Tezos is a popular open-source blockchain network where assets and decentralized applications can be built by developers easily. It is safeguarded by institutional-grade smart contracts. It also has a native cryptocurrency named XTZ priced at $2.31.
It uses the delegated proof of stake consensus mechanism (DPoS) where stakeholders take part in the creation of new blocks to obtain rewards. DPoS uses less computation power and is highly energy efficient while validating transactions executed by the users of the platform.
The stakeholders will be rewarded by the DPoS protocol for lending their support to the stability and the security of the network.
