Loom is a native coin of the loom network created and issued on the ethereum network. As a native coin of the loom network,loom coin can be used by developers of the loom network to pay for the transaction of their Dapps on the loom network. One user wanting to transfer their loom coin to another user must also use the loom coin to pay for transaction cost so that the validators running the network can initiate the transaction. This makes it to be a decentralized asset.Loom coin can also be used by different Dapps to reward the users of their Dapps.Loom coin has a maximum supply of 1 billion coin and is being abbreviated as LOOM. Loom coin uses a delegated proof of stake consensus.Because of this,stakers can use their coins to vote for any verified validators to use them to secure the network thus in return they receive reward. The validator and the staker are further being explained as follows;

  aValidator

In the loom network,the validators are the one responsible to run the network as well as to validate any transaction taking place on the loom network. In order for them to conduct all these functions,they need to receive some votes from several stakes. The minimum number of votes they should receive in their smart contract address should be 1.25 million according to the loom network.The validator should also have a 24 hour running internet connection and a hard disk space computer of not less than 1TB. The validators will charge different commission fees to different stakers which will be considered as their main income. As a validator,the more voting power they have the more commission income they will be able to receive. You can click on the link below to see several validators on the loom network.
