What to consider when buying OntologyCryptocurrencies are volatile and highly complicated, so there are a number of factors you’ll need to consider before buying any crypto coins or tokens. If you’re thinking of purchasing any ONT, make sure to take the following factors into account first:
- Dual tokens. Ontology will use a dual token structure. ONT is currently a NEP-5 token and does not release ONG (Ontology Gas), which will be used to power transactions. However, after the launch of Ontology’s mainnet, users will be able to exchange NEP-5 ONT for ONT on the mainnet, which will also start to release ONG tokens periodically.
- NEO/Onchain/Ontology relationship. Ontology is built on the NEO blockchain and its tokens were airdropped to NEO holders. This close relationship between NEO and Ontology reflects the fact that Onchain, Ontology’s parent company, has close links with the NEO project. However, NEO and Onchain are separate entities.
- Availability. As ONT tokens are still only available on a limited range of exchanges, it’s worth considering whether this current lack of widespread accessibility may have any effect on the level of demand for the tokens.
- Competition. Finally, remember to consider how Ontology stacks up against other similar identity verification projects, for example Civic (CVC), before deciding whether to buy any tokens.
