# Token Security

POWR does not have an elastic supply, or rebase mechanism. The POWR contract does not have permissions that grant administrators mint/burn capabilities; it is a standard implementation of ERC20 with no upgradeability meaning tokens can never be frozen.

The POWR token supply is fixed at 1,000,000,000, of which about half (500,000,000) are in current circulation. The addresses with the highest concentration of POWR tokens are predominantly the Power Ledger treasury, exchange wallets, and founding team wallets. All POWR tokens have fully vested since the ICO in October 2017.

POWR holdings are well distributed across 51,000+ addresses.

  • All-time high: $2.01 (4 Jan 2018)
  • All-time low: $0.03 (13 March 2020)
  • 0.5 billion tokens in circulation
  • 1,000,000,000 maximum supply.
  • The current market capitalization is $127M.
  • The token is available on major exchanges, including Binance, Bithumb, Uniswap 3 pools ($1.34M pool POWR/ETH), Bittrex, Huobi, SushiSwap.
  • Uniswap has 3 pools with the largest pool in excess of $1.34M. Bancor pool could rival that in size.

Benefits for Bancor

Power Ledger has an active community of POWR token holders who will be joining Bancor, some for the first time, and bringing in additional trading volume, marketing the existence of the pool. Power Ledger is supporting this pool to become one of the biggest ones in terms of liquidity and will be contributing 1,000,000 POWR straight away, and potentially more overtime.


I very much like this.


1m POWR + equal value BNT would be about half the liquidity depth of the Uniswap pool. The pool will need to attract Liquidity Providers to double the size. Are there any plans to boost liquidity mining rewards to reach this goal?

Also is there a default conversion fee for all new whitelisted pools or can this proposal suggest a fee rate? A lower conversion fee would attract more trade. The LP reward compensates initially, until the trade volume builds.

The BNT pool can attract current POWR LPs that want to be more capital efficient by freeing up half of their capital to LP on Bancor where we co-invest with them. New LPs might also be encourage to provide liquidity to Bancor knowing that they don’t have to sell half of their stack to LP somewhere else and can therefore go long on their token. There is also the benefit of IL protections that other DEXes don’t provide.

The default conversion fee is typically set at .2% to match the Uniswap V2 and V3 pool since swapping from eth will incur a an extra .1% swap fee on our end (2 swaps essentially).
