The Burency ecosystem consists of a fully-insured crypto exchange, a Blockchain Development Center and the Burency Mining farm. Each one of them addresses one of the previously mentioned challenges. The Burency exchange is built for transparency and convenience. It is fully regulated and allows anyone to easily get started with cryptocurrency trading. It is also one of the first exchanges that is fully insured by one of the top insurance providers: Lloyds of London. The exchange will offer traders fiat to crypto gateway as well as a live profit/loss dashboard making it easy to keep track of your trading performance.
Most exchanges store a part of the funds they hold in cold storage and just keep a small portion in hot wallets to ensure liquidity. Burency is aiming to achieve storage in cold wallets and easy access. If they succeed, insured users could store crypto in DMCC storage vault – a third party insured blockchain managed physical vault.
Additionally, Burency is planning to set up their mining operations in relatively cold countries while using renewable energy, mainly hydro-power, to run their operations with a lower ecological footprint. Anyone who is looking for computational power will be able to buy time-slots in the mining facility. To ensure fairness and transparency, the transaction will be conducted via smart contracts.
The third and last element in the Burency ecosystem is the Blockchain Development centre which tackles the current lack of understanding when it comes to Blockchain technology. The Burency Blockchain Development Center will become a research hub in the UAE region and will support businesses in understanding and implementing DLT.
What ties all these elements together is the native token of the Burency ecosystem: BUY. Buy is an ERC-20 token and allows users to trade, request services or bid on mining slots. In total 700 Million BUY tokens have been created. In the future, Burency is considering to buy-back and burn tokens with the revenue generated.
