Tezos now on imToken

Tezos now on imToken

Today, we are excited to announce support for Tezos. You can update your imToken to the latest version to experience all of Tezos. Create a new Tezos account/address Import & Backup Tezos account View Tezos balance & transaction history Send and receive Tez Delegate and undelegate tez Watch baking rewards and accrued tez On top, we decided to offer our own Tezos baker. You can decide to bake with imToken’s baker or other popular bakers in your wallet. This is special, as we are happy to not only offer the above features but also participate in securing the Tezos blockchain. Tezos Tezos is a decentralized, public blockchain that evolves by upgrading itself. Stakeholders of the Tezos network vote on amendments to the protocol to reach social consensus on proposals, creating a secure and organic upgrading mechanism. The protocol's on-chain governance system, its consensus algorithm based on Proof-of-Stake (PoS), and its ability to facilitate formal verification of smart contracts, make Tezos an ideal long-term solution for high-value financial applications. Learn more about Tezos at https://tezos.com.  ON-CHAIN GOVERNANCE & SELF-AMENDMENT  All stakeholders can participate in governing the protocol. The election cycle provides a formal and systematic procedure for stakeholders to reach agreement on proposed protocol amendments. Self-amendment allows Tezos to upgrade itself without having to split (“fork”) the network into two different blockchains.  SMART CONTRACTS & FORMAL VERIFICATION Smart contracts on Tezos are written in Michelson which facilitates formal verification - a technique used to improve security by mathematically proving that the code works without errors. Smart contracts are used in mission-critical environments such as aerospace, nuclear, etc.  PROOF-OF-STAKE & DELEGATION The mechanism by which the various participants in Tezos reach consensus on the state of the blockchain.  Any stakeholder can participate in the consensus process by putting in a security deposit and be rewarded for contributing to the security and stability of the network. Users who do not wish to participate directly in the consensus protocol can delegate their tokens to other users to participate on their behalf. Current use cases of Tezos French CBDC tests: SocGen uses Tezos blockchain Two months ago, the Banque de France announced it had selected eight firms to participate in its wholesale central bank digital currency (CBDC) trials. One of the eight selected companies is Société Générale (SocGen) Forge, who is using the Tezos blockchain as the platform for the trials. The tests aim to explore the settlement and delivery of securities with a digital Euro. Doubtless, most of the experiments will focus on on-chain settlement. https://ledgerinsights.com/french-cbdc-digital-currency-socgen-societe-generale-tezos-public-blockchain/ Thai Digital Exchange built on Tezos In July of this year, ERX was approved by the Thai SEC to launch a fully-compliant digital asset exchange.

DApps and Their Risks

DApps and Their Risks

What is a DApp? A DApp, or decentralized application, is a software application that runs on a distributed network. It’s hosted on a peer-to-peer decentralised network, rather than on a centralized server. Currently, a lot of DApp are based on Ethereum and TRON. What are high-risk DApps?  High-risk DApps such as Forsage or Etherchain are those which have the bearing of a pyramid or Ponzi-scheme. Notable warning signs include the following: A guaranteed promise of high returns with little risk Claim to be decentralized and fully transparent, while they are not A consistent flow of returns regardless of market conditions Claim they are cooperating with well-known wallets, exchanges, while they are not  Face difficulties when removing their tokens  Get “rewards” with tokens every time someone joins under you Here’s a list of top 5 high-risk DApps running on Ethereum: Top High Risk DApps, Data from dappradar.com Crypto is full of opportunities, while there are always certain risks behind that. A high-risk DApp can run for a long time without many cracks. You may even have no idea who’s the real person behind it.  Please do your own research before investing in any DApp project. And more importantly, never investing more value into DApps than you can afford to lose.  What is the relationship between imToken DApp browser and those DApps?  When using the imToken DApp browser, some users assume that all these links are safe and they trust these DApp naturally. They even assume these DApps have a partnership with imToken. While it’s not necessarily true.  imToken DApp explorer is like Google search but in a decentralised way. You can enter any links at this explorer and you’ll be able to visit under normal circumstances. And you are responsible for using these third party DApps individually. Users have to pay attention to the DApp they are joining and contact them directly whenever you encounter problems. To protect our users, we add warm signs or block some DApps since they are high risks and running a Ponzi scheme. If you have found any similar DApps, please report them to imToken at hack@token.im.

4 Tips to Keep Your Crypto Assets Safe

4 Tips to Keep Your Crypto Assets Safe

As we all know, imToken is a decentralized wallet. What does it mean? It means that the mnemonic phrase and private key are controlled by you completely - you are the only owner of the wallet. We have several tips to help you keep the asset safe.  1. Download The imToken Fans Group channel on Telegram is not an official imToken chat room. Some users have reported that there are scammers trying to reach them privately and send malicious download links. Please remember that imToken team will never contact you via pm, nor request your confidential information. For imToken support, always email: support@token.im To download imToken, always visit: https://token.im/ 2. Backup  By talking to 200,000+ users, we found that most people lost their coins due to the following reasons:  Forget to back up Back up the wrong mnemonic/ private key Save the mnemonic/ private key in iCloud, or any other cloud service Share it with friends or others  Here are some of the recommendations:  After creating a wallet, please backup your wallet offline in time Back up the wallet by handwriting, or use a mnemonic key box to save the backup Double check if the mnemonic phrase and private key are accurate Do not save the mnemonic phrase through cloud, Facebook, emails, etc Do not share the private key with others 3. Transfer  Due to the nature of the blockchain, you can never reverse a transaction once it’s successful.  When you try to send tokens, please double check if the address you copied is the right one, controlled by an individual or a contract. If the recipient is the token contract itself, those tokens may be lost forever! imToken will warn you when sending tokens to a contract address. 4. DApp - Ponzi Scheme  Another situation involving wallet security is the Ponzi scheme. Such projects often use high returns as the bait. The initiator recruits other ‘investors’ who in turn recruit other investors and so on. Behind the high return is always a high risk. Please be aware! Common Ponzi schemes include: Forsage, Etherchain, etc.  Smart contracts are autonomous, and effectively indestructible. If you find a suspicious dApp, please contact us at hack@token.im, our security team will check and add alerts whenever necessary. Although it’s good to be informed, we hope that you’ll never experience the unpleasant experience in the above.
