XDC Network comprises part of the XinFin platform and operates as a “hybrid blockchain”. It is geared toward the global trade and finance industries and aims to connect public and private blockchains together with interoperable smart contracts. Decentralized applications and protocols can be built on the network that facilitates token issuance and token integration. It also seeks to offer low fees, fast transaction confirmation times, double validation, and randomization to guarantee fairness.
XDC is the platform’s native cryptocurrency. It has a total supply of 37,774,071,193 tokens and is used as a utility token that powers the XinFin blockchain. XDC is used as a payment settlement for decentralized applications built on the network’s blockchain.
The XDC blockchain uses a consensus mechanism known as XinFin Delegated Proof-of-Stake (XDPoS) in order to provide high levels of security. The mechanism relies on 108 masternodes to secure the network. In order to become a masternode participants must deposit 10,000,000 XDC.
The unique mechanism includes double validation technology for added security, randomization for improved fairness, and fast confirmation times. When a block is created by a masternode it must be verified by another randomly selected masternode. It can then be added to the XDC blockchain.
Some key features of the XinFin XDC blockchain include:
The XinFin project has developed several products which complement the XDC Network. This includes:
In more detail, the XDC token is used as a unit of exchange within the entire XinFin ecosystem. Applications can be built by developers on the network to leverage the platform’s functionalities and tokens. Examples of applications include ChainFiles, an online notarization platform, and Crypterium, a wallet built for traditional and digital assets. It is worth noting that XinFin has launched an ERC20 token, XDCE, which can be swapped with XDC at a 1:1 ratio. This means that users can hold tokens on either network, expanding the potential use cases to the Ethereum network. In addition, since the XDC blockchain is EVM-compatible, apps can easily be ported from Ethereum into the XDC environment.
