Bancor is a software with the intention of incentivizing users to lock crypto assets in pools, in exchange for a share of the fees that are paid when they are bought as well as sold by traders.

In other words, it attempts to facilitate the operation of an Automated Market Maker (AMM), which is a mechanism that is designed to provide liquidity to markets, without requiring a financial institution to manage it.

AMMs like Bancor aim to make crypto-asset markets liquid by offering incentives for users to create as well as maintain pools of the assets.

Here’s how it works, whenever a trade is made on the platform, the tokens are converted into BNT. The liquidity providers that deposited the assets, generate a return from their funds as a percentage of the fees that have been paid by the traders. Bancor is built to provide this on EOSIO and Ethereum.

The BNT Token Explained

At the heart of this network, you have the BNT token, which is a hub that connects all of the other tokens together. USDB is the stable version of BNT and is an alternative resource currency on the Bancor Network.

The BTN tokens are used as this intermediary currency when a token is traded.

Features of Bancor

In order to automate this AMM service, Bancor incentivizes users to deposit their assets into pools.

Every pool consists of a pair of tokens, as well as a reserve of BNT cryptocurrency. When a user ends up depositing coins within a pool, they will in turn receive a new token. This token is what is known as a pool token, which allows the user to retrieve their original amount which the user has locked in the protocol.

The Bancor Network Smart Contracts manage the conversion flow between the tokens, as well as the administrative access to different liquidity pools.

Every liquidity pool on the Bancor Network aggregates the liquidity for a discrete set of tokens on the network, and anyone can provide liquidity to a pool and receive conversion fees from trades that pass through the pool itself. The liquidity providers can receive tokens that are proportional to their share of assets in the pool.

Every pool though is managed by a ConverterBase contract, and the liquidity providers can create new instances of the converter contract to create new liquidity pools.
