Tezos uses a proof-of-stake protocol which creates strong incentives for users to actively participate in the development process. Tezos' consensus model permits the platform to upgrade rapidly without the risk of a 'hard fork'. Its asset token is XTZ. You can buy and sell XTZ for any major cryptocurrency, like BTC, ETH, and XRP or traditional currency such as Canadian Dollar, US Dollar, and Euro. Trading cryptocurrencies is like foreign exchange of traditional currencies – you trade XTZ for BTC the same way you trade CAD for USD. You can also trade XTZ to CAD based on the XTZ price.

Tezos is an open-source platform for assets and applications that can evolve by upgrading itself. In Tezos, all stakeholders can participate in governing the protocol, including upgrades to the amendment process. Self-amendment allows Tezos to upgrade itself without having to split (“fork”) the network into two different blockchains. Owners can interact with the Tezos blockchain by holding Tezos tokens (XTZ). For the purpose of validating transactions on the protocol, a process called “baking” was developed. Simply put, it is the act of signing and publishing blocks to the Tezos blockchain. Bakers are a crucial component of the proof-of-stake (PoS) consensus mechanism by ensuring that all transactions in a block are correct, that the order of transactions is agreed upon, and that no double-spending has occurred.

You may want to consider buying XTZ if you would like to:

Diversify your portfolio by introducing a variety of cryptocurrency assets

Explore the Tezos blockchain and become a validator (to eventually earn rewards)

Exchange it for cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin to buy and sell goods online
