About Cronos (CRO)

Cronos is a blockchain launched in November 2021 by the cryptocurrency exchange It is an Ethereum-compatible blockchain built with the Cosmos Software Development Kit (SDK), an open-source framework for creating Proof of Stake (PoS) and Proof of Authority (PoA) blockchains.

This enables Cronos to be compatible with the Ethereum and Cosmos blockchains, making it simple for Ethereum and Cosmos developers and users to migrate their projects or assets to Cronos and vice versa. Additionally, Cronos uses the Inter-Blockchain Communication Protocol (IBC), which allows it to communicate with other blockchains that use the same protocol.

Cronos was built to be scalable and interoperable without sacrificing usability. It also intends to communicate with other blockchains and enable users to transfer assets between Cronos and other blockchains in real-time. In other words, a Cronos-compatible blockchain user, such as Ethereum, can transfer tokens and other assets, such as non-fungible tokens (NFTs), from Ethereum to Cronos. They can also use their Cronos tokens on Ethereum.

Cronos' native ERC-20 token, CRO, is required for network transactions. It is also the network's governance token and can be used to vote on essential proposals that will shape Cronos' future. Furthermore, holding specific amounts of CRO tokens can qualify traders for different fee tiers when trading on

CRO price and tokenomics

Cronos has a maximum circulating supply of 30 billion CRO tokens. All the Cronos tokens that will ever be in circulation were created along with the launch of the Cronos blockchain. This means no new Cronos tokens are being created, and no more can be mined. At the time of writing, there are currently 25 billion CRO tokens in circulation. This represents approximately 83% of the total supply.

While the total supply of CRO tokens was initially intended to be 100 billion tokens, the Cronos team conducted one of the largest token burns in blockchain history ahead of the launch of the Cronos mainnet. In an attempt to further decentralize the Cronos blockchain, 59.6 billion CRO tokens were burnt on February 22, 2021. In addition, another 10.4 billion CRO tokens were locked into a monthly vesting contract. As these tokens are released, they will be automatically burnt.

These sustained token burns aimed to address centralization and supply issues. The CRO token burn brought the circulating supply from a mere 24% to over 80%, considerably diluting the token supply and allocation. This helps to decentralize the CRO token and reduce the supply. This newfound token scarcity caused a surge in CRO price and renewed the token's demand.
