Another key factor in the price of XPOP tokens is based on the speed of transaction distribution of XPOP tokens. It is expected that the transaction distribution speed of the tokens will be higher as the ecosystem maturity of the token gets established. However, as more companies participate to become validators with XPOP, the number of XPOP tokens used to secure benefits as ecosystem partners will increase. Also, as the volume of transactions increases, sellers of digital content assets will have to hold more tokens as collateral for trading their creations. Assuming that other conditions do not change, more XPOP tokens will be needed to function as trading volume and liquidity increase, which will further reduce the speed of distribution transactions of XPOP tokens and drive up the price of each token.
