What is LEO (BitFinex)?
Find full description and news on altFINS platform.
LEO is a utility token for the BitFinex ecosystem.
In 2018 iFinex, the parent company of Bitfinex, was made aware it’s payment processor, Crypto Capital, was subject to a partial government seizure of its funds. While efforts are being made, there is no certainty that Bitfinex will be able to recover the funds. To alleviate the cash shortfall, BitFinex announced it would conduct a private offering for $1 billion for it’s token Unus Sed Leo. The token will be used to receive discounts on trading on current and future iFinex trading platforms and services. iFinex will buy back tokens from the market with a minimum of 27% of consolidated revenues from the previous month until all tokens are removed from circulation. In addition, an amount equal to 95% of the recovered net funds from Crypto Capital and 80% of recovered funds from a 2016 hack will be used to repurchase outstanding tokens.
The network is a Proof-of-Stake blockchain, which the team decided will best meet the ultra high transaction throughput, storage consumption issues, and fast consensus requirements of a video streaming platform. The blockchain also introduces a multi-level Byzantine Fault Tolerance (BFT) mechanism which aims to provide the same network security as Bitcoin or Ethereum with much higher transactions per second validated. It’s multi-level BFT designs for a small set of nodes called a validator committee to produce a chain of blocks as fast as possible while the thousands of other network participants, called guardians, can check this chain’s validity. Guardians are a superset of the validator committee. Valid blocks require two-thirds of guardians to validate. Tokens were initially distributed as ERC-20 compliant tokens on Ethereum, but later were exchanged one-to-one for native Theta Network tokens. The Network mainnet launched on March 15, 2019.
