Conditions to receive free 1INCH tokens
To claim tokens, one must have made at least one trade before 15 September 2020. Or he must have made at least 4 trades or must have a total trade value of $20.
With the release of 1INCH (governance token), the network is launching a new instant governance feature. This provides a remedy to the inertia problem of existing DeFi governance models. Moreover, with the instant governance feature, the governance models will be able to adapt to protocol changes quickly. Basically, it will allow the community to vote for specific changes to the protocol using a decentralized autonomous organization (DAO) model. In such a model, every user vote matters.
Moreover, the token will find utility in all current and future protocols within the network.
