About Conflux (CFX)

Conflux is a first-layer consensus, Proof-of-Work blockchain. Its main purpose is to solve the trilemma problem. There are three basic notions that must be considered when blockchain is created. They are decentralization, scalability, and security. In most cases it is impossible to keep all of them. The Conflux project aims to preserve all three parts without sacrificing any of them. This network was designed for decentralized applications, e-commerce, and Web 3.0. Moreover, Conflux was able to create a bridge between Asia and Europe. With its headquarters in China, it has expanded to Canada and Nigeria. CFX is a native token of the Conflux network. The token has a lot of various functions. It is used as a governance token, store of value, method of payment within the platform. It can also be staked in exchange for a reward.

Where did Conflux (CFX) come from?

Conflux appeared as the Conflux Foundation in 2018 in China. This organization conducted all sorts of research in the area of blockchain infrastructure. An operation center was established in 2019 in Hangzhou. One year later Conflux partnered with the government of Shanghai and the Key Laboratory of Blockchain Infrastructure & Applications with the government of Hunan to create the Tree-Graph Research Institute. Now the Conflux team has more than 50 members from all over the world. So far it is the only blockchain project that is endorsed by the government.

What are the advantages of Conflux (CFX)?

  1. Parallel transactions
    The Conflux network applies the PoW protocol similar to the one that is used in Bitcoin. However, due to the Directed Acyclic Graph (DAG) structure, this system gained the ability to conduct parallel transactions. In general it is able to process about 4000 transactions per second.
  2. DAG consensus
    DAG protocol is responsible for block validation and order in which they are added to the blockchain. Then blocks are arranged in the blockchain as Tree-Graphs. Usually, each block has two ends: the parent and the reference edge. In Conflux blocks also have weight, which is added with the help of GHAST technology. Blockchain with this type of organization is considered to be more stable.
  3. Smart contracts
    This feature enables developers to build decentralized applications based on the Conflux platform. Conflux takes the Ethereum experience to the next level with all the opportunities for app creation.
  4. Liquidity
    Conflux supports multi-chain collaboration. This means that developers can go beyond the frames of the only chain and create multi-chain decentralized applications.
  5. Low fees
    High scalability allows the network to establish low fees. In comparison with Ethereum, the difference is quite significant.

What are the disadvantages of Conflux (CFX)?

  1. Lack of trust
    Though the technical innovations of Conflux look extremely attractive, some crypto users express concerns that Conflux is endorsed by the government of China.Conflux did not conduct a public ICO, which are illegal in China, in order to remain in good standing with the government, and incorporated into China’s five-year plan as key enterprise blockchain infrastructure, Conflux enterprise leads China’s blockchain research and development through the Tree-Graph Institute in Shangahi.Currently Conflux is the only regulatory compliant public and permissionless chain in China, and through interoperability is uniquely positioned to connect economies across borders and protocols.
