Crypterium burns 1M CRPT tokens as the first step towards cutting ⅓ of total supply

Following up on the announcement regarding burning CRPT, Crypterium confirms that more than 1m tokens have been successfully collected and destroyed during the first burning on July 11.

Meanwhile, Crypterium confirms it plans to reduce the CRPT total supply by 30% during the next 24 months and will be constantly increasing the burning volume.

CRPT is Crypterium’s native token. This cryptographic digital asset was developed on top of the Ethereum blockchain to ensure stability and scalability for all crypto-to-fiat services provided by Crypterium Wallet, Crypterium Card, as well as recently launched B2B solutions.

Every time transactions are executed using Crypterium services, a 0.5% gas fee in CRPT tokens is charged and subsequently burned. Since the total supply of CRPT is capped at 98 million tokens, the ongoing burning guarantees a positive effect on token economics such as the supply-demand ratio. The more transactions that are processed, the faster CRPT supply is reduced. Since 2018, the company has burned more than 1.6 million tokens.

Burning more, burning faster

As business performance increases, so does the burning effect. During 2020, Crypterium burned 400,000 CRPT, which was a significant increase over the previous year, but 2021 has seen huge growth. This year almost 2M additional tokens have been burnt already, and we are only 6 months into the year.

This chart represents the burning volume starting from 2019 when the monthly rate was around 10 000 tokens. Close observers will notice that token burning is growing at a steady rate. In May alone it was 150,000. This means that by the end of 2021, at least 2.3m tokens will be burnt, and if we take that same trajectory forward, within 2 years it could reach as much as 30% of the total supply. 

While the burning rate has been so far linked to transaction volume, Crypterium’s founders along with token sale team and advisers are already speeding up the process by redeeming and subsequently burning tokens from the open market. The CRPT circulating supply stands at 83 million of which 18m are temporarily locked in deposit accounts, so it will not take too many burned tokens to have a major impact on supply.  One thing that remains unclear, the price of the CRPT token. If transactions increase, burning increases, supply falls. If traditional supply-demand economics play their role, then the price of the token moves upwards. This can only be increased by events such as token redemption burning.

Crypterium speeds up the burning process, aiming to remove close to 30% of CRPT tokens from circulation. According to the firm’s COO, Austin Kimm, the first step towards burning ⅓ of total supply has already been made and the move to redeem tokens from the open market will be a boost to Crypterium’s ecosystem. 

We are pleased to report that the first step towards burning 30% of total CRPT is finished. We have successfully burned more than 1M tokens on July 11. We are confident that increasing CRPT burning speed will have a positive impact on our ecosystem, and we will continue to increase the burning volume further said Austin Kimm, COO at Crypterium.

To speed the burning process, Crypterium has also invited all crypto communities to participate. The firm has debuted an initiative to enable CRPT token holders to send their tokens to a dedicated address to contribute to the burning process. More than 1m crpt tokens have been collected so far and already burned, and that’s just a beginning  

Promising financials ahead

In the past year, Crypterium has doubled its user base to more than 500,000 users from 170+ countries. The company registered a 10X growth of its monthly gross profit in 2020 with a turnover of €150.000.000.

Moving forward, Crypterium is forecasting to hit a €200.000.000 monthly cash flow within the next two years. Such a sum would represent a burn volume of €1.000.000 worth of CRPT tokens, a significant increase from current levels.

Let the burning begin.
