What is XTZ

Tezos is an open-source protocol that works on a proof-of-stake consensus mechanism. By design, Tezos is a self-amending blockchain that is focused on long-term upgradeability. This allows Tezos to address some of the key issues in blockchain adoption like high energy consumption and lack of code verifiability.

Blockchains like Ethereum (ETH) are criticized for high transaction costs (gas fees) and slow confirmation times. Tezos actively works to provide a faster and more economical alternative through constant upgrades to its core protocol. One of the most recent upgrades to Tezos, Granada, reduced block creation time from 60 seconds to 30 seconds which resulted in lesser gas fees.

XTZ is Tezos’ native cryptocurrency coin, used for staking, governance and transaction fees. Tezos holders are rewarded for participating in the protocol’s proof-of-stake consensus mechanism and validating transactions. Tezos also uses a liquid proof-of-stake method, which means that stakers can un-stake any time without a lock-in period. At the same time, Tezos uses a five-stage governance proposal process with a heavy focus on active community collaboration, allowing token holders to propose, evaluate and approve the future development of the blockchain.

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.
