Tezos is a long-running Layer 1 alternative (i.e. the smart contract platforms that emerged after Ethereum). Like Ethereum, Tezos is used to power an array of web3 dApps, DeFi, NFTs and more.
Tezos uses what it calls a liquid Proof-of-Stake consensus mechanism, which operates in a similar fashion to regular PoS systems, but also allows users to loan their token staking rights to others to improve their chances of ‘mining’ the next block and receiving new XTZ. In the Tezos ecosystem, the act of pushing verified blocks to the blockchain is known as ‘baking’.
XTZ is the native token of the Tezos network. It’s used to power dApps and pay for transaction costs, as well as granting governance voting rights to holders.
CoinJar is one of the longest-running crypto exchanges and has been designed from the ground up with security and convenience in mind.
From the quick and intuitive sign-up process, to our lightning fast bank deposits and withdrawals, low fees and user-friendly iOS and Android app, CoinJar is the ideal crypto exchange whether you’re buying XTZ for the first time or an experienced investor.
You can store your Tezos in a hardware wallet or on a trusted exchange. Hardware wallets (such as the Ledger) offer high level security, allowing you to store your XTZ offline in a unit that only you have the password for.
However, exchanges such as CoinJar also provide excellent security, keeping more than 90% of our crypto in cold storage or private, multi-sig wallets and offering our users next-gen 2FA account protection as default.
The best way to buy XTZ in the U.S. is through a trusted exchange like CoinJar. We offer accurate prices, low fees and an easy-to-use, ultra-secure app.
Husband-and-wife team Arthur and Kathleen Breitman first proposed the idea of Tezos in a whitepaper they published in 2014. After raising US$232 million in a 2017 ICO, the first Tezos block was created in June 2018.
The safest way to Buy Tezos is through a trusted exchange with a proven track record. CoinJar is one of the world’s longest-running crypto exchange and has been operating since 2013 with no unplanned downtime, security breaches or loss of customer funds.
We are registered with AUSTRAC and the FCA UK (for AML purposes) and work with some of the world’s largest payment providers, including Mastercard, Visa, Apple Pay and Google Pay.
With CoinJar Instant Buy you can buy Tezos with any locally-issued card. We also offer support for Apple and Google Pay.
The price of XTZ in GBP is determined by the international Tezos market – basically, the price to be found on cryptocurrency exchanges in the UK and all around the world.
These prices tend to be the same (or very close) because any differences are smoothed out by arbitrage traders that buy at one exchange and sell at another.
