What is NuCypher?

NU is the native token of the NuCypher network, along with being the utility token of the ecosystem. NuCypher offers a decentralised encryption, access control and key management system (KMS) for blockchain networks. Holders of the NU token get the right to run a node on the network. Users can only run a node by staying online accessible to users and staking a particular amount of native tokens on the network as a collateral. The token model of NU is designed in a way to offer low liquidity so that users would stake tokens for longer terms, rather than using it as a speculative trading asset. NuCypher was founded by MacLane Wilkison and Michael Egorov in 2015, although they did not tokenize it’s data encryption layer till December 2017, when they launched NU as a Simple Agreement for Future Tokens (SAFT) selling 31% of the initial token supply for nearly $4.4 million in what’s also known as a token pre-sale.In October 2019, NuCypher sold another 8% of it’s token supply through another SAFT to raise $10.7 million.
