General Details

Ticker: $GRONA
Chain: Cronos chain (CRC-20)
The Golden Crona token (most commonly known by its ticker symbol, $GRONA) was designed specifically to reward CronaSwap’s most loyal community members. GRONA enables holders not only participate in governance, but to also take advantage of other valuable benefits including passive farming, exclusive pools, and access to special IFO allocations.
GRONA is an extension of our CRONA tokenomics; it's a derivative token of CRONA which offers more benefits at a higher premium.

How Do I Get GRONA?

GRONA can only be acquired by converting CRONA on the Golden Crona page.
NOTE: Users incur a 28% burn fee in addition to a 2% reflect fee, resulting in a 30% reduction in tokens when going from CRONA to GRONA. This is beneficial to the CronaSwap ecosystem, as this decrease in tokens materially helps offset the inflation of CRONA, reducing the circulating supply of CRONA.
As a result of the burn and reflect fees, users receive 0.7 GRONA for every 1 CRONA converted.
To reward GRONA users for their commitment, GRONA is valued at 1.389x compared to CRONA within the CronaSwap ecosystem (Staking Pools & IFOs).
NOTE: You only realize the 28% loss of the burn fee when you leave GRONA by converting it back to CRONA.
In traditional finance, this would be considered an "unrealized loss". It only becomes material once you convert GRONA back to CRONA, as your tokens are valued as if they were still CRONA while inside the CronaSwap ecosystem.

What Can I Do With GRONA?

GRONA can only be acquired with CRONA on the Golden CRONA page. CronaSwap offers users several different options to take advantage of their GRONA holdings:
1) Vote on CronaSwap DAO governance proposals or create a community proposal based on the amount of GRONA tokens held*
2) Stake GRONA in special GRONA-only Staking Pools to earn CRONA, or other partner tokens
3) Participate in special GRONA-only allocations in Initial Dex Offerings that are separate from the standard CRO allocations
4) Engage in passive farming by earning a proportional share of a 2% reflect fee generated each time GRONA is transferred*
*NOTE: These options only apply to GRONA held in wallets, not staked in Staking Pools.

Reflect Fee

GRONA is a reflect token, with a 2% transfer fee. This means that any time CRONA is moved from wallet to wallet, staked into a Staking Pool, or otherwise transferred, 2% of the amount transferred is distributed proportionally to all other users who hold GRONA in their wallet (i.e., not staked in Staking Pools).

GRONA Treasury & Returning to CRONA

GRONA is ultimately backed 1:1 by CRONA, and can always be exchanged for CRONA. Since GRONA is valued at 1.389x CRONA within the CronaSwap ecosystem, users realize the difference in value between GRONA and CRONA only when converting GRONA back to CRONA.
Sold GRONA is returned to the treasury fund and ultimately available for purchase from the next person that wants GRONA. As a user, you get 0.98 CRONA per GRONA when you return to CRONA, after accounting for the 2% reflect fee. New GRONA is minted only if there is no existing supply in the treasury to fulfill sell requests.
NOTE: CronaSwap does not control or own the treasury supply! Each of the above mechanics is dictated exclusively by smart contracts. GRONA does not trade openly on any secondary markets, and cannot be purchased from any exchange other than CronaSwap. CronaSwap will never open a GRONA Yield Farm, as it is a derivative token of CRONA, which is fully liquid and tradable.
