Real examples of use
There is no direct real-life use case available but Komodo coin KMD can be used as payment for different services i.e. security or otherwise can be used to earn more 5% APR. But for earning APR user needs to have at least 10KMD in the wallet.
While discussing komodo we can never miss SuperNET. SuperNET is an ecosystem which is aimed to give service to other blockchain projects. In 2014 the ecosystem has already successfully completed its ICO and so far, has built a number of the products i.e. SuperNET lite client, Multi Gateway. SuperNET introduces Komodo as its official currency. So, Komodo is an important part to complete the whole picture of SuperNET ecosystem.
Komodo is familiarized because of Zcash but has already attracted a significant number of users. It has declared a fixed supply of KMB which of 200 million coins with 100 million pre-mined, 90 million for investors and remaining 10 for development purposes. In comparison to other peer-to-peer cryptocurrencies, Komodo is faster and more reliable.
Komodo is rated as one of the most reliable crypto projects by the Chinese government because of its security checks. Komodo’s security mechanism works on dPoW which notarize the nodes to complete technical work.
Komodo hasn’t officially listed any big in their investors' list but more of users who have invested to get services and currently has a market cap of $ 176.60M and ROI of 327 %.
