SNX is the native governance token of the Synthetix protocol, a decentralized platform enabling the creation and trading of synthetic assets on the Ethereum blockchain. Through the Synthetix protocol, users can mint synthetic assets, known as Synths, which represent the value of other assets such as fiat currencies, commodities, and cryptocurrencies. SNX holders participate in the governance of the Synthetix protocol by staking their tokens as collateral to mint Synths and influence the protocol's development. The value of SNX is influenced by various factors, including the adoption and usage of Synthetix, the effectiveness of the governance mechanisms, and the overall market sentiment towards synthetic assets. By holding SNX, users have voting rights and influence over the future direction of the protocol."
