What is RAM?
RAM is a commodity, Although RAM can be sold, it can't be transferred, traded or withdrawn from accounts（. The system contract of EOS.IO doesn’t set the market price, it is determined by the users who trade interacting with the system contract.
In fact, sale of RAM is that you sell EOS to EOS.IO system account in blockchain. The object of the transaction is the EOS system. Both buying RAM (sell your EOS and get RAM) and selling RAM (acquire your EOS and release RAM) are interactions between the participant and the system account.
The price of RAM is automatically priced according to the improved Bancor algorithm, it will be automatically balanced according to changes in the relationship of supply and demand. So, after the sale or purchase is successful, users can check the real trading situation and the purchase or sale price through TxID.
EOS.IO adopts a free-market approach to allocating scarce resources to their highest purpose. To facilitate this market, the EOS.IO system contract allows users to buy RAM from the system and sell RAM back to the system in exchange for the blockchains native tokens (e.g. EOS). This not only mobilizes the liquidity of the RAM market, but also promotes price discovery (in the condition of a mechanism that is close to a perfectly competitive market, the market determines the price). The less unallocated available RAM, the higher the price for the remaining RAM. The algorithm used for this quote is called Bancor Relay.
Bancor Relay doesn’t set the price of RAM. It only offers trading at previously determined market prices. Any time the current market price is different from the current price offered by Bancor Relay, the trader will buy or sell RAM to push it closer to the market-determined price.
The buying and the selling price of RAM have huge fluctuations and large market risks. Please decide carefully whether to participate in the transaction from your own actual situation, such as level of risk tolerance, and allocate your assets accordingly. At the same time, please be sure to pay close attention to the information from the trading center announcements, risk reminders, etc., to understand the market situation in time, investing rationally and avoiding blindly following the trend.
Your transactions should be based on your knowledge of RAM and a trading experience in the blockchain. Chaince only provides services to facilitate trade. Our information is only for your reference.
