The WRX Utility token is the backbone of the WazirX ecosystem, the fastest-growing crypto exchange in India. The token has been issued and is circulated over the Binance Chain, the native blockchain of the Binance crypto exchange. WRX tokens have a limited supply of 1 billion, 10% of which would be burned in the future to strengthen its dynamics. WRX was introduced to involve the WazirX community in helping to build the platform and get rewarded accordingly for contributing to the platform’s success. The founders intend to evolve the use-cases of the native coin to enhance its worth further and, consequently, benefit the WazirX trading community.
Using WRX tokens for trading cryptocurrencies, you earn discounts and add to the token’s utilities and its overall worth. Since the more a token is in circulation, the more is its worth.
WRX tokens come with their bagful of utilities and benefits that can help a trader earn direct returns from holding and trading in it, discount in fees, and various other utilities:

WazirX currently charges 0.2% trading fees from its traders, which is the minimal fee of any exchange charges in India.

5. From Dust to WRX
Many a time, owing to varied minimum trading limits for different cryptos on a platform, small amounts of crypto remain unspent in our wallets. Traders call it ‘crypto dust’ as the amounts lying in the wallets are of different cryptos and are practically untradeable. What to do with the dust then? WazirX has an answer in another exciting use case of WRX token.
You can convert your crypto dust into WRX tokens! How?
Simply, go to the funds’ section on the website and select convert to crypto. If you are using the WazirX app, visit the account settings and select the option convert to WRX. The USP of this use case lies in its multifunctionality. You may convert multiple coins at the same time or in case you want to keep aside some crypto, you may deselect it and carry on.
Once you click on the Convert to WRX option, the market price of the dust would be taken into consideration and the exact amount of WRX tokens would then reflect in your balance.
6. Use WRX to Buy NFTS
This feature of the native token is the most recent addition to its use-cases. WazirX recently launched an NFT marketplace on the Binance blockchain that will cater to the Indian as well as the South Asian art entrepreneurs, artists, and collectors. The collectors can purchase NFTs on the marketplace using WRX tokens. WazirX has also announced a bonus of 50,000 WRX tokens to be rewarded as giveaways to all those who engage on the NFT platform that is currently in its beta phase.
7. WRX Rewards from Airdrops
If a company agrees to provide tokens to WazirX users in return for listing on WazirX or if some company wants to incentivize the users as a way to be promoted to all WazirX users, airdrops take place. The platform distributes such airdrops to you, in case you are a WazirX member, based on the amount of WRX you hold.
