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 32nd largest cryptocurrency in the world by market cap, valued at $5,398,691,159. The current price of Tezos is $6.4, which is 0.016% lower than yesterday. Prices have ranged between $6.7 and $6.24 over the past 24 hours. All prices are listed in US dollars and accurate as of September 19, 2021 05:09 UTC.
