Bytom coin also allow assets from other blockchain to be able to interact with those assets from the main chain.Bytom coin can also be used to enable different companies created on Bytom platform to be able to issue the dividend earned to several share holders of those companies. Different Dapps created on Bytom network can also use Bytom coin to pay for transaction of those Dapps while running over there as well as to use the coin to create and issue the token of their created Dapps. Bytom coin can also be used to pay for transaction for transferring Bytom coin from one smart contract address to another as well as for swapping the issued tokens on the platform to Bytom coin. Miners of Bytom coin can also use the Bytom coin to purchase different mining hardware. Since Bytom has another third layer, stakers can also stake the Bytom coin on the Bystack so that those coins are used to secure the Bytom network much further thus in return they also receive reward for that.

Their main motive for creating Bytom coin was to solve the problem of scalability where they were able to make the blockchain of the coin to have three layers, the layer for creating Dapps, the layer for issuing other tokens and the layer for recording transaction thus making it a very much secured coin.

Process of creating Bytom coin


  Just like other cryptocurrencies like bitcoin and Ethereum, most of the Bytom coin is  released through the mining process using electricity power ,internet connection and computing power of GPU and ASICS hardware. The algorithm used in the mining process is Tensority. After every 2 minute, 412 coins is being added to the Bytom network which is shared among the miners. The key participants are ; miners and mining pool. The miners can either choose to become solo miner which is less rewarding or can join a mining pool which is more rewarding. As a miner on the mining pool, the more computing power of GPU or ASICS you share the more reward you receive. The new coins added on the Bytom block as well as the fees charged in verifying any block transaction on the Bytom network will be shared to all miners based on the computing power they share. Here is how the Bytom mining process looks like;

Since bytom added a new layer called vapor in order to make the Bytom network much more secured, it was able to become a proof of stake also. As a proof of stake coin, the two key participants are the stakers and block producers. The role of the stakers will be to lease at least 2 Bytom coin to any of the verified block producer thus in return they will be able to receive reward of up to 5% the whole year. The more you stake the more reward you receive. As a block producer, you need to have atleast 1,000,000 coin in your staking wallet and  a 24 hour internet connection. As a block producer, you will use the leased coin to verify any block added to the network thus you receive the transaction fees which will be distributed to several stakers based on their staking amount. The maximum number of block producers to take part on this is 36 while the minimum amount of period that you should lock your coin to any of these block producer so that you can be entitled to receive reward should be 20 days.
