BlockchainSpace Questions

Guilhem, [20.09.21 19:00]
Hello guys!

Cassiterite | Blockchain Space,
Welcome aboard!

Danny
Welcome to the Blockchain Space community

Guilhem
Thanks, more than happy to be here

Xiaolin | Blockchain Space
Nice to meet you Guilhem.
Questions prepared by the team
Let’s start.

Cassiterite | Blockchain Space
1. Thanks for joining us. Introduce yourself and your function in X-Cash to the blockchain space community?

Guilhem
I am one of the co founder of X-Cash which we launched 3 years ago.
I am currently leading the finance part of the project and notably the exchanges listings.
Prior to that, I was a trader at HSBC and I also run a market-making business at Flowdesk, one of the fastest growing company in the sector.

2. Tell us about X-Cash project, how does X-cash plan to add value to the blockchain industry?

Guilhem
X-Cash was initially a fork of the privacy coin Monero.

We believe privacy is very important, just like transparency and that’s why we devellopped some innovative features to help to overall ecosystem progress

One of them is hybrid privacy and currently live, which allows to either send a public or a private transaction.

Another one is Delegated Proof of Private Stake that we use to run the consensus of the network.
The community can stake their coins to elegate a pool of 50 delegates in charge of running the network.

Xiaolin | Blockchain Space
Great portfolio, welcome once again to the Blockchain Space community 👍

Guilhem
Our ambition is to add our stone to the bridge by creating innovative tech and help solving the biggest challenge in the industry: scalability, resilience, privacy and compliance.

In the last three years we have run the project in the most transparent manner and we are getting further step by step everyday thanks to a strong and active community of knowledgeable users.

Xiaolin | Blockchain Space
[En réponse à Guilhem Chaumont]
The community is really active

Cassiterite | Blockchain Space
Strictly following
nice use cases

Xiaolin | Blockchain Space
Cool feature, Blockchain Spacers Take note!

Cassiterite | Blockchain Space
We can proceed to the next question

3. Can you share with us detailed information on the $Xcash tokenomics and it’s usecases ?

Guilhem
Yes we have a Max Supply of 100bn token out which around 70% is in circulation.

Most of the supply has been mined while we were under proof-of-work or minted through the Delegated Proof of Private Stake consensus. The remaining coins will either come from minting in the next years or from the supply allocated to the foundation, team etc..

Over the last three years we have been very cautious about spending the coins in our possession. And we have done it with full transparency. For the team’s token, the lock is not time linked but market cap linked which helps in guaranteeing our continuous involvement in the project.

Today the token is used to vote for delegates and stake, and carry transactions.

As we are building a sidechain layer with smart contracts, it will be used tomorrow as a gas with a burn mechanism that will progressively offset and reduce the supply emission.

The token is also a key component in the rest of the ecosystem as we built a few use cases with X-Payment, a Discord P2P payment solution. And X-Bank, an online storage facility that also allows interroperability with the wrapped X-Cash on the Polygon chain.

Cassiterite | Blockchain Space
This is well detailed

Xiaolin | Blockchain Space
Great deal of information and number of usecases

Cassiterite | Blockchain Space
Great project I must say !

Cassiterite | Blockchain Space
4. Who are your partners in the crypto Market , do plan to have more partnerships any time soon?

Guilhem
As we almost developped our cryptocurrency from scratch, we took a lot of time to build the core technology before providing effective use cases.

Right now we are finalizing the layer 0 of X-Cash with the Mainnet of Delegated Proof of Private Stake.
As we relase the layer 1s, we will be able to provide much more use cases and partnerships.

This being said, we started a few months ago to engage with other projects. Recently we announced a partnership with Quickswap to provide dual liquidity mining for X-Cash and Quick users.

This has helped us a lot as we quickly grow into of the biggest pool in terms of TVL thanks to our community and the attraction of the Quickswap users.

We are currently in discussion with other exchanges to progressively list X-Cash on new venues and reach out to new users.

Cassiterite | Blockchain Space
Thanks for that

Spacers are definitely following

Xiaolin | Blockchain Space
Great development, anticipating future collaborations

Cassiterite | Blockchain Space
Here comes the last question for this segment !

Cassiterite | Blockchain Space
5. Tell us about update on what the team at X-Cash has accomplished till date and your future plans for X-Cash ?

Xiaolin | Blockchain Space
Blockchain Spacers while we wait for answers from Guilhem, Get your questions ready for the next segment!

Guilhem
Right now we are in a double battle of:

1. On the technical side, we are delivering new updates on our products and finalizing the layer 0 before the end of the year
2. On the community side, we want to grow and deliver to our community on what we recently promised with a tier 1 exchange listing.

We are at a key milestone where the community traction is higher than ever with a good liquidity on Quickswap and increasing number of new joiners.

In the near feature we are preparing new marketing actions to keep fueling this growth while the new features will be deployed on the layer 0 and 1 of the blockchain.

Our ambition is for X-Cash to become the biggest privacy coin, while still offering a compliant way to carry public transactions. This will be done through a unified community of users and members. That’s why we strongly encourage all people interested to join our ambassadors and contributors program. A lot remain to be built and this is only the beggining.

Xiaolin | Blockchain Space
Thank you Guilhem for the detailed replies
Before we proceed to the Live segment, do you have any important information that you might not have mentioned earlier or useful links that you would love to share with the community?

Guilhem
Do not hesitate to join the project and particularly our Discord channel: https://discord.gg/fHVEDmfv

We are also running a very interesting liquidity mining program on quickswap that will help us reach 1M TVL and trigger a tier 1 listing. Right now the APY is close to 1000% : https://info.quickswap.exchange/pair/0x30167fea9499c11795bfd104667240bdac939d3a

Community Questions

  • Question
    With the popularization of Web 3.0 and the DeFi / Blockchain space, how does X-Cash propose to provide the toolbox for the next stage of the web, with these characteristics: Privacy when needed, Transparency to achieve compliance, and Decentralized Anonymous Governance? , to generate value for investors in the long term?
    You mention: “Custom X-Cash Consensus Designed for Privacy Coins” The X-Cash consensus model ditches the decentralized but unsustainable PoW consensus to propose its own variation of a DBFT consensus DPoS. So did you find any issues with the X-Cash consensus algorithm and what changes or improvements have been made to create a healthier relationship between ecosystem stakeholders, for this delegated proof of private stake?

    We provide interoperability with Polygon Chain and Ethereum world Defi through the wrapped X-Cash and the X-bank.
    The key challenge for us is to also address scalability with the sidechains solutions.

    Currently most investors only care about profits at the moment but ignore the long-term benefits. So can you give them some reasons why they should buy and hold your token in the long term?
  • Guilhem
    In three years, we have seen a wide type of people joining the project.
    Most of the people are in the same boat as us and want to increase the value of the project through the utility of the coin and the technology. The price has and will increase mechanically.
