What is Chia?

Copy link to section

Chia is a blockchain designed to facilitate international payments. Its long term goal is to be an international, commercial bank, built using an environmentally-friendly blockchain.

The Chia token, XCH, is used to pay for transactions and as an incentive for people to use the platform. 

How does Chia work?

Copy link to section

At a basic level, Chia works by using a blockchain to store a history of all transactions. The unique feature is that the blockchain uses a technology known as ‘Proof of Space and Time’ to secure the network.

The more data a computer stores, the more chance it has to add new blocks to the blockchain and earn a reward. As a result, it requires a lot less energy to run than a Proof of Work blockchain, like Bitcoin. 

How is the Chia network secured?

Copy link to section

The Chia network is secured by a consensus mechanism known as Proof of Space and Time. Proof of Space and Time requires its users to supply hard disk space rather than processing power to secure the network.

Proof of Space requires a computer to prove it has enough hard disk space available, while Proof of Time makes sure that all the data is consistent across each computer. 

What is Chia used for?

Copy link to section

The Chia token is primarily used to pay for goods and services on the Chia network. It’s also a means of speculation, as you can buy or sell the token to speculate on the performance of the network as a whole.

Why does XCH have value?

Copy link to section

XCH’s value is strongly linked to the success of the Chia network. The more people that use Chia for international payments, or for their decentralized finance needs, the more demand there will be for the XCH token.

In addition, Chia’s goal is to be a public company that lists on the NYSE or NASDAQ stock exchange in the United States. The idea is that this act would reduce some of the volatility of the XCH token, linking the token’s value to the value of shares in the company.

Who created Chia?

Chia was founded by Bram Cohen in May 2021. Cohen also founded the BitTorrent cryptocurrency. He remains in charge of Chia.
