- KOIN is a unique token issued and managed by Koindex. Just by holding it, users can receive a share of exchange revenues commensurate with the amount held. Also, unlike other cryptos, the trading method of KOIN is characterized by the fact it will have a trading price range.
- User cases for KOIN: are a) Financial Asset (Trading Crypto pair) b) f or receiving revenue distributions from Koindex c) reward mode trading fee payouts
- The initial issued amount of KOIN is zero. KOIN is generated through three channels: trading bonuses, unfreezing mechanism, and the CX community.
*Mining coins are returned to mining users as a trading bonus through a “trading mining” mechanism.
**The unfreezing mechanism is KOIN unfrozen at a ratio of 1.5 to 1 based on mining production volume, and is distributed according to the ratio of the KOIN Fund, R&D Expenses, Security Development, Marketing, and Partners composition.
- The value (pricing) of KOIN shall be determined through KOIN Index. The KOIN index is a rules based index designed to track Bitcoin’s price without exposing many risks to its volatility by creating a virtual portfolio including Bitcoin, Gold, and USD. It serves as a tool for passive investors who are going to invest in the growing Bitcoin market but want to hedge the volatility ri sk.
- For achieving its objectives, the KOIN Index has been designed with 4 main characteristics: Presents risk adjusted performance of Bitcoin, replicable, transparent and stabilized against a market crash
- The starting weights of the index are arbitrary set on June 8 th, 2020 as the following: Bitcoin 20%, Gold 40%, USD 40%
- The weights are recalculated at the following events:
- a. On the 1st day of every month
- b. When one of the constituent’s closing price has increased or decreased by 10% from the previous day’s closing price
- This is designed to adjust the volatility of the index according to market trends.
- Koindex will have the right anytime to change, revise or terminate rules and criteria behind the index.
- If KOIN secures its own price at a certain time, it can be moved off from the index.
- The total amount of issued KOINS will be on par with the fund management, trading mining, and market making requirements. Koindex will disclose the total amount of issued KOINs on a daily basis
KOIN Index: Computation
The index is computed using as follows: If the weights of the constituents (Bitcoin, Gold, USD) at the last reweighting time T0 are w0,w1,w2, the value of the index at time t is given by:
Where P(t) is the price of constituent i at time t
e.g.) Let’s say the source data at T0 (the latest reweighting event) were below:
Prices (Bitcoin, Gold): 7000, 1500
Weights (Bitcoin, Gold, USD): 0.2, 0.4, 0.4
Index value: 100
then, the Bitcoin price has increased to 10000 and the gold price has decreased to 1400 at t. The index value at t would be calculated as the following:
I(t)= (0.2 * 10000 / 7000) + (0.4 * 1400 / 1500) + (0.4 * 1) = 1.059
1.059 * 100 = 105.9
- By investing in KOIN, a user can earn a bonus at a rate higher than the Turkish Interest Rate.
- Under Pledge Plans, a bonus will be added upon the amount invested in KOIN under the Pledge Plans and returned to the user proporationally over the 30 90 day investment period.
- Under the Staking Plan, cancellation is possible at anytime with the user receiving their KOIN back the following day.
Auto Reinvest Plans
- When the option to enable the Auto Revinvest Plan is made, the user’s KOIN will automatically be reinvested in the plan currently chosen. KOIN that is proportionally returned from the 30/90 Pledge will be reinvested once the KOIN amount exceeds $50. Reinvestment will not occur until the returned amount exceeds $50. If a user enables this Auto Reinvest Plan option, they will receive an additional bonus over the Pledge Plans. This is not available for the Staking Plan
- Just holding KOIN will allow users to receive up to 60% of Koindex’s daily exchange fee revenue, depending on the amount of KOIN’s held. Users can also get more rewards by investing KOIN in Investment P lans.
Trade Mining Rules
- Trade mining is a revolutionary system that provides both income and capital gains. Trade mining is based on returns from tra nsa ction fees. Transaction fees are the fees incurred by digital asset pair transactions either by buying or selling. These fees are returne d b y Koindex fractionally or entirely to the user in the form of “KOIN”.
- If the user holds these generated/mined coins in their account over time, they will earn distributions on a daily basis Also if the user Pledges their mined coins to be kept in the account for 30/90 days then they will earn a higher return rate.
Mining Calculation Formula: Quantity produced (KOIN) from Trade Mining = (Qi × Pi ÷ PKOIN) × α
Explanation of the above formula:・Qi = amount of paid fees ・Pi = price when fees are paid
PKOIN = The price of KOIN when paying the commission fee ・ α ％％= User’s Distribution Ratio
- There are 3 main benefits to mining KOIN: a) Up to 10 0% of exchange revenue can be returned according to a user’s KOIN holdings b) Sell KOIN on Koindex at a profit c) Users can receive commission fees by using the Reward Mode.
- The digital assets returned will be the digital asset obtained from transaction fees, such as BTC, USDT, ETH, etc.. The retur n r ate of returns varies according to the pledge period or staking conducted of KOIN.
- There are four plans that can be selected for Trade Mining. (Pledge Plan 90, Pledge Plan 30, Staking Plan, Standard). Under Pledge Plans, user funds are returned pro rata based on the amount of days pledged.
- Koindex has established “revenue sharing plans” and has proposed asset management strategies that meets user needs. Specifica lly , KOIN can be held for a certain period of time like a time deposit. The longer this period is, the higher the distribution rate is. These plans are recommended for those who do not plan to sell immediately and want to enjoy daily distributions. The normal distribution rate is 5 0% (standard plan, just by holding KOIN), but by pledging or staking, users can receive a higher distribution rate. Distribution s a re returned to users in major digital assets, including BTC. By combining the four courses of mining plans, it is possible to generate even hig her profits.
Auto Mining Rules
- Auto Mining is a feature enabling hassle free acquisition of KOIN.
- Self trading is repeated with two selected digital assets where KOIN is earned in place of incurring trade fees.
- There are hourly mining limits by selecting either Pledge Plan, Staking Plan, or Standard, all having different limits.
The normal distribution rate is 20% (standard plan, just by holding KOIN), but by pledging or staking, users can receive a higher distribution rate. Distributions are returned to users in major cryptocurrencies, including BTC. By combining the four courses of mining plans, it is possible to generate even higher profits.
User distribution formula
Distribution Amount = Exchange revenue /total issued KOIN x Distribution Ratio x amount held under each plan
