      About Tezos

      Tezos is a decentralized blockchain that attempts to create a true digital commonwealth. Like Ethereum, smart contracts are able to be developed and deployed on the Tezos blockchain. The blockchain network Tezos is linked to the digital token XTZ, often called Tez or Tezzie. Tez tokens are not mined, instead token holders receive XTZ by participating in the proof-of-stake (POS) consensus mechanism. Tezos creates a big incentive users to participate in the core development process. For example, a developer can propose a protocol upgrade and attach an invoice with their address. If their upgrade is accepted by the network, they will be reimbursed the amount stated in the invoice. Despite being one of the biggest ICOs with over $232 million raised in July 2017, legal issues postponed the platform’s launch. However, since July 2018, the betanet has been launched successfully , putting Tezos back on track for great things to come.

      History of Tezos(XTZ)

      Tezos like all other cryptocurrencies is based on the model of the first actual cryptocurrency, Bitcoin. However, before Bitcoin’s and Tezos’s time , cryptocurrencies were much more different, relying instead on a centralized power structure rather than the decentralized governance we see today. If it weren’t for the works of cryptographers such as David Chaum, Wei Dai, Nick Szabo and Hal Finney, who established some of the ground concepts for modern cryptocurrencies, Bitcoin, Ethereum and Tezos would not exist today. However, the most important reason why Tezos was made possible is thanks to a person or a group of people under the alias Satoshi Nakamoto. He took the concepts that cryptographers before him established and managed to create an actual peer-to-peer electronic money system that couldn’t be counterfeited. If Satoshi Nakamoto didn’t create Bitcoin, it is hard to say if Tezos or most cryptocurrencies would exist today.

      Tezos is a cryptocurrency with the symbol XTZ and it’s price ticker on our website is 1.18. Its current price is 1.18 and the total change over the past 24 hours is -0.04. Tezos boasts a volume of 1,549,074.14 in the past 24 across your selected exchanges.

      Tezos Characteristics

      Cryptocurrencies like Tezos use strong cryptographic protocols, or very complex computer code to secure transfers of information, in order to create a safe system that is notoriously difficult to crack. The programmer of digital currencies such as Tezos base these protocols on complex mathematic and computer engineering fundamentals, creating a structure that makes it impossible to replicate funds for Tezos and also hides the identities of the parties involved on any transaction on Tezos network , unless the participants freely disclose their information.

      Tezos Operates on a Blockchain

      Tezos, like most cryptocurrencies operates on a blockchain, a new and disruptive technology that offers benefits for storing, securing and transferring information that was not otherwise possible before its inception. The idea of blockchain was first discovered in 1991 by Stuart Haber and W. Scott Stornetta, however it was not until an anonymous person or group under the alias of Satoshi Nakamoto that created the first functional blockchain (Bitcoin’s blockchain) and improved on the ideas of Haber and Scornetta to create a truly functional distributed ledger.

      You can imagine the blockchain that Tezos is based on as a giant, distributed database where every transaction’s information is recorded and then spread on a massive network of connected nodes or computers. The information for transaction of Tezos is then multiplied and stored on each individual node, so in order to change it you would have to access he majority of the Tezos’s nodes at the same time, which has so far proven to be impossible.

      The advantages that Tezos runs on a blockchain are that it is very cost effective to run, compared to other centralized resources, due to the cost of operating being split amongst all the network participants.

      No one can alter the defining characteristics that govern Tezos base, unless certain conditions are met and changes are implemented by the developer team or a network wide consensus is reached for the changes to be applied.

      One disadvantage of operating on a blockchain is that generally, transactions with Tezos are final, meaning that is very unlikely that a transaction can be rolled back if a mistake occurs. Be careful when transacting cryptocurrencies such as Tezos and make sure you double check all the details of the transaction before submitting it.

      Tezos also boasts a higher degree of safety, as the mechanisms of the blockchain are incredibly hard to crack

      Tezos Advantages

      Decentralized Point of Control

      Tezos (XTZ) is defined by a decentralized governance system, which does not rely on a single point of control to manage transactions on the network in the same way a bank would. Because of this Tezos’s network features a distinct advantage that makes it very difficult to counterfeit or imitate. Another advantage of being decentralized is that any attacks on Tezos’s network will have to be in multiple places at the same, whereas a bank or any centralized system will have an host of servers in one place.

      Cost Efficient

      Generally speaking, auditing records is a time consuming and expensive process, whereas for Tezos which stores all its records on the blockchain, this can be done with minimal effort and in a much shorter time.

      Establishing a Digital Identity

      You can create your own identity on the Tezos blockchain, which can be though of as an account of sorts. Whenever you open an “account” on the Tezos blockchain, you will be given a private key, which lets you interact with the blockchain, and a public key, which let others identify and interact with you.

      Immutable

      Since all information that is transmitted on the Tezos blockchain is stored and secured on a wide network of computers or nodes, you can always be sure that the information presented is valid and has not been tampered with.

      Tezos Supply Details

      Tezos is distinguished from traditional fiat currencies due to way the supply works for most cryptocurrencies. Another interesting fact about Tezos’s supply is there can be two other types of supply aside from the maximum supply. One is the total supply which indicates the amount of coins there are currently in existence. For Tezos the total supply is 801312599. This is the sum of all Tezos units that have been mined or created since the network’s creation. . The other one is the circulating supply which for Tezos is 660373612. This can be different that the total supply due factors such as funds being locked in escrow, coins being locked in masternodes.

      How to Store Tezos

      There are a few way to store your Tezoss , and they all involve a certain types of both physical and electronic wallets. Regardless of what kind of wallet you will use, in order to access your Tezos funds you will need to have a private key and a public key. With the private key, you can access your funds and send them to whoever you like, just as long as it is an address that Tezos is compatible with. Never ever disclose your Tezos private key or also called private address, as this will give anyone who has it full control over your wallet. The other type of key is the public key or address, which is used for other people to send Tezos to your wallet, and this one can be freely disclosed but it can be used to identify you if a name is ever associated with your public address.

      Tezos Paper Wallet

      The only physical and non-electronic way to store your Tezos is through a paper wallet, and this is possibly the safest way to protect your Tezoss. Simply write the private and public keys of your Tezos wallet on a sheet of paper, however you will need access to an electronic device should you choose to send or move your Tezos funds to another address. The risk here is losing or damaging the sheet of paper with your Tezos public key.

      Tezos Hardware Wallet

      You can store Tezos on a device like a Trezor or USB drive. You are able to make online transactions by plugging them into any any net enabled device to send Tezos to another address. Usually the hardware device that you store your Tezos on is offline which is a great security advantage.

      For online wallets, they operate in the cloud and your private and public keys for your Tezos funds are stored in the cloud as well. Very handy if you plan to access it from multiple devices but they also put your Tezos at great risk due to security breaches in the cloud storage which is not that unheard of.
