How it Works

BZEdge is a fully decentralized peer-to-peer blockchain governed by Validators and Stakers.

BZShares is BZEdge sharing revenue

Proof of Stake consensus: Validators secure the network and get their share of the rewards.

Extended blockchain features:

  • Revenue distribution to Validators & Stakers.

  • On-chain Governance: Your stake, Your vote, Your decision!

  • Instant transactions.

  • Immutable, transparent and public data storage.

  • Solidity Smart Contracts with EVM

  • Burnable fees

  • Flexible inflation rate

  • Inter-Blockchain Communication (IBC) with Cosmos Hub

  • Cross-chain swap with ETH & BSC

Features

BZEdge ecosystem provides unlimited features for end-users and organizations

Validators provide network security and ensure fast transactions. Each validator has the right to mint blocks in exchange of the rewards. Misbehaving validators have their funds slashed and eventually banned from the network.

Fair rewards distribution
Fair distribution

Block rewards are distributed to the entire network of validators keeping a fair distribution even for less powerful validators. Users that can not host a validator have the right to delegate their stake to the validator they trust and get their share of the rewards.

Major network changes are in your hands! Get involved and make sure you vote for what you want and what you believe in or let the validator vote for you. The more BZE you stake the more voting power you have.

BZEdge wallets
Flexible inflation

The rewarding mechanism will adjust to further incentivize or disincentivize BZE staking. The inflation rate will slowly drop to a minimum target when too many coins are staked, and will slowly increase when there are not enough staked coins. On-chain services that require a fee to be used will burn coins.

low cost blockchain
EVM Smart Contracts

BZE will allow Smart Contract deployment and enable all Web3 tools on its native blockchain. Developers will be able to build DApps and DeFi projects at a low cost and with lightning fast transactions by using all the tools they're already familiar with from Ethereum.

Several Profit
Trade on any chain

Users will be able to transfer their funds from BZE native chain to ETH and BSC. A token version of the coin will be available for transfer and trading on all major networks. Inter-Blockchain Communication (IBC) with Cosmos Hub will be available soon.

The Development Pipeline

8 BZE

Currently the block reward is distributed to PoW miners and Masternodes. The miner/miners/mining pool that finds the next block get the PoW reward. Masternodes are rewarded depending on their rank on the network. The rank is calculated by using Masternode age since the last reward.

  • 65% Mining
  • 35% Masternodes

Masternode requirements

Masternodes can be set by anyone and they provide a set of resources to the network. Once the requirements are met the owner will be eligible to receive rewards when his turn comes.

  • 250,000 BZE Collateral

  • 1 CPU (2 CPU Recommended)

  • 1 GB RAM (1.5 GB Recommended)

  • 20 GB HDD (SSD Recommended)

  • Dedicated IP (IPv4 Recommended)

  • 2 GB Swap

Validator requirements

Hosting validators is a full-time job. We recommend you hire a professional or pick an already existing validator from the network that you can trust. Be careful: validators can be penalized if they misbehave or try to break consensus.

  • 1,000,000 BZE Collateral

  • 4 CPU

  • 8 GB RAM

  • 100 GB HDD (SSD Recommended)

  • Dedicated IP (IPv4 Recommended)

  • If you seek to become a validator you should study security

  • Recommended setup: redundant power, networking, firewalls, hardware security modules (HSM), and servers.
