Token Description & Project Background
Cryptex is a DAO specializing in bringing traditional assets to the decentralized world. It aims to provide an innovative opportunity for investors to gain exposure to the entire cryptocurrency in a decentralized and trust minimized protocol through a synthetic asset called TCAP.
At any given time, TCAP’s price represents the total market capitalization of all crypto assets – divided by 10 billion. In other words, if the current market capitalization of all digital assets is $500 billion, TCAP will be valued at $50. According to the project’s, Cryptex leverages a suite of Chainlink-powered oracles that actively scour leading data providers like CoinGeckoin order to update TCAP’s price on-chain in a fast and efficient manner.
TCAP is backed by two, ERC-20 assets, ETH and DAI which are deposited into a series of Ethereum-based smart contracts referred to as Vaults. As TCAP is overcollateralized, these deposits must be at least 200% of the token’s current value. Should the value of this collateral drop below a sufficient level, the vault can be subject to liquidation. Per, TCAP tokens can be redeemed for the underlying collateral at any time. Those who choose to discard of their tokens are charged a burn fee by the protocol for doing so.
Once in circulation, TCAP tokens can be stored, traded or used to fund a range of Uniswap based liquidity pools. Those who deposit TCAP into a protocol-supported pool earn TCAP LP tokens which can be staked on Cryptex for CTX-based rewards.
Cyrptex is currently managed as a decentralized autonomous organization (DAO) governed by CTX holders. Within this framework, CTX holders can vote directly on proposed changes to the protocol of delegate their stake to a representative who casts votes on their behalf.
CTX is the network’s governance token that powers and secures the protocol. Holders can vote on protocol upgrades. CTX is also provided as a reward to users who mint new TCAP tokens.
The CTX token launched in April 2021.
CTX was founded by Joe Sticco (CEO), Preston Van Loon (Blockchain Lead) and Thomas Matzner (Brand Lead).
