CoinPayments is happy to support KuCoin Shares (KCS) payment processing for merchants using the CoinPayments payment gateway.
How Do KuCoin Shares Work?
KuCoin Shares are exactly how they sound. They are shares in the KuCoin exchange platform that reward the holders and provide incentives for people to purchase them. With KuCoin Shares, a member of the exchange can profit from the success of the platform through dividends as well as receiving discounts on trading fees.
The KuCoin shares have been distributed by the company in three phases, with the ultimate plan to sell 200 million coins. Then, once the shares are fully distributed, the company will implement a buyback program using 10% of the net profits of the company each quarter to repurchase the KuCoin shares and burn them until there are 100 million left in the ecosystem.
Further, other programs exist to help allocate KuCoin Shares to the community, including a bonus program. This program uses 50% of trading fees earned by the exchange to buy KCS from the market with the goal of redistribution that is calculated based on the number of KCS a user holds. Users with at least 6 KCS are eligible for the bonus program.
