By QuintoTrader | Crypto Street | 4 Sep 2019

Loom coin is a native cryptocurrency created on top of Ethereum blockchain  network platform whose transaction takes place from one peer to another without involvement by the government thus is being considered to be a decentralized asset. Loom Coin was mainly created to enable developers to be able to use it to pay for their Dapp being hosted and created on the Loom network.Loom coin can also enable developers or users to be able to lock their coins in order to secure the Loom mainet, plasmaChain.  This makes the Loom coin a staking coin. As a staking coin, it connects delegators and validators. Delegators can delegate their coins to the verified validators for a given period of time .The validators uses the coin to secure the Loom mainnet, the PlasmaChain. In return, they receive reward which are distributed to delegators based on the amount leased. The reward can sum up to 20% P.A. Loom coin was mainly created to target game developers as well as financial industries. All Dapps created on the loom network can be integrated to several blockchains such as Ethereum, EOS, TRON and many more.

Founder Of Loom coin

Loom Cryptocurrency was created by James Duffy  who is an entrepreneur and a technologist with the main objective of allowing easy scalability and creation of Dapp applications on the Loom network. James Duffy also wanted to make the coin to become a staking coin so that stakers can be rewarded when their coins secure the network. 

Process of creating Loom coin

Unlike cryptocurrencies like bitcoin and Ethereum which are proof-of-work thus are created through the mining process in the presence of power and internet, for Loom coin, that is not the case, instead,Loom coin was created to become a proof-of-stake coin. During its launch, 1000,000,000 coins were released. Out of this amount, 350,000,000 were issued to the company while another 100,000,000 to team members and advisors. Another 250,000,000 were issued to the public while another 300,000,000 were locked up to be released through staking. In the staking process, delegators assign their Loom coins to the verified validators for a given period of time. The validators receive income in form of transaction cost as well as the new coins of up to 20% pa anum. This income is then distributed to the delegators based on their delegation amount after the validators have taken away the commisions they charged for staking those coins. Here is how the staking process looks like;
