TNC（Trinity Network Credit）is the “protocol fuel” for the Trinity network, which is used to (i) pay the deposit for state channels and the cost of fuel for channel establishment and (ii) reward Trinity network participants.
The Trinity network has a layered protocol architecture. Trinity’s communication layer provides asset flow and micro-payment functions, which imposes no additional payment fees on users. Trinity is also described by the team as a decentralized off-chain ecosystem that aims to facilitate the free movement of digital assets. TNC serves as incentives in the Trinity network.
