Frequently Asked Questions

How is TCAP pegged to the price of total crypto market cap?

TCAP uses Chainlink oracles which enables Cryptex to aggregate multiple data points from seven of the top crypto data providers in the world and brings that data on chain using Ethereum smart contract. Using a trust minimized oracle framework allows TCAP to minimize trust of Cryptex and ultimately enables us to create better trustless financial products.

What is TCAP backed by?

Each TCAP is collateralized by more than 200% corresponding amount of ETH or DAI.

TCAP includes EVERY coin and token?

TCAP includes every coin and token supported by the following 9 oracles and 5 data providers https://data.chain.link/mcap-usd

Is TCAP decentralized?

TCAP uses Guardian Keys to pause deposits and minting in case of a bug to protect users, the rest of the protocol is managed by a timelock contract controled by CTX governance token. We expect to further decentralize TCAP as time goes on and burn the Guardian Keys.

Is TCAP live yet?

TCAP is live! You can use TCAP by visiting app.cryptex.finance. We recommend you give our testnet a spin first to get familiar with the protocol by visiting https://medium.com/cryptexfinance/how-to-use-tcap-on-testnet-a0cef1c1f19c
