What is Tezos?

Tezos is not only a platform for smart contracts and decentralised applications (dapps), it’s also the world’s first self-evolving blockchain. In the short history of cryptocurrencies, there have been numerous examples of currencies being forced to fork their network into two different blockchains in order to upgrade. Perhaps the most notable example of this was the DAO hack that saw Ethereum and Ethereum Classic go their separate ways. Forks often divide the community behind a cryptocurrency and can cause significant network disruptions. Tezos’ unique solution is a process that enables its protocol to be continuously upgraded through on-chain governance. The aim behind this is for the network to constantly evolve and upgrade over time, rather than undergoing radical changes that require a hard fork. All stakeholders can participate in governing the Tezos protocol by voting on proposed changes and upgrades.

Tezos (XTZ) is the 35th largest cryptocurrency in the world by market cap, valued at $5,674,271,377. The current price of Tezos is $6.6, which is -0.324% lower than yesterday. Prices have ranged between $6.94 and $6.43 over the past 24 hours. All prices are listed in US dollars and accurate as of October 18, 2021 07:10 UTC.

What to consider when buying Tezos

Cryptocurrencies are complicated and volatile assets, and buying any digital coin or token comes with a high level of risk attached. With this in mind, it’s essential that you research and understand the many factors that can potentially impact the price movements of any cryptocurrency before you buy. If you’re thinking of buying any XTZ, make sure you consider the following:
  • Controversy. We’ve given you an abridged version of the scandals that have plagued Tezos above. Before buying any XTZ, make sure you thoroughly research the ins and outs of the lawsuits and apparent internal power struggles that have troubled Tezos and made headlines throughout the crypto world.
  • Use. Tezzies are the Tezos network’s store of value. They’re used to pay transaction fees and power smart contracts, and are also offered as baking rewards.
  • Whitepaper. If you want to take a detailed look at the technology behind Tezos and how the platform works, check out the project’s whitepaper. The Tezos position paper is also a useful document for understanding the motivation behind the creation of the platform.

Disclaimer: Cryptocurrencies, including Tezos, are speculative, complex and involve significant risks – they are highly volatile and sensitive to secondary activity. Performance is unpredictable and past performance of XTZ is no guarantee of future performance. Consider your own circumstances, and obtain your own advice, before relying on this information. You should also verify the nature of any product or service (including its legal status and relevant regulatory requirements) and consult the relevant Regulators' websites before making any decision. Finder, or the author, may have holdings in the Tezos or any other cryptocurrency discussed.
