EOS (blockchain) tokens represent rights to bandwidth in the EOS network.  Chintai's token leasing protocol allows dApp producers to buy EOS bandwidth without holding EOS tokens from already existing holders. 
Chintai is a community owned token which is free for both token holders and dApp users to use, creates a decentralized marketplace for EOS token leasing, and provides secure lease market pricing without distortion by size of token market holding or requirements. 
Market Making and Price Discovery
Price discovery for Chintai should be viewed as an aggregator of sentiment primarily based on supply and demand.  The price discovery process will operate through the Chintai token cycle bidding, which determines the lease market price through the interactions of lessors (token holders) and lesses (typically dAp producers).  In addition, the Chintai price discovery process will further be impacted by: 
- Lessor numbers and token quantities (total available supply)
- Lessee numbers and token requirements (total available demand)
- Bidding and settlement processes
- Current Bid Price
- Current Offer Price
