November was another big month, and saw Qredo pass some monumental milestones — including the introduction of our new fee model and the gradual rollout of PowerSwap!
Check out our monthly recap below for all the highlights!
We are proud to be supporting Ankex, a new hybrid exchange offering high-performance derivatives trading from the security of a Qredo Wallet.
Ankex is expected to launch in early 2023 – join the waitlist here.
Recent events have drawn attention to the major security and performance trade-offs investors are forced to accept when trading on either CEXes or DEXes. Ankex addresses this, combining the advantages of a centralized trading venue with the security and control offered by non-custodial, decentralized exchanges.
Ankex users will be able trade from their self-custody wallet, accessing a variety of sophisticated derivative trading options. And, because Qredo wallets sit on Qredo’s own Layer 2 blockchain, Ankex users will be able to verify exchange solvency at any time.
We have now introduced Qredo Service fees.
Qredo Service fees support the continued development of the network and boost the utility of Qredo Token (QRDO).
Paying fees in QRDO unlocks an automatic 15% fee discount for Qredo users, boosting demand for the token and adding new utility. In addition, most of the QRDO used to pay fees will be burned!
Qredo is excited to introduce PowerSwap; a new tool for trading Qredo Tokens (QRDO) with USD Coin (USDC) within Qredo Network — backed by your own governance and the unprecedented security of decentralized custody.
This new tool is currently being rolled out to the most active Qredo users. (Coming to all Qredonians very soon!)
Token burn 🔥
On November 7th, we set light to another 16.8M QRDO, representing approximately the number of tokens that vested in October. This took us past the 100 million QRDO burn milestone.
With news of our most recent burn of 25.4M tokens on December 12th, we marked the fifth month in a row with more QRDO burned than entering circulation.
In total, we've now torched 140M QRDO in 2022, reducing the total supply by 14%!
