What is KuCoin Shares (KCS)?

KuCoin Shares (KCS) is a token created by the KuCoin exchange. This particular currency of KuCoin was launched in August 2017 along with the KuCoin Exchange. Built on the Ethereum Blockchain platform according to the ERC20 standard.

You will get profit from the success of the exchange, and the more you hold the KCS, the more dividends you will hold. The number of KCS holders will be calculated when distributing different currencies.

KuCoin Shares has many different uses: participating in buying IEO on KuCoin Spotlight, making transaction fees, using other utility products and services on KuCoin.

KuCoin will buy back the amount of KCS in the market, equal to 20% of the quarterly profit until the total supply is 100 million KCS.

The difference of KuCoin Shares

The liquidity of KCS is quite large because KCS has created a separate market, meaning that it can use KCS to buy and sell other coins. Thanks to that, anytime you need it, you can freely buy and sell KCS. In addition, you will receive a 50% discount when using KCS to buy and sell other coins.

The maximum total supply of KuCoin Shares is 200,000,000 KCS but then KuCoin will gradually buy 100 million KCS and then cancel and leave only 100 million KCS. Since then, the value of KCS has only grown and become more valuable. Similar to Binance Coin (BNB), the price of KCS coin will probably increase even more in the future.
