What is Bancor (BNT)?
Bancor often gets looped into the other various decentralized finance (Defi) platforms out there but it has quite a few unique features making it stand out from the rest. Bancor is software that incentivizes users to lock cryptocurrency assets in exchange pools to then get a reward of the fees paid when traders buy and sell those assets. The main goal of this is to provide liquidity to markets without the tangible need for a financial institution to manage the assets directly.
The underlying token holding everything together and incentivizing the users is BNT. Whenever a trade is executed on the Bancor platform, tokens are converted into BNT first as an intermediate step. Then, the liquidity providers who first deposited the asset get a return in the form of a percentage of fees paid by the traders.
Bancor was created by Guy and Galia Benartzi and backed by large scale investors like Tim Draper from the firm Draper Fisher Jurvetson. Since BNT is essential to manage the trading between pools on Bancor, it’s extremely valuable to the platform and can make a good investment.
