What is IOST (IOST)?
IOST is a smart contract layer 1 blockchain based on the “Proof of Believability” (PoB) consensus mechanism that focuses on speed and scalability. Like the Ethereum platform, IOST is also built as a base layer for smart contracts and decentralized applications across DeFi, NFTs, and Web3.
IOST is used to pay transaction fees on the network. In addition, IOST is staked by nodes to gain believability scores, rewarded to the nodes that secure the network, and staked by users to gain access to fee-less transactions.
Similar to Ether (ETH) on Ethereum, IOST is also used as a decentralized storage of value across DeFi. Nodes are also given governance proposal creation power and voting rights weighted by the number of IOST tokens they hold or have been delegated.
