CSPR

About CSPR

CSPR is the native token of the Casper Network, a pioneering platform for smart contracts based on speed, flexibility and the same "Casper CBC" protocols that underpin Ethereum's transformation to the Proof-of-Stake (PoS) consensus, only that slightly different.

In essence, Casper could be described as a public, business-centric PoS blockchain, but with several unique features.

Complex in design (by startup CasperLabs, co-founded in 2018 by Medha Parlikar, a veteran software engineer), the network framework is deliberately generic - like Ethereum, the underlying "layer 1 blockchain architecture is primary." Therefore, although it is abstract enough to be super versatile, it is also flexible for the future, that is, Casper is aimed at business developers with an eye to building / solving a future "Web3.0 ", in which the Internet evolves towards something much more decentralized, intuitive and interconnected.

Quick facts:

* In blockchain lingo, Casper is actually a specific art term, referring to the major components of multi-year open-source research and development projects.

* CasperLabs' Casper network is considered the first blockchain built with the Correct-by-Construction (CBC) consensus mechanism, which CasperLabs has modified and christened Highway; It is said to be inspired by Casper CBC research, led by Ethereum developer Vlad Zamfir, which aims to enable that larger, well-known blockchain to shift to a more energy-efficient PoS consensus, rather than of Proof-of-Work (PoW), associated with high energy consumption.

* The Casper Network project targets corporate clients who need help incorporating blockchain technology.

How it works: With Casper's CBC construct, consensus-building peer nodes ("validators") generate and pass messages in order to try and reach a consensus on the newly created blocks, which is, to say the least. simple; an even more simplified explanation of the CBC premise comes courtesy of Casper researcher Aditya Asgaonkar: "Only if there is a high enough number of bugs will something go wrong." Validators participating in the PoS consensus mechanism, maintaining the network, are rewarded with CSPR tokens. These can also be used to pay network fees for activities on the Casper blockchain network.

Having started as a dedicated proof-of-stake development team for Ethereum 2.0, CasperLabs went on to build its own blockchain in April 2020.

In February 2021, the team announced that it had partnered with China's Blockchain Service Network.

Casper's mainnet launch was on March 31. Since then, the protocol has announced multiple collaborations, including partnerships with Terra Virtua, BIGtoken, WISeKey, and Lead Ventures. The team also kicked off the launch of DEVvDAO, a platform that issues grants for open source development on the Casper network, Cointelegraph reported.

The current price of CSPR

As of mid-September 2021, CSPR cost approximately $ 0.10 USD, almost double what it cost in July 2021. However, it is still a far cry from the all-time high of $ 1.33 USD reached in May 2021.

CSPR's market capitalization is roughly $ 200 million, making it the 243rd largest cryptocurrency, as ranked by CoinGecko.

During the cryptocurrency correction of May 2021, with the major large-cap currencies losing ground, CSPR, the least known and smallest, was decimated.

Once it fell below 30 cents, CSPR was declining until mid-July 2021.

How the CSPR price is determined

More than 100,000 investors lined up for the initial phase of the CSPR pre-sale on CoinList and at the time (between late March and early April 2021) it was one of the platform's most successful initial token launches, Cointelegraph reported. at the time.

Early investors were able to buy CSPR for an offer price of $ 0.03 but were subject to lock-in periods of 6 and 12 months.

The initial offering of CSPR in circulation: 400 million CSPR.

The currency is designed to be inflationary; CSPR's maximum bid (such as ETH) has not been defined. The goal is for block rewards to incentivize participation with algorithmically created future tokens to reward validators, ideally with (like ETH) single-digit annual inflation.

Okex, when describing the tokenomics of CSPR, refers to the fact that the price depends on increasing demand for the digital currency.

The inflation of the CSPR supply will gradually decrease against the number of coins in circulation.

What the bulls say

*The project was introduced in order to solve what enterprise blockchain solutions face as they attempt to sustain the global acquisition of the company without making any notable sacrifices in scalability, security, or speed, said Mehardeep Singh of TechStory.

"For an organization to achieve these goals, the Casper blockchain provides users with some features including upgradeable smart contracts that help reduce the need for costly, complex migration processes and quickly patch any vulnerability in the system. "

What the bears say

* CSPR is risky and could fall dramatically in the next 12 months, according to the forecasting system of WalletInvestor.com.
