WRX is WazirX’s native utility token. It is programmed to serve as the backbone of the entire WazirX ecosystem. The token’s circulation and issuance is on Binance Chain, Binance’s native blockchain.
With a total supply of 1 billion, WRX tokens make for a compelling use case. WazirX users can leverage WRX to avail a 50 percent discount on trading fees. However, discounts will follow a halving model just like bitcoin over a period of 4 years:
Year 1: 50% trading fee discount
Year 2: 25% trading fee discount
Year 3: 12.5% trading fee discount
Year 4: 6.25% trading fee discount
Along with the above, WRX will come in handy for paying listing fees for tokens on WazirX, voting in favor/against the listing of projects, payment of fees on margin trades. Users can earn WRX through mining, P2P trading, and airdrops.
How to Unlock WRX Tokens?
You receive WRX when you sign up on Wazir. Or your friend signs up using your referral code. When your friend signs up using your referral code, you get 25 WRX tokens.
These you can unlock only when you or your friend make a transaction worth 100 USDT. Currently this scheme is not in action since 28th January 2020. WazirX might resume it in the future.
You can also unlock more WRX by extensively trading on WazirX. The more the numbers of trades (specifically in the USDT, BTC, and INR markets), the more WRX coins you stand to earn. Your WRX earnings will be calculated based on the volume of your daily trades.
