Block Trade Exchange Limited (BTX) Fact Sheet

Any capitalised terms are not defined within this Fact Sheet, have the meaning given to them in the Terms of Use which you can view here >>

Qoin is a smart Digital Currency. Its primary function is to be used as payment to participating merchants, i.e. merchants who accept Qoin as payment for real goods and services. For more information on how this happens, refer to Qoin's official website here >>

The purchasing power of a Qoin token within the Qoin ecosystem is the Qoin's 'value'. The value of Qoin is separate from and may be different to the daily buy/sell prices, which represent how much the Qoin tokens can be traded for on BTX.

The Qoin Association is an independent membership organization that has been established in Australia to govern the Qoin Blockchain, the Qoin Reserve, and coordinate the validator nodes. The Association is necessary to initially establish guidance in terms of which specification or protocols to adopt and develop.
