REQ price

REQ is the utility token that powers the Request Network. It was launched in 2017 and is intended to ensure the performance and stability of the network. Miners are charged a fee when a payment is created, which is then stored on an Ethereum smart contract.

The fees, paid out in REQ, are burned periodically to lower the amount of REQ in existence. Theoretically, the controlled supply and network demand (via potential use cases) could justify the value of the token.

A total of 999,876,008.01 REQ are in circulation out of a maximum supply of 999,877,117 REQ.

On its Oct. 20, 2017, launch, REQ changed hands at $0.05684.

Prices for REQ reached an all-time high of $1.18 on Jan. 6, 2018, and collapsed to just slightly above $0.02 a year later. It suffered an all-time low of $0.004651 on March 13, 2020, during the COVID-19 panic selling on that day. It subsequently rebounded to as high as $1.08 on Nov. 25, 2021.
