What is 1inch?
1INCH is the native token of the 1INCH decentralized exchange aggregation platform, which pools the liquidity of multiple decentralized exchanges in order to give users the best rates and liquidity from a single interface. The matching engine gives users the option to either choose the best exchange rate for a given trading-pair or to opt for the lowest gas fees possible. The 1INCH token is used for governance of the 1INCH ecosystem, which also includes Mooniswap, and has been progressively airdropped to users of 1INCH, Mooniswap and even Uniswap. The value of the token is closely associated with the use of 1INCH and Mooniswap, as it permits holders to propose and vote on changes to both platforms.

What to consider when buying 1inch
Cryptocurrencies are highly speculative assets that come with a range of risks. Additionally, buyers of 1INCH tokens may want to consider the following:
- Copycats: Because 1INCH is open-source, potential competitors can copy the code-base and create their own version of 1INCH with very little effort. This could lead to a loss in market share for 1INCH, which could affect demand for the token as a result. That being said, almost all decentralized exchanges are open source, so the risk is not unique to 1INCH.
- Governance: 1INCH is managed by a Decentralized Autonomous Organization (DAO), which means that token holders have control over various aspects of the platform, including fees, liquidity provider rewards and even rewards for participating in the act of governance itself. Keep in mind that while DAOs are democratic, voting power is determined by the number of tokens a voting address holds. For instance, at the time of writing (March 2021), a single address held 18% of the voting power.
- Token supply: 1INCH launched on December 26 2020, distributing 6% of the total token supply to eligible addresses, with a further 0.5% over the following two weeks. The remaining tokens are controlled by the DAO and distributed in various ways, with the maximum supply of tokens sitting at 1.5 billion, although this could be changed in the future. At the time of writing, the DAO plans to distribute tokens via the following mechanisms such as rewards, incentives, wages, payments and development.
