What is Conflux?

Conflux Network is a high-throughput blockchain based on a unique Proof-of-Work (PoW) consensus mechanism. The network was created by Turing Award recipient Dr Andrew Yao and is the only state-backed public blockchain operating in China. It was built with the aim of high throughput, fast confirmation and to be utilized by global communities and economies.

The blockchain can process 3,000-6,000 transactions per second (tps), which is a transaction rate much higher than blockchains such as Bitcoin and Ethereum. The PoW mechanism, called Tree-Graph, optimizes security and scalability without compromising decentralization.

CFX is the native token of the Conflux Network and is at the core of the network’s ecosystem. The CFX token was designed to provide several economic benefits and promote participation in the network by rewarding behaviors that contribute to optimum functionality. Each token consists of smaller units known as Drips. These are comparable to Satoshis on Bitcoin. Drips are used to pay for transaction fees on the network. Any fees are collected and awarded to miners or those that maintain the Conflux Network.

Conflux (CFX) is the 220th largest cryptocurrency in the world by market cap, valued at $342,375,151. The current price of Conflux is $0.336888, which is 1.351% higher than yesterday. Prices have ranged between $0.340105 and $0.329525 over the past 24 hours. All prices are listed in US dollars and accurate as of October 26, 2021 06:10 UTC.

What to consider when buying Conflux

Cryptocurrency assets can be extremely volatile in price. An investor should become comfortable with all associated risks before making a purchase. Here's what to consider before buying CFX:
  • Supply: At the time of writing, CFX has a circulating supply of approximately 8.4 billion tokens. There is no cap on maximum supply. The network has a certain level of built-in inflation whereby more CFX is gradually added to the total circulating supply over time.
  • Staking: The CFX tokens on the Conflux Network are either liquid or staked. Liquid tokens can be transferred and used freely. Staked tokens are locked within the network to assist with validation and security. Staked tokens earn rewards in return for removing them from the liquid market. Staking is required to gain access to voting rights via the community governance protocol.
  • Scalability: The unique PoW algorithm provides high throughput without sacrificing decentralization. The 3,000-6,000 tps makes it one of the best blockchains for scalability.
  • Multi-chain interoperability: There are now multiple blockchains globally. To transfer assets across chains usually requires high gas fees. The Conflux Network provides true multi-chain interoperability, allowing users to convert assets across the Binance Smart Chain (BSC), OKEx Chain and Ethereum. This is facilitated by the network’s Shuttleflow service. This also means that the Conflux Network could be applicable to developers looking to create multi-chain decentralized applications.

Disclaimer: Cryptocurrencies, including Conflux, are speculative, complex and involve significant risks – they are highly volatile and sensitive to secondary activity. Performance is unpredictable and past performance of CFX 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 Conflux or any other cryptocurrency discussed.
