About Velas

What Is Velas (VLX)?

Velas (VLX) is a cryptocurrency driven by a diverse team of mathematicians, engineers, researchers, cryptographers, and results-driven business heads. The Velas platform claims to be creating an open-sourced ecosystem of blockchain products and services. Velas aims to merge the finest qualities of both decentralized and centralized solutions. The process includes researching state-of-the-art cryptography, creating consensus protocols, and developing intuitive user interfaces. These interfaces aim to allow enterprises, developers, and people globally to build and join a transparent, effortlessly accessible, and community-governed ecosystem for Web3.

The platform is developed to become a blockchain suited for thousands of services and applications to be built upon. Therefore, it is designed to be one of the industry's fastest and most secure platforms.

VLX token is native to the Velas platform. The platform's tokenomics is based on DPoS (delegated proof of stake) economics that delivers participants with favorable situations for interaction and encourages them to function for the usefulness of the network. To become a validator, the trader should have at least one million VLX tokens. To become a delegator, the trader should have at least 1 VLX. DPoS delivers the chance for delegators to vote on possible validators by staking tokens on them and improving their probabilities of becoming validators.
