We keep expanding our list of assets, the next addition to which is Elrond (EGLD), the token of “The Internet Scale Blockchain”. To celebrate our newest listing, make sure you don’t miss our EGLD trading competition, where the best traders will have the chance to win awesome prizes!
Update (the 10th of June 2021): Thank you for participating and congratulations to the lucky winners. All prizes have been paid out.
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.
EGLDis 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.
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).
To celebrate the listing of EGLD on Bitpanda, make sure you don’t miss our EGLD trading competition: it starts at 12:00 PM CET on the 2nd of June, 2021 and ends at 11:59 AM CET on the 9th of June, 2021. Ready to win? Here are the prizes:
The trader ranked in first place with the highest total amount of EGLD purchased will receive €1,000 in EGLD!
The traders ranked between 2nd to 5th place with the highest total amount of EGLD purchased will each receive €750 in EGLD!
The traders ranked between 6th to 10th with the highest total amount of EGLD purchased will each receive €500 in EGLD!
The traders ranked 11th to 20th with the highest total amount of EGLD purchased will each receive €350 in EGLD!
As a bonus prize, 50 traders (outside of the 20 winners from the prizes listed above) who are not residents of the Republic of Turkey, who are BEST VIP level 1 and above and who trade any amount of EGLD will be randomly selected to receive €200 worth of Bitcoin each!
Please note that the exclusion of the residents of the Republic of Turkey from being selected as VIP-Winners is based solely on the legal requirements of the Republic of Turkey. The value of Elrond (EGLD) for the calculation of the prize fund is pegged to its exchange rate as of 25th of March 2021; the respective conversion rate in use will be 1 EGLD = EUR 103.55.
Best of luck to everybody - trade EGLD now!
