What to consider when buying API3

Investing in a cryptocurrency asset carries significant risks, particularly if it’s a new cryptocurrency like API3 which was only launched in November 2020. Here are some of the important factors to consider before investing in API3:
  • Supply. The initial circulating supply was 20 million tokens with the remaining tokens vested for up to 3 years for the founders. The initial total supply was 100 million tokens, however it is designed so that there are inflationary rewards for stakers.
  • Staking. API3 token holders can stake API3 to earn weekly rewards. The staking pool meanwhile serves as collateral for on-chain insurance.
  • Governance. As an API3 token holder you can participate in the governance of API3. It provides economic incentive for voting as stakers receive a portion of dAPI revenue and their staked tokens are collateral for on-chain insurance.
  • Payments. API3 charges a subscription fee for dApps using the dAPI network and data providers receive payment in API3 tokens. By staking API3 tokens tokenholders will receive a portion of the dAPI revenue.
  • Inflation & deflation. The API3 token has an inflationary and a deflationary mechanic. Staking will generate inflationary rewards. But it is also designed so the API3 DAO burns its revenue causing deflation.
Disclaimer: Cryptocurrencies, including API3, are speculative, complex and involve significant risks – they are highly volatile and sensitive to secondary activity. Performance is unpredictable and past performance of API3 is no guarantee of future performance. Consider your own circumstances, and obtain your own advice, before relying on this information.
