What is Bancor (BNT)?
Bancor is a software developed to incentivize users to lock up their cryptocurrency assets in pools, where in exchange for doing so, they get a share of the fees which are paid when they are bought and sold by other traders. It facilitates the operation of an automated market maker (AMM) which is a mechanism designed to provide liquidity to markets, without requiring a financial institution to manage it. AMMs such as Bancor aims to make cryptocurrency asset markets liquid by offering incentives for users to create and maintain the pools of these assets.

What makes Bancor (BNT) unique?
Whenever a trade is made on Bancor, the tokens are converted into BNT. The liquidity providers which deposited these assets generate a return from their funds as a percentage of the fees which have been paid by the traders. Bancor is built to provide this on both EOSIO as well as Ethereum. The BNT token is the hub that connects all other tokens together. There is also USDB which is the stable version of BNT and is an alternative resource currency on the Bancor Network. The BNT tokens are used as the intermediary currency whenever a token gets traded.
