The Protocol

Built on fundamental economic principles, Centric is a cutting-edge dual-token digital currency and decentralized blockchain platform. Because it self-regulates token supply to keep up with continuing changes in demand, Centric’s dual-token architecture encourages adoption and stabilizes over time.

Dual-Token Economy

Centric’s dual-token strategy consists of two tokens: Centric Rise (CNR) and Centric Swap (CNS). CNS is like a typical cryptocurrency and trades at the market price, however CNR is distinct in that it trades at a fixed price and generates hourly growth. Centric Rise and Centric Swap can both be redeemed at any moment in exchange for one another.

The price of Centric Swap needs to be at $1 USD on the open market in order for network consensus to take place. The indicated market value of Centric Rise is the same as the market capitalization of Centric Swap at $1 USD.

What is Centric Swap (CNS)

On cryptocurrency exchanges, Centric Swap is freely traded at a market price. Through interoperability with existing currency ecosystems, it adds liquidity to the central economy. Centric Rise is exchanged on demand for Centric Swap, which is then burned. The Centric Swap smart contract controls the Centric Swap token.


The Centric Rise smart contract governs the Centric Protocol. Being immutable, the Centric Rise smart contract cannot be altered.


Both CNR and CNS are built on the Binance Smart Chian (BSC) blockchain.
