  • What is Biconomy (BICO)?

    Biconomy is a cross-chain relayer infrastructure and transaction network that enables users to access decentralized applications (dApp) with Web3 benefits. It aims to assist DApp users in avoiding blockchain complexities such as paying gas and switching networks each time they want to perform a transaction or value transfer, making it easier for people to transact in crypto.

    How many BICO coins are there in circulation?

    Biconomy has set a cap on the total number of BICO tokens that can ever be issued, i.e., one billion BICO tokens. 

    BICO tokens will be issued in phases over 48 months. The first token generation occurred on 23 November 2021, when 65.4 million BICO tokens were released. Refer to the number of tokens that will be in circulation at the end of each year:
