 2023.
- Twenty billion coins will serve as a capital reserve. Crypto. Com has frozen this batch till Nov 2022.
- Twenty billion tokens will serve as Network Long-Term Incentives. This batch will start circulating in Nov 2022.
- Twenty billion coins will serve as the Ecosystem grants
- Ten billion coins will go to Community development projects.
At the time of writing, CRO is trading at $0.5751 at a market volume of $2,217,631,900 and a market cap of $14,519,712,570.
