The utility of KNC tokens
The Kyber Network Crystal (KNC) token is Kyber Network's ERC-20 utility token. It is a platform for connecting different stakeholders in the Kyber ecosystem. It currently has approximately 198,343,194 KNC tokens in circulation and is live on most major cryptocurrency exchanges such as Cryptocurrency, FireCoin, HBTC, and OKex.
KNC enables token holders to play a key role in determining the incentive system. This helps to build a large stakeholder base, thus ensuring smooth economic activity on the net. A small fee is charged each time a token is exchanged on the net. KNC tokens provide holders with fees and profit sharing for this model, as well as the power to make and vote on other important decisions, thus fulfilling the vision of democratizing the Net.
As time passes and more transactions are executed, more fees will be incurred for pledge rewards and reserve pool rebates, and more KNCs will be destroyed. This will result in a reduced supply of KNC tokens as time passes. KNC holders determine what portion of the net fee will be used as a rebate from the liquidity provider (reserve pool) based on their transaction volume performance.
