Kyber Network is an on-chain liquidity protocol that aggregates liquidity from various sources to provide secure and instant transactions on any decentralized application (DApp). The main goal of Kyber Network is to enable DApps, decentralized exchanges (DEXs) and other users easy access to a liquidity pool that provides the best rates.
All transactions on Kyber are on-chain, which means they can be easily verified using any Ethereum block explorer. Projects can build on top of Kyber to utilize all the services offered by the protocol, such as the instant settlement of tokens, liquidity aggregation, and a customizable business model.
Kyber looks to solve the liquidity issue in the decentralized finance (DeFi) industry by allowing developers to build products and services without having to worry about liquidity.
The Kyber Network Crystal (KNC) token is a utility token that is the "glue that connects different stakeholders in Kyber's ecosystem." KNC holders can stake their tokens in the KyberDAO to help govern the platform — and earn staking rewards in Ethereum (ETH). They also determine the rewards that liquidity providers (LPs) receive on the platform.
