RNDR Credits provide new users or users who are unfamiliar with Cryptocurrency an easy way to get started on the network while they get comfortable. Unlike RNDR Tokens, RNDR Credits can be purchased using PayPal and Stripe, directly through the RNDR Portal on rndr.otoy.com.
When a user purchases RNDR Credits, those Credits are backed by RNDR Tokens that have been purchased off of an exchange by the RNDR Team. This means that when a creator pays for a job using RNDR Credits, node operators are paid out in RNDR Tokens for their work. Every 1 RNDR Credit used is backed by 4 RNDR Tokens.
