That said, in this article, we will tackle one of the most common questions we get asked by our community:

What are the differences between AppCoins and AppCoins Credits?

AppCoins (APPC) is a cryptocurrency based on Ethereum ERC 20 tokens that allows for transactions to be made within the Aptoide app store by its users, developers and manufacturers.

The open blockchain-based protocol was developed by Aptoide, and covers the financial transactions and user-acquisition flow.

It also provides developers a transparent and efficient way to monetise their apps and gives users a trusted environment with new payment options and incentives to discover apps.

Here is a video explaining AppCoins (in under 3 minutes!):

Users can buy and trade AppCoins using the following exchanges: Binance, Huobi, HitBTC, and Kyber Network. They can also keep track of all the transactions involving AppCoins here.

As opposed to AppCoins, AppCoins Credits cannot be converted into money.

AppCoins Credits (APPC-C), also referred to as APPC Credits, are a virtual currency created by AppCoins that allows users — even the unbanked ones — to make online transactions, including in-app purchases (IAP).

It was created for the AppCoins blockchain platform to perform transactions within the app store ecosystem. Meaning that the credits could be earned and spent in the same place, creating a circular economy.

Users can earn APPC-C without having or needing a bank card, and can use such credits to make in-app purchases for weapons, gems, lives, or any other gaming items. As opposed to AppCoins, AppCoins Credits cannot be converted into money.
