Welcome to XDPoS 2.0

Revolutionizing Trust in the Digital Era!

In the heart of the XDC Network beats a groundbreaking innovation – the XinFin Delegated Proof-of-Stake consensus protocol 2.0 (XDPoS 2.0). As the digital ecosystem undergoes constant transformation, our solutions keep pace with this evolution. Say goodbye to the inefficiencies of the past and embrace a future where trust, accountability, and security converge seamlessly.

The Journey to Trust

In the Beginning, There Was Distrust

Human societies have thrived on collaboration, but historical systems were plagued by corruption and imbalance of power. Enter decentralized trust systems, where collaboration doesn't require blind faith. Blockchain 1.0 introduced us to Bitcoin, a permissionless ledger with unmatched security. Ethereum brought us Blockchain 2.0, offering programmable smart contracts. Blockchain 3.0, powered by Proof of Stake, tackled scalability challenges. But something was missing: a judicial system to uphold the integrity of transactions.

Introducing Blockchain 4.0: XDPoS 2.0

XDPoS 2.0 Credo: Security with Accountability
Our mission is clear – a blockchain is secure when sufficient participation is honest. If security is breached, every malicious actor is identified with cryptographic integrity. How do we achieve this? Through three core pillars:
Master Node Election

XDPoS 2.0 replaces wasteful Proof-of-Work with Delegated Proof-of-Stake. Master nodes, chosen through rigorous criteria, create and approve blocks. A random set of 108 master nodes forms a Byzantine Fault-Tolerant committee, ensuring decentralization without compromising security.

The HotStuff Protocol

HotStuff, our state-of-the-art Byzantine Fault-Tolerant protocol, guarantees deterministic security and resiliency to network asynchrony. Rounds, leaders, and voting rules ensure finality and eliminate forking, giving you a blockchain you can trust.

Reward Mechanism

In XDPoS 2.0, blocks are finalized in a mere 6 seconds, ensuring quick and fair rewards for master nodes. No more waiting, just instant acknowledgment of your contributions.

Why XDPoS 2.0?

XDPoS 2.0 offers several compelling reasons for its adoption and use within the XDC Network and beyond.
Swift Finalization

Blocks are finalized in seconds, ensuring speedy transactions and reward distribution.

Unparalleled Security

Our protocol guarantees security against malicious actors, providing a safe environment for your transactions.

Transparent Accountability

Every action is accounted for, and every actor is held responsible, ensuring a trustworthy ecosystem.

Incentivized Collaboration

Master nodes are rewarded promptly, encouraging continuous participation and network growth.

Join the Revolution

Embrace the future of decentralized trust. Join us as we redefine the standards of security, transparency, and accountability. XDPoS 2.0 isn't just a protocol; it's a promise – a promise of trust in every transaction, a promise of security in every block, and a promise of accountability in every action.
