- Address tags - personalize and easily recognize addresses of interest.
How does the XDC Network compare to other blockchain networks?
The XDC Network is a fork of GO Ethereum and it is an enterprise-grade blockchain. However, it is much more efficient and significantly less expensive to use with a 2-second block time (with finality) and up to 2,000 transactions per second (TPS), with near-zero gas fees of $0.00001 (or less) per transaction.
How secure is the XDC Network?
The XDC Network uses military-grade security, as well as forensic monitoring to quickly identify and shut down bad actors before they become a problem. Plus, all validating nodes are Know Your Customer (KYC) compliant.
What are network gas fees?
A gas fee is something all users must pay in order to perform any transaction on the XDC Network. Gas is the term for the amount of $XDC, the native digital asset coin of the XDC Network, required by the masternodes that run the network. Gas fees are usually very inexpensive, around $0.00001 (or less) per transaction, on the XDC Network compared to other layer 1 blockchains.
