CHR token utility

Act as platform currency

Payment of hosting fees

CHR is used by dapps to pay hosting fees, thus compensating the nodes.

Ecosystem staking

CHR is used to make sure that providers have a stake in the Chromia ecosystem thus offsetting incentives to collude.

System-wide purposes

Chromia has several special Chroma token accounts that are used for system-wide purposes, such as ERC20 token pegging, system node compensation pool, development pool, etc.
