Now let us know how token burn will help the community? Let’s understand this here:-
WRX Burn Schedule and Amount of Token to be Burned
Basically, Coin burn is a process of permanently removing the coins from circulation which will ultimately reduce the total supply.
As per the WazirX whitepaper, WRX Burn will happen every quarter (3-months period) based on the trading volume on its crypto-to-crypto platform. As there was a total supply of 1 Billion WRX token out of which 10% of WRX will be completely destroyed.
This 10% i.e. 100M WRX tokens will be burned in every quarterly burn event until it’s completely destroyed. As already mentioned, based on the total trading volume on WazirX in the recently completed quarter a total of 3,333,333 WRX were burned.
Out of the total 1 Billion WRX tokens here is its allocation:-
|WRX Token (%)||WRX Tokens||Where|
|10%||100,000,000||IEO Public Sale|
|20%||200,000,000||Product & Marketing|
|20%||200,000,000||Partnership & Ecosystem|
Now there might be one question in your mind, how token burn helps the WRX community? So let’s understand this.
How WRX Tokens Burn Helps the Community?
Basically, tokens are burned in order to reduce the existing circulating supply of a token. So if we reduce the token supply periodically the value of the token keeps increasing. By this way, the early holders of WRX will benefit the most from it.
As WazirX burns WRX token based on the trading volume for that particular quarter on its crypto exchange. So if the trading volume on WazirX increases the WRX burned every quarter will also increase.

Traditionally the P2P systems were a type of classified listings from where you have to complete the deal. But in the auto-matching P2P engine the buyer places USDT order and the deal automatically gets matched with a seller.
