We keep expanding our list of assets, to which the next addition is Elrond (EGLD), the token of “The Internet Scale Blockchain”. To celebrate our newest listing, we are happy to announce our EGLD trading competition, where traders will have the chance to win prizes worth a total of €10,000 in EGLD!

Update (the 10th of June 2021): Thank you for participating and congratulations to the lucky winners. All prizes have been paid out.

About Elrond

Elrond is a blockchain platform that is highly scalable, cost-effective, fast, and secure. This high scalability is achieved by a technology called ‘Adaptive State Sharding’, in which multiple sharding types are combined to drastically increase performance and efficiency.

Security is granted by a Proof of Stake (PoS) consensus algorithm, an energy-efficient solution compared to the relatively environmentally-unfriendly Proof of Work (PoW) alternative.

Elrond VM (VirtualMachine) enables developers to build apps in multiple programming languages, which, in itself, can be a significant advantage over other platforms when attracting users.

About the EGLD token

EGLD is the native token of the Elrond network - it’s primarily used as medium of exchange between Users and Validators, and is the token which validators need to stake to fulfil their roles.

Interestingly, you don’t have to be a Validator to stake EGLD. Anyone can delegate 1 EGLD or more into the live staking programme running on Elrond, and they can earn up to 20% APY rewards for securing the network.

Recent news

In Q1 of 2021, Elrond launched Maiar, a global payments and digital wallet app for sending and receiving money worldwide, using only a phone number or a unique username, a “herotag”.

Maiar is available to download for free in all countries, except in those with applicable regulations concerning cryptocurrencies. The app supports Elrond (EGLD), Binance (BNB) and Ethereum (ETH).
