What is Cronos (CRO)?

Founded in 2016, Cronos formerly Crypto.com Coin was created with the aim to fast-track the world’s shift to cryptocurrency. They have an inventory of key products that are important to the project. These products consist of: the Crypto.com Wallet & Card App which is a place to buy and sell crypto, the MCO Visa Card, a metal card with no annual fees, and the Cronos Chain, which seemingly facilitates users to pay and be paid in crypto anywhere around the world free of charge. Their headquarters are located in Hong Kong with a team size of over 120 people. 

CRO is the token native to the Cronos Chain. The chain was initially made with the idea of building a network of cryptocurrency projects and enhance merchants’ ability to accept crypto as a form of payment, which has been a major hurdle for those seeking wider cryptocurrency adoption. Cronos Chain (CRC-20) has been described by the project as a “high performing native blockchain solution, which will make the transaction flows between crypto users and merchants accepting crypto seamless, cost-efficient and secure”. There is the potential for Businesses to use Crypto.com pay Checkout and/or Invoice to allow customers to complete checkout and pay for goods and services with cryptocurrencies using the Crypto.com Wallet App. Businesses would receive every single one of their payments within an instant in CRO or stable coins, or in fiat currencies.
