What is MINA

Mina Protocol is a smart contract-compatible, proof-of-stake cryptocurrency blockchain that aims to build the privacy and security layer for Web3. To deliver true decentralization at scale, Mina Protocol uses recursive zero-knowledge technology.


Major cryptocurrencies are massive in size, with Bitcoin crossing over 400 gigabytes. The founders of Mina Protocol predict that currencies like Bitcoin will soon amass to a size that is unable to record all transaction histories. The Mina Protocol blockchain is built to solve this critical issue. It remains at the same size, around 22kb, irrespective of the growth in its usage. With its small, fixed size, Mina Protocol enables quick and direct access from smartphones and other blockchains.


Mina Protocol also hosts zkApps which are smart contracts built on zero-knowledge technology. This allows users to have control over their data by sharing proofs rather than the data itself.


Verifiers act like nodes on the Mina Protocol and hold the zero-knowledge proof. Since the proof is so lightweight, all Mina Protocol users can act as verifiers. Mina’s proof-of-stake mechanism is Ouroboros Samasika, a modification of Cardano’s system, but requires much less computing power.

Cryptocurrency is a new class of digital assets popularized by Bitcoin (BTC). While cryptocurrencies or digital/virtual currencies work much like their traditional fiat counterparts, the biggest difference between the two is the lack of centralized infrastructure and banks.


Where fiat currencies are issued by and kept in banks, digital currencies are issued via distributed mechanisms that follow strict consensus protocols. This translates into cryptocurrencies being stored on blockchains which are largely immutable, much more transparent and globally accessible.


Given their utility and growing list of use cases, cryptocurrencies are gaining popularity and one way to buy cryptocurrency is to use a reliable crypto exchange like OKX. On OKX, users can sign up, verify their identities and start buying Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies instantly using credit cards, debit cards, bank transfers and other supported payment methods.


Typically, when you buy cryptocurrency, you have to store it in a dedicated wallet, but the security of your digital assets depends on how safely your private key is kept. Every cryptocurrency wallet has a private key which allows complete access to the stored digital assets. If you lose your private key, you effectively lose your funds.


Using an exchange like OKX also facilitates users because their newly purchased or traded digital assets are kept securely on the platform and are credited into users' accounts, available to be sold or transferred as required.


Ultimately, users should always buy cryptocurrency from a reliable exchange, and if they withdraw their digital assets to a personal wallet, they should keep their private keys safe and backed up to ensure the security of their funds.
