Kucoin Team & Founders




Kucoin Fees


90% of the trading fees are returned users, leaving KuCoin only 10%. As 50% goes to users with KCS in their accounts as their Kucoin Bonus, the remaining 40% is shared via Invitation Bonus.



Data Security


KuCoin uses data encryption, dynamic authentication, multi-level risk identification control, and other systems to guarantee transaction security.

Amazon Web Services Cloud was used to build the private network framework that stores micro-withdrawal wallets. This allows the wallets to take advantage of that cloud’s multilayer firewall. Wallets also have multilayered encryption at an industry-level. Macro wallets are stored in banks.

All data handling, in general, are secured and encrypted with BANK LEVEL security.


Reward and growth incentive strategies


The team works on large-scale and long-term offline and online promotion and operations. Alongside the fee rewards those who register receive a bonus for inviting new users. The user who sends the invite receives a portion of the trading fees of the invitee. This is a roll on system and passes down which means every additional user that gets invited by someone from that first invitation the original user sent, the first user continuously will get a portion of every trade fee paid by everyone that he has (directly or indirectly) invited.



Fast/Efficient Order Processing


Million-Level Throughput for the Core Trading Engine: Peak order making value is 2 million+ per second with a peak order-processing value of 1 million+per second. This is far above anything currently required which means no lag or delay.
