What is Hathor?

Take Bitcoin, remove the gas fees, add lightweight smart contracts and improve versatility, and you've got Hathor. Hathor sets out to solve at least part of the blockchain trilemma – providing scalability and decentralization without sacrificing too much security. The company is upfront with its goals, describing itself as ideal for lightweight financial transactions and what it refers to as "nano contracts" – easy and quick smart contracting. The Hathor network combines Directed Acrylic Graph (DAG) and blockchain technology in a proof-of-work transaction model. Using a DAG makes transactions free, while the blockchain provides secure and verifiable transactions via a distributed ledger.

Hathor (HTR) is the 325th largest cryptocurrency in the world by market cap, valued at $102,976,747. The current price of Hathor is $0.49009, which is 5.194% higher than yesterday. Prices have ranged between $0.509167 and $0.460338 over the past 24 hours. All prices are listed in US dollars and accurate as of August 05, 2021 02:08 UTC.

What to consider when buying Hathor

Hathor positions itself as the next logical step past Bitcoin, keeping the proof-of-work model but improving decentralization. The company also tries to keep things simple, eliminating transaction fees and complicated terminology – no "gas fees", for instance. While the transaction rate is comparatively low – 200 per second – the network is still more scalable than Bitcoin. Here are some considerations before you invest in Hathor:
  • Competition. Other tokens have sought to achieve similar goals – improving on Bitcoin by adding scalability and decentralization, but still keeping to the proof-of-work model.
  • Decentralization. Combining a DAG and a blockchain helps keep HTR decentralized. Hathor offers some unique features, including the ability to create new tokens quickly and exchange them easily on the same network.
  • Nano contracts. Nano contracts are scaled-down, simplified smart contracts that use oracles to connect real-world data to the terms of the contract, without relying on any centralized agency. The network is designed to make nano contracts appealing to users who want to explore the DeFi possibilities of smart contracts without prohibitive fees. Because they are simplified, nano contracts also consume fewer system resources than typical smart contracts.
Disclaimer: Cryptocurrencies, including Hathor, are speculative, complex and involve significant risks – they are highly volatile and sensitive to secondary activity. Performance is unpredictable and past performance of HTR 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.
