How Many SwissBorg (CHSB) Coins Are There in Circulation?
During the initial coin offering (ICO), SwissBorg minted the maximum supply of 1,000,000,000 CHSB tokens. All of these tokens have been released, which means that the total circulation of SwissBorg tokens is also 1,000,000,000.
About 38% of all CHBS tokens were allocated to community sales to the public. Another 20% of the tokens were distributed among team members as rewards for creating the platform. Close to 10% of the total supply was directed towards strategic investors, while another 15% was dedicated to the second round of funding for the project. Finally, SwissBorg distributed close to 14% of all CHBS tokens to experienced investors, who had already stated interest in the project.
According to the SwissBorg website's (CHSB overview]) page, there are now fewer than 200,000,000 CHSB left in circulating supply, with the majority being locked by app users for Premium benefits, or in yield-earning wallets.
How Is the SwissBorg Network Secured?
SwissBorg and the CHSB tokens are Ethereum-based. As an ERC-20 token, CHSB will be secured by the proof-of-stake (PoS) consensus, as Ethereum itself transitions to it.
Unlike the proof-of-work (PoW) consensus employed by Bitcoin, PoS relies on majority holders to mine new tokens. This consensus method is significantly more versatile compared to PoW, as it introduces the process of staking to the blockchain layer.
In addition, PoS is becoming more popular among developers and users alike because it is more energy conscious. While PoW requires a lot of computing power for mining, PoS relies on static coin holdings and gives more mining power to users with a more significant stake.
