Simple example below to help better understand the rules of xKINE contract.
- 1.On 1st Apr, John locks 100 KINE, he will get 100 xKINE as initially the KINE/xKINE ratio is set at 1.00.
- 2.On 8th Apr, Kine exchange grants 10 KINE to KINE/xKINE contract, now KINE/xKINE ratio changes to 1.10.
- 3.On 9th Apr, Mark locks 110 KINE, he will get 100 xKINE with the KINE/xKINE ratio at 1.1. The xKINE contract now locks 220 KINE and issues 200 xKINE.
- 4.On 15th Apr, Kine Exchange grants 30 KINE to xKINE contract, the KINE/xKINE ratio changes to (220+30):200, or 1.25.
- 5.On 15th Apr, John decides to unlock his KINE. As he holds 100 xKINE, he can withdraw 125 KINE at the ratio of 1.25. Meanwhile, 2% of the withdraw amount will be reserved in the xKINE contract. Effectively, John will receive 125*(1-2%) = 122.5 KINE on withdrawal.
