Internet Computer Protocol is a decentralized internet architecture running on a blockchain instead of traditional web servers. The ICP utility token is used to pay for computation power on the network, and is used in governance proposals. You can buy and sell ICP for any major cryptocurrency, like BTC, ETH, and XRP or traditional currency such as Canadian Dollar, US Dollar, and Euro. Trading cryptocurrencies is like foreign exchange of traditional currencies – you trade ICP for BTC the same way you trade CAD for USD. You can also trade ICP to CAD based on the ICP price.

Founded and chaired by Dominic Williams, DFINITY Foundation (also known as DFINITY) is a nonprofit organization. ICP is the native cryptocurrency of the Internet Computer protocol. This protocol is a decentralized, open-source, general-purpose blockchain, designed to host smart contracts. For developers, ICP is a utility token, which means it has the ability of converting crypto into processing power. The network issues a fee based on the amount of computing power required by a developer’s project.

You may want to consider buying ICP if you would like to:

Are looking to utilize the Internet Computer protocol’s processing power

Participate in network governance through voting

Earn rewards by performing tasks on the network such as operating the node machines that host the network

Exchange it for cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin to buy and sell goods online
