What is Kyber Network? (KNC)

The Beginner’s Guide


Ang Kyber Network ay isa sa lumalaking bilang ng DeFi mga cryptocurrency na naghahangad na bumuo ng isang kahalili sa tradisyonal na palitan kung saan ang mga user ay maaaring bumili at magbenta ng mga crypto asset.

Nangangahulugan ito na ang Kyber Network ay naghahanap upang magbigay ng parehong serbisyo tulad mismo ng Kraken, maliban sa halip na pinamamahalaan ng isang solong kumpanya, ang palitan nito ay pinalalakas ng code, isang ipinamamahaging network ng mga software user at ng Ethereum blockchain

Patungo sa layuning iyon, ang pangkat ng Kyber ay nagtayo ng tatlong mga tool na idinisenyo upang tumakbo sa Ethereum: isang protocol para sa desentralisadong palitan, isang application programming interface (API) para sa mga conversion ng asset at ang cryptocurrency ng KNC, na tumutulong sa mga user na pamahalaan ang kanilang pagpapanatili at pagpapatakbo. 

Dahil sa pagsasama-sama, ang mga tool na ito ay nakatulong na sa paglunsad ng KyberSwap, isang desentralisadong aplikasyon ng palitan na nagpapahintulot sa mga user na ipagpalit ang mga crypto assets nang walang isang central order book o operator.

Sa halip, ang mga rate ng conversion para sa mga magagamit na mga asset ay ibinuo nang direkta sa protokol, na nangangahulugang magbabayad lamang ng mga fee ang mga user ng ether (ETH) para sa pag-execute ng mga trade, na nagtatapos sa Ethereum.

Ang cryptocurrency ng Kyber Network, ang Kyber Network Crystal (KNC) ay ginagamit upang magbayad para sa mga pangunahing operasyon sa labas ng palitan na ito, kasama ang pagboto sa mga update sa mga patakaran ng software.

Simula noongJuly 2020 hanggang sa kasalukuyan, ang Kyber Network ay nakakita ng higit sa $ 1 bilyon sa kabuuang dami mula sa higit sa 1 milyong mga user transaction. Ang mga user na naghahangad na manatiling konektado sa kasalukuyang katayuan sa pag-unlad ng Kyber Network ay maaaring sundin ang opisyal nitong blog para sa mga napapanahong detalye.

Sino gumawa ng Kyber Network?

Kyber Network was founded by Loi Luu, Victor Tran and Yaron Velner in 2017.

At the time, the Kyber team raised 200,000 ETH (approximately $50 million) in an initial coin offering of its KNC cryptocurrency. During the sale, a total supply of 226 million KNC were created, most of which were sold to buyers and investors.

In October 2017, the Kyber Network burned over 10 million KNC tokens, bringing the maximum supply down to about 215 million KNC.

The software went live on the Ethereum blockchain in February 2018. 

Paano gumagana ang Kyber Network?


To understand how Kyber Network works, it’s important to review the network components that, together, help provide an exchange service. 

These include: 

  • Smart Contracts – Provide the infrastructure for tokens to be traded and exchanged.
  • Reserves – Offer liquidity to the network.
  • Takers - Execute trades and take liquidity out of the network. (Examples include Dapps, vendors, and wallets.)

Kyber’s Reserve Model

The Kyber Network relies on reserves to provide liquidity. 

This means that when a user initiates a trade, the network conducts a search for available reserves to find the best available rate being offered by takers. 

There are three main types of reserves that provide takers the ability to convert tokens instantaneously for the most competitive price: 

  • Price Feed Reserves (PFR) – PFRs act as the protocol’s alternative to market makers, using price feeds to calculate conversion rates and store this data in smart contracts. Reserves then refer takers to the smart contract to calculate token conversion rates.
  • Automated Price Reserves (APR) – APRs serve liquidity to the network and rely on smart contracts to provide rates for available tokens. All APR transactions are done on the Kyber Network blockchain, and smart contracts are used to store tokens and swap them with other users.
  • Bridge Reserves – Bridge Reserves are responsible for deepening liquidity by accessing other decentralized exchanges (e.g. Uniswap). 

In the past, Kyber Network reserves were required to hold KNC to pay for network fees. However, an upgrade to the network removed that feature, removing friction for the reserves. 

Kyber Network collects fees in ETH, with a portion of them going to these reserves, who collect them based on the amount of liquidity they provide. 
 


Why does KNC have value?

The KNC cryptocurrency plays a key role in maintaining and operating the Kyber Network.

By staking KNC, users gain the ability to vote on network upgrades and policies (fee models and rates, as an example), with each vote being proportional to the amount of KNC they stake. 

Users can also delegate their tokens to other validators, allocating votes to them while still earning a portion of the block reward. 

Of note, users who stake KNC will receive rewards in the form of ETH for their contributions.

Investors should note that network fees paid for in KNC will be burned over time in an effort to permanently reduce the cryptocurrency’s supply. Thus, while the initial supply was a little over 215 million KNC, this may gradually decrease, making KNC more valuable over time.


Bakit kailangan gamitin ang KNC?

Users may find the Kyber Network appealing based on its mission to provide an alternative to more traditional centralized exchange platforms. 

To date, there are a variety of wallets that have already integrated the Kyber Network to allow users to trade cryptocurrencies within their ecosystem. 

Furthermore, a few projects have even incorporated Kyber’s API to facilitate transactions. Some examples include the popular virtual reality platform, Decentraland, and Edcon, an Ethereum development conference.

Investors may also seek to buy KNC and add it to their portfolio should they believe in the future role of decentralized exchanges in expanding and broadening access to crypto assets.
