Bancor launched on June 12, 2017, with the most extensive initial coin offering. It raised $153 million, distributing half of the initial BNT supply. Bancor was the first DEX to use an AMM to facilitate swaps between Ethereum-based tokens. Instead of a central order book that matched buyers and sellers according to their bid and ask prices, the AMM fulfilled orders with on-chain liquidity pools.
In July 2018, an attacker stole 25,000 ETH, 2.5 million BNT, and 230 million NPXS tokens from the Bancor protocol. The team was able to recover, freeze, or destroy the stolen BNT, but no ETH nor NPXS were recovered. The Bancor team's recovery sparked controversy about the protocol's centralized governance that enabled the team to manipulate the BNT supply unilaterally. The event pushed the team to decentralize its platform by transitioning governance to a DAO. The Bancor went live towards the end of 2020. BNT holders can propose and vote on upgrades and protocol governance issues.
We launched Bancor V2.1 in March 2021 with new BNT supply and governance updates to address issues common to AMM exchanges.
