What is Velas?

Virtual Expanding Learning Autonomous System, or Velas, is a high throughput blockchain that aims to automize its operating parameters through a unique set of features. The network has created an innovative consensus mechanism called Artificial Intuitive Delegated Proof of Stake (AIDPos). The protocol aims to combine artificial intelligence (or intuition, as they call it) and “human consciousness”. The Velas blockchain seeks to gather, classify and distinguish patterns and relationships among sets of data that interact with the network, in its quest for higher throughput without giving up security. Velas uses a native token called XLV which has a number of different capabilities. The token is needed to fuel smart contracts and pay transaction fees, and also gives users discounts on fees. On top of all this, it can also be used for staking.

Velas (VLX) is the 308th largest cryptocurrency in the world by market cap, valued at $104,051,102. The current price of Velas is $0.04779386, which is 5.805% higher than yesterday.

What to consider when buying Velas

Velas has recently announced the implementation of Velas 3.0. It will be formed by dozens of interrelated parts, with the goal of making the blockchain easier to access, more inclusive and more powerful. Although Velas is highly complex and technical in nature, its one-of-a-kind approach, the AIDPoS consensus mechanism and recent network upgrade should warrant users' attention.
  • Experienced team. Velas was founded by Alex Alexandrov, a crypto entrepreneur and prominent blockchain explorer. He is also the founder of CryptoPayments, the world’s #1 gateway for cryptocurrency payments.
  • Speed. The Velas team claims it can handle a high transaction throughput, of up to 50,000 t/ps. On top of that, due to the underlying capabilities of its delegated proof of stake, it requires up to 80% consensus for block validation, greatly reducing the possibility of malicious actors overriding the system.
  • BitOrbit. This is Velas’s new social content platform which includes a XLV wallet, file-sharing capabilities, chat functionality and more
  • Built for users, developers and merchants. It's built as a Telegram-style model, although enhancing it with several other capabilities, creating a complete social network.
  • New IPFS-powered content distribution platform. Establishes new community governance guidelines to eliminate certain content, and provides a file hosting and sharing platform which users can monetize.
Disclaimer: Cryptocurrencies, including Velas, are speculative, complex and involve significant risks – they are highly volatile and sensitive to secondary activity. Performance is unpredictable and past performance of VLX 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.
