Top 10 Things you Should Know about Tezos

Tezos describes itself as the “blockchain designed to evolve” and seeks to address the key barriers to blockchain adoption in the global market. Let’s look at Tezos and how it’s performed in the market.

1. What Is Tezos (XTZ) Cryptocurrency? ​

Tezos is a blockchain network linked to a digital token called a tezzie or a tez. It’s not mining-based but instead follows a proof-of-stake mechanism. Most of the original blockchains required the help of development teams and mining communities to formulate new design choices, whereas Tezos leaves the decision-making to the network of token holders. Token holders are allowed to vote on protocol developments.

2. Who Created Tezos?

Tezos was created by a husband and wife team, Kathleen and Arthur Breitman, through their start-up, Dynamic Ledger Solutions, in 2014. Its initial coin offering (ICO) launched in 2017 and went on to earn $232 million, making it one of the largest of all time.

3. Why Was Tezos Created?

Tezos was designed to address concerns about the flexibility and scalability of Bitcoin and prides itself on its ability to evolve. Tezos follows the Ethereum model of smart contracts. Smart contracts allow trusted transactions and agreements to be carried out among disparate anonymous parties and do not require a legal system, central authority, or any other external enforcement mechanism. Tezos lets participants directly control the network rules.

4. When Was Tezos Introduced?​

Tezos was founded by Kathleen and Arthur Breitman in 2014. The coin was only launched in 2017. Arthur Breitman originally proposed Tezos in a position paper in 2014 under the pseudonym LM Goodman. In 2015, they created the company Dynamic Ledger Solutions which wrote the code for Tezos. The initial coin offering raised $232 million, exceeding their target of $20 million.

5. How Many Tokens were Created?​

A token sale in July 2017 raised 65,681 BTC and 361 122 ETH. There were 743, 842, 304 XTZ issued at launch.

6. What Kind of Blockchain does it Run on?​

XTZ runs on the Tezos blockchain network. The digital tokens are called tez or tezzies. The launch of Tezos introduced a DPoS (Proof of Stake) consensus model that allows token holders to lock up their tokens in exchange for the ability to stake blocks. The Tezos community calls this “baking”.

7. Who Are the Most Popular Supporters of Tezos?

Mike Shinoda of Linkin Park is a fan of Tezos and has even released a few NFTs featuring his artwork.

8. Does Tezos Have An Online Community? ​

Tezos has one of the most vibrant communities online. They can be found on Reddit, Stack Exchange, Twitter, GitHub, Agora, or other platforms listed on the Tezos website. You can become a part of the community when you buy your Tezos on Zengo!

9. Where Can I Use Tezos in Real Life?​

It’s possible to purchase gift cards with Tezos that can be spent at many leading retailers. 

10. Can You Mine Tezos?​

You can’t mine Tezos because it uses a Proof of Stake protocol. You can buy or trade XTZ via your Zengo wallet.

What Are the Features of Tezos?

Tezos is a self-amending blockchain because token owners can propose and vote on-chain to approve any proposed changes. This aims to reduce divisions within the community by eliminating off-chain governance discussions and forums that slow down decision-making. ​

Tezos’s Proof of Stake model is more environmentally friendly than mining. Staking also ties your coins to power the network and provides incentives. ​

According to Staking Rewards, 77% of XTZ tokens earn an average of 4.66% APR in rewards. ​

Fun Facts About Tezos

Tezos had the most successful ICO (initial coin offering) of all time at its release. ​

Participants need 8,000 XTZ to become bakers. If you don’t have enough XTZ to participate, another delegate can endorse you without giving up ownership of their tokens.​

The ICO was followed by a large legal dispute between the Tezos President Johann Gevers and Arthur and Kathleen Breitman, which led to even further legal disputes. The issuing of tokens was significantly delayed significantly. ​

Bakers and endorsers receive incentives (XTZ inflation or newly minted tokens) for their contributions. ​

The word Tezos means “smart contracts” in Greek. ​
