015: Why Bancor A Decentralize Liquidity Network Will Change The World – Eyal Hertzog

Eyal Hertzog Interviewed on The Expat Money Show

We are joined by Eyal Hertzog the Co-Founder of The Bancor Network a top 100 Cryptocurrency Token. In this interview, we talk in depth about not just Bancor and what it will do in the world but the future of money as a concept. We dive deep on the liquidity problems that face the landscape and why longtail products are so important.

Eyal Hertzog makes some interesting points about user-generated content in the case of video and now with the possibility of user-generated money. When you understand the implications of this you can really understand why Cryptocurrency is changing the world and why it is here to stay.

In the case of the Bancor Network when you remove the need for counterparty and third party people or organizations and keep Cryptocurrency as decentralized as possible it is incredibly interesting and important.

Highlights to understand about the Bancor Network

  • No Spread – Low-cost conversions thanks to a non-profit automated market maker
  • Continuous Liquidity – Convert any token at any time regardless of buyers and sellers or trade volume
  • No Counterparty Risk – Buy and sell through smart contracts, no deposits, no exchanges
  • No Registration Required – On-chain conversions directly from your web3 wallet
  • Predictable Price Slippage – The Bancor Formula incorporates transaction size and needs no order book so prices are transparent
  • Backwards Compatible – Any existing ERC20 token can integrate into the Bancor Network with no code changes or fees


From the Bancor Networks Website:

The Bancor Protocol is a new standard for cryptocurrencies called Smart Tokens™. They are autonomously and continuously convertible to other tokens in the network at algorithmically calculated rates.

The protocol utilizes “connector” modules, which hold balances of other ERC20 tokens within a smart contract. The Bancor Formula constantly recalculates prices to maintain a balance between Smart Tokens and their connectors.



The Bancor Protocol is a technical revolution allowing tokens to be converted without matching two parties with opposite wants.

The magic is in the math. With a simple formula, balancing buys and sells so that every token in the network maintains a formulaic relationship to others.

The result is continuous liquidity regardless of trade volume or exchange listings.
