Decentralized exchanges (DEX) are unregulated and run using autonomous pieces of code known as smart contracts. To use a DEX you must interact with the blockchain directly, which is not recommended for novice users. Please learn about decentralized exchanges first if you're unfamiliar.

Is BTC Standard Hashrate Token a good investment?

Hashrate tokens are relatively new to the cryptocurrency industry and, therefore, risks should be evaluated thoroughly. Below are some factors to keep in mind before purchasing BTCST:
  • Supply. At the time of writing, there is a circulating supply of approximately 8.4 million tokens. The maximum supply is capped at 15 million. The project has not experienced any private or public sales. BTCST tokens are only issued when eligible miners standardise and tokenise their BTC hash rate.
  • Governance. The platform is governed in the form of a Decentralized Autonomous Organization (DAO). This means it is a democratic, community-driven platform where token holders and miners have the authority to make decisions regarding development. The community can collectively decide on issues related to the project and participate in proposals.
  • Community Redenomination Vote. The community of BTCST token holders initiated a proposal in February 2021 to vote for an adjustment to the issuance of tokens. A proposal was made to increase the maximum supply to 15 million. The overall value and market cap of the token remained the same. After the vote, all BTCST holdings increased by a ratio of 1:10. This means each BTCST token now represents 0.01TH/s, instead of the original 0.1TH/s. The redenomination enables more investor participation and meets the strong demand for the BTCST token.
