Breaking News's CRO Doubles On Sudden Massive Burn News

The price of CRO, the native token of Chain, doubled in a few hours as said it will burn CRO 70bn as they're preparing for the CRO Chain Mainnet launch on March 25.

At the time of writing (11:50 UTC), CRO trades at USD 0.267 and is up by 89% in a day and 207% in a week.

The major cryptoasset-powered debit card, trading, and lending services firm said that CRO 59.6bn (USD 16bn) will be burned today.

"10.4 billion is currently locked in a smart contract and will be burned monthly, as it gets unlocked. This will increase the circulating supply of CRO from current 24% to over 80%," they added.

According to them, out of the remaining CRO 5.9bn, CRO 5bn will be allocated to mainnet block rewards for Chain validators and delegators which helps secure the network, and 0.9 billion CRO will be allocated to Particle B for Chain ecosystem development.

Particle B is a startup accelerator dedicated to incubating projects built on blockchains, including Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH), and the Chain.

"We’ve long believed that the world needs a fully decentralized, open-source, public chain with high speed and low fees. Use cases driving mass crypto adoption through payments, DeFi and NFTs all need this critically important infrastructure," the company said.

In a separate blog post, the company said that the mainnet will be launched as the Chain with CRO as its native currency.

According to them, Chain is a public, open-source and permissionless blockchain - a decentralized network designed to be a public good that helps drive mass adoption of blockchain technology
