Recently, Bankera has announced an updated version of its token. The upgraded token will follow the ERC-20 standard, opposed to ERC-223 used by the original Bankera token (BNK-223). Starting next Tuesday (22nd February 2022), the upgraded Bankera token (BNK-20) will be supported at SpectroCoin.
This upgrade will enable Bankera tokens to be traded on DEXes (decentralized exchanges) and to be used in other DeFi (decentralized finance) applications. You can read more about the upgraded Bankera token (BNK-20) in Bankera’s blog post about it here.
SpectroCoin will support an exchange between upgraded (BNK-20) and original (BNK-223) Bankera tokens at a rate of 1:1000, which means that for 1000 original Bankera tokens (BNK-223), you will be able to get 1 upgraded Bankera token (BNK-20). Because of the new, lower hard cap of upgraded Bankera tokens (BNK-20) of 10,000,000.
If you do not exchange your original Bankera tokens (BNK-223) for upgraded (BNK-20) ones, nothing will change for you. You will continue to receive your weekly revenue as of now. However, the weekly revenue part, attributed to the upgraded Bankera tokens (BNK-20), will be used to buy them back in the market. Later, Bankera will burn these to reduce the supply of Bankera tokens.
As currently, you will be able to use Bankera tokens to get lower interest rates for crypto loans at SpectroCoin, to pay for Bankera business account opening at a better rate as well, and to enjoy free trading at SpectroCoin Pro exchange for pairs involving Bankera token.
