What is 1INCH token

The 1INCH token serves multiple purposes within the 1INCH ecosystem, including governance, staking, and as a utility token for certain functions. 

Participants can vote on various protocol parameters, such as transaction fees, liquidity pool configurations, and other crucial network aspects.

The token also incentivizes liquidity providers and traders on the platform by offering the potential for rewards in exchange for network participation. 

Additionally, users can stake their 1INCH tokens to engage in Fusion mode, where they are delegated to specific entities called "resolvers" who help process swap transactions. Through staking, users can earn rewards in the form of additional 1INCH coins. 

In turn, those seeking opportunities to earn crypto rewards can explore CEX.IO’s staking program. Much like 1INCH staking, eligible participants can utilize a broader variety of tokens to stake that best suits their individual crypto needs.

Disclaimer: CEX.IO doesn't currently support 1INCH staking. However, our crypto staking service offers a wide range of cryptocurrencies with different earning rates and lockup periods.

Recognizing the inefficiencies and manual effort involved in searching for favorable exchange rates, they envisioned a platform that could automatically scan multiple DEXs to identify the most advantageous trading opportunities. 

Their innovation aimed to streamline the user experience by aggregating liquidity and optimizing trades to help users locate potential pathways without the hassle of manual comparison.
