It is observed that the current market supply of the token is 1.5 billion, that is around 6% of the total cryptocurrency supply.

According to the exchange, it will use the token as a feature to speed up the decision-making process by providing transparency and efficiency to the community voting.

What governance authority does 1INCH token provide?

The holder of 1INCH token can participate in the voting round on how to set the distribution setting of Spread Surplus. The holders can stake the token to vote for providing their decision on the distribution of the benefit to the exchange side, which occurs when a swap transaction is executed at a price more than the quoted price. It is known that the decision is vital as though the exchanges strive to offer the best price but several times a time difference between the price offered and token mined into the blockchain results in spread surplus.
