ASD is the token that powers the AscendEX ecosystem. The AscendEX app has a crypto exchange, a staking platform and a reward center.
ASD is a staking coin that offers incentives to holders. ASD tokens offer VIP levels and less transaction fees to those who hold them. Additionally, they can be used in investment products for daily rewards, in Point Card for 50% discounted margin interest, and in AscendEX Auction.
The estimated APY from end of May 2022 is over 9% for ASD staking. Transaction fees start at 5000 tokens held.
On top of that, AscendEX offers to their community other blockchain tokens on discount prices. For instance, you could get APE coin or OMI coin in April 2022 at a discount during a short window and then sell it within 24 hours for over 80% profit. You have to buy in bulk, though.
Use ASD tokens to your advantage - there’s plenty of ways to do that. Or just hold onto them and enjoy all the benefits they have to offer.
