What is Mixin?
Mixin is a Japanese-based network that processes peer-to-peer transactions across different blockchains with "lightning-fast" speeds and minimal fees. Unlike traditional blockchains, the Mixin network employs a directed acyclic graph (DAG) structure to process transactions, meaning that new payments can be validated simultaneously. According to the Mixin whitepaper, its ultimate goal is to help other ledgers "achieve trillions of transactions per second (TPS), zero transaction fees and unlimited extensibility". The protocol currently supports 13 blockchains and over 50,000 cryptocurrency tokens. A key feature of the Mixin networks is Mixin Messenger, a decentraliszed app (dAPP) developed by the team. The app operates as a hybrid of Facebook messenger and a typical cryptocurrency wallet, letting users store, send and receive digital assets as well as privately chat to others using encrypted messages. XIN is the native token of the Mixin network. It can be staked on the Mixin protocol in exchange for additional tokens as a reward. XIN coins are also pivotal for the compatibility of dApps built within the Mixin framework.

What to consider when buying MixinBefore rushing out to invest in any cryptocurrency it’s first worth researching the token, it’s associated platform and observe what factors might influence its price.
- Competition. According to Mixin’s documentation, its goal is to address the blockchain trilemma (particularly speed and interoperability) and improve the ecosystem of decentralized finance as a whole. Most newly minted tokens and cryptocurrency networks are attempting to thwart issues with scalability, and XIN’s point of difference remains a little difficult to pinpoint. The app, Mixin Messenger, is in direct competition with social media giant Facebook, who is developing the ability for its users to send cryptocurrency to and from one another.
- Tokenomics. The total supply of XIN is capped at 1 million; of that, 560,770 is in circulation according to the Mixin team. 500,000 XIN is reserved for the running of the network’s nodes, while the rest is distributed among Mixin Messenger adopters, the development team and public trading pairs. To stake XIN on the Mixin platform, users must delegate at least 10,000 XIN.
- Price history. Upon release, XIN tokens were priced at over $2,000. Soon after, the value plummeted, with the price never again exceeding $1,500 and even dropping as low as $90. Such volatility and uncertainty in price suggests purchasing XIN may not be ideal for those who are after a safe, steady investment.
