What is KuCoin


KuCoin is a crypto exchange and pays Kucoin Shares (KCS) holders daily dividend from their income on trading fees.

Standard trading fees are 0.1% for maker and taker, but the more KCS tokens you hold the lesser it becomes all the way down to 0.0125% maker fee and 0.03% taker fee

KuCoin Payout Structure

50% of all trading fees are distributed as dividend to KCS holders in KCS tokens.

Dividend is calculated based on the KCS amount held on the KuCoin platform at 00:00 on a daily basis and normally distributed at 02:00 UTC (UTC + 8) every day. You have to claim your dividend afterwards it’s not automatic (anymore). KCS holders with at least 6 KCSs will obtain this trading fee bonus.

Each quarter there is also a buy back and burn of KCS tokens. At least 10% of the net profit will be applied to this. KuCoin will continue to do so until 100 million (of the original 200 million) are destroyed.

We do not have all KuCoin data. Historical payment information has been lost due to KuCoin site updates.Daily volume source is CMC and might not be off from the actual volume due to timing of my snapshots and or accuracy of CMC. Over time the CMC numbers seems to corresponds with a avg trading fee just below 0.1%.
KuCoin Yields

What does a 13.86% yield mean? Simple you need 100 / 13.86 = 7 years and 3 months with the same dividend to earn your investement back if you buy the tokens now with current price. The higher the yield the faster you earn back your investement.
