The Archive token (ARCH) is an ERC-20 contract deployed to the Ethereum blockchain and is used within the KnowledgeArc.Network ecosystem as a method of exchange; consumers can purchase services such as backups, peer review, 3rd party functionality and other solutions, and providers can earn Archive tokens by providing these decentralized services. For example, someone can provide a node to the KnowledgeArc.Network IPFS Cluster backup and a user looking for a backup solution can pay in Archive for the use of the provider’s resources.
