XCN is an Ethereum token that governs Chain Protocol and used to vote on protocol improvements and various community driven programs. XCN is also utilized for discounts, premium access, a payment method for commercial fees on Sequence and other Chain ecosystem products.

What Is Chain (XCN)?

Chain Protocol is an infrastructure for a multi-asset, shared, and cryptographically secure ledger. To explain further, Chain refers to a blockchain-based technology protocol that aims to develop and run a smarter and internally connected economy, with a mission to create cryptographic ledgers capable of improving existing financial products and services. The Chain ecosystem is powered by Sequence, the ledger-as-a-service platform. Sequence functions on a cloud blockchain infrastructure that seeks to allow companies to develop better and more efficient financial services from scratch.

Chain supports interoperability and coexistence of various independent networks that share common capabilities and format. The Chain ecosystem utilizes the principle of least authority, meaning that the control over assets is separated from control over ledger synchronization for better security. The principle of least authority/privilege refers to a security concept wherein the user only has levels of access needed to complete their job.

Further, Chain Protocol aims to create a safe and secure environment by following an infrastructure where participants can define and issue assets by simply writing custom issuance programs. The issued assets then are controlled by Chain’s control programs. Additionally, these programs integrate into an advanced programming language in order to develop unique smart contracts. Smart contracts are just like regular contracts; however, instead of being drafted on paper, these contracts run in the form of protocols on the blockchain. Moreover, Chain supports multiple networks; each network is secured via a group of block signers to seek to keep the protocol safe from forks. Lastly, for better efficiency, block creation is assigned to an individual block generator where any node can authenticate the blocks for submitting transactions.

Apart from this, Chain has a utility-based cryptocurrency, denoted by XCN. The XCN token can be utilized in a few ways such as getting discounted services, premium access, and paying the commercial fee for the Sequence blockchain. At the same time, XCN can also be used as the governance token for different community-driven projects.

History of Chain (XCN)

Chain was founded back in 2014, and Deepak Thapliyal currently holds the CEO position in the company. The maximum total supply of the XCN token is 53,474,611,831.
