Title: Getting started with Vite
Vite is the first public chain to implement smart contracts on the basis of a DAG ledger. Transactions on the Vite network are fast and feeless. The broader aim of the Vite network is to bridge different blockchains in a decentralised way.
Created by Vite, the ViteX exchange is the world's first DAG based decentralised exchange (DEX). It does not require Know Your Customer (KYC) verifications, and thus allows traders to remain anonymous. It also permits traders to retain custody over their own cryptocurrency -- the cryptocurrencies that are traded are never held by the exchange. This coheres well with the general maxim of the cryptocurrency space -- "Not Your Keys, Not Your Crypto". No more worries about assets being frozen, misappropriated, or lost!
The website and wallet app will prompt you for an “Account Name” and “Password”. You can enter anything into these fields. As long as you have the correct 12-word mnemonic phrase, you will gain access to the wallet.
