The launch date for the Crypto.org Chain has been announced, with a major token burn scheduled today.
Crypto.org Chain Launch Looming
Crypto.org Chain will launch on mainnet on March 25, the Crypto.com team has announced.
The chain has been in development for over two years, previously running two successful testnets. It also ran a Mainnet Dry-Run, dubbed Crossfire, which received over 3,000 validator applications. 275 million transactions were processed during Crossfire.
The blockchain will run a Delegated Proof-of-Stake consensus algorithm, and users can participate in securing the network using Crypto.com’s popular DeFi Wallet.
Crypto.org Chain will support Crypto.org Coin (CRO) as its native currency.
Major Token Burn and Price Spike
70 billion CRO will be burned ahead of the event. Of the 70 billion supply, 59.6 billion tokens will be burned today.
The remaining 10.4 billion is locked inside a smart contract, scheduled to be burned monthly. The burn means CRO’s circulating supply will increase from 24% to over 80%.
The remaining 5.9 billion CRO will be kept for block rewards and ecosystem development, with 5 billion and 0.9 billion allocated respectively.
With the supply burn, the team says, Crypto.org Chain is “100% ready to rock the worlds of payments, DeFi and NFTs.”
