Europechain uses a blockchain protocol based on the EOSIO protocol. This means that transactions are free. However, in order to perform transactions you will need to stake (temporary lock) a certain amount of tokens. The larger your stake, the more transactions you are able to perform in a certain amount of time.

Creating an account on the Europechain Public Blockchain is very simple and can be done using the link below. Keep in mind that this requires a coupon code, which can be obtained by reaching out to us and requesting a code.

By default Europechain accounts do not have access to all permissions. To gain access to certain permissions, you will need to send a request to the Europechain permissions portal.

The Europechain Public Blockchain is operated by 21 independent companies from around Europe. In order to make important decisions, 2/3+1 (15/21) block producers will have to agree on the decision. Furthermore, all block producers and applications will have to perform a privacy impact assessment to ensure their operations and applications are compliant with EU regulations.

Yes, the Europechain Public Blockchain launched on the 7th of August 2019 and has been running smoothly since.

Yes Europechain is part of the active and vibrant EOSIO developer community. Come join our Telegram group and we can connect you to leading experts and resources.

A blockchain is simply a way to store data which when distributed across many instances becomes a trusted record of transactions. Each block has a reference to the previous block forming a chain of blocks. Data on a blockchain can not be changed as many copies exist, using it allows new types of applications to be created, and it has the ability to massively improve current applications and processes.

Delegated Proof Of Stake is a more efficient and democratic version of the Proof Of Stake (POS) consensus mechanism. Systems which are using DPOS instead of the commonly used Proof Of Work, which require big hardware and power investments, are more eco-friendly and sustainable by design and generally have higher scalability as well.

On a blockchain which uses DPOS, stakeholders can vote for delegates/block producers which secure the network on their behalf. On Europechain, there are 21 block producers which run the network and secure it.

EOSIO is a blockchain protocol which is built to scale and has the ability to work in many different industries. EOSIO uses a DPoS consensus mechanism and various notable features such as accounts, a built-in permissions system, and NFT support.

Staking is the process of temporarily locking up a certain amount of tokens in order to gain access to resources, which are needed to execute transactions and deploy applications. The more tokens you stake, the more resources you have access to. When unstaking/unlocking the tokens, the tokens become liquid again after 72 hours.

The Europechain Public Blockchain has three resources, namely CPU, NET, and RAM. CPU and NET can be gained by staking tokens, and RAM has to be bought (and can also be sold).

We are a consortium of blockchain experts with over 40+ years of combined experience growing, scaling and securing businesses technology in Europe. The founding team consists of 5 different European block producer/validator teams from various EOSIO blockchains. In the next two year the total number will grow to 30 teams.

Europechain uses EOSIO because we believe it is the best blockchain protocol for enterprise blockchains. It has the ability to scale very well and has various notable features such as accounts, a built-in permissions system, and NFT support, which we consider to be essential for enterprise blockchains.

Europechain XEC Pre-Sale

XEC tokens are used to perform transactions and deploy applications on the Europechain Public Blockchain, they represent a percentage of the network bandwidth and holders of the token will be able to use the network resources. Holders who are not running or using applications themselves can lease or allocate their tokens to other users of the network.

Yes, before you are able to purchase XEC tokens you will have to go through our (legally required) KYC procedure.

XEC tokens can be bought using the following guide: How To Participate In The Europechain Pre-Sale.

The base price of 1 XEC is €0,20. However, we are applying discounts of 75% during the pre-sale, reducing the discount to 60%, then 50%, then 40%, and finally, 30%, based on a first-come-first-served basis. For the current price and discount, visit How To Participate In The Europechain Pre-Sale.

Residents and citizens of the USA are not allowed to participate in the XEC pre-sale.

XEC can be bought using three payment methods, namely through regular fiat currency, Bitcoin, and EOS.

Europechain uses the same software and token structure as EOS, and will not change the core code to maintain full compatibility. Similar to EOS, we will be allowing enterprises to rent their chain capacity, with the main difference being that Europechain uses a classic IT industry model and will invoice in normal Euro. Europechain differentiates itself from EOS and other sister chains (such as Worbli, Telos, BOS, etc.) by supporting GDPR compliance, delivering highly scalable solutions, and having the mentioned IT channel approach tailored to the European market. No other blockchain is currently providing this.
The current core team, consisting of 5 experienced EOSIO block producers, will add organisations with 7*24 hour IT operations staff as new block producers to collectively provide the leading European public blockchain.
