As a FIO block producer and a FIO Foundation – Affiliate Member, our mission is to  provide a robust, secure and trusted platform. It is our goal at Currency Hub to support the FIO community through, our interactions with the FIO Foundation, other block producers and through community outreach & evangelism.

Our Mission 

Simplify the crypto-exchange process and make it accessable to everyone. 

Why FIO?

We recognize that having to use a complicated address for every every trade across every cryptocurrency is a barrier to entry for the novice trader.  We believe that being able to use a FIO address for transactions will make our platforms and the user expirence better, it’s that simple.

 

Why Currency Hub?

At Currency Hub  our goal as a block producers is to meet the technical demands of validating blocks on the network with a reliable, resilient and secure platform, while also providing an ongoing commitment to growing the FIO community. Working together, we can improve the entire crypto ecosystem. 

Our Node Technology

We run 100% bare metal servers located entirely within the United States.  Our servers are equipped with the very latest AMD technology with  Ryzen 5 3600X – 6 cores at 3.8GHz which when combined with the speed of NVMe SSD storage, and water cooling guarantees optimal performance.

What is a Block Producer?

Block producers (BPs) are the decentralized entities governing the FIO blockchain. FIO uses a mechanism called Delegated Proof of Stake (DPoS) to come to an agreement on blocks; which transactions are applied to the blockchain, and, as a result, which state or data is stored in the blockchain. For a block producer to produce blocks, those who hold FIO tokens must vote for them. The more tokes a person has, the more influence their votes have on the block provider selection process. The process is continual. Every 63 seconds, the FIO blockchain nodes reschedule the block producers based on the votes accumulated until that point. The top 21 are then selected to produce blocks. Block producers are rewarded for their efforts and they need to be reliable and trustworthy. Having a solid reputation is key to being a successful block producer. It is our goal at Currency Hub to support the FIO community through, our interactions with the FIO Foundation, other block producers and through community outreach & evangelism. We would like thank everyone who has voted for us, your continued support is very much appreciated.

Who is FIO?

+ Details

The Foundation for Interwallet Operability, is a consortium of blockchain organizations and community members supporting the ongoing development, integration, and promotion of the FIO Protocol.

/

The FIO protocol

+ Details

The FIO Protocol is a decentralized service layer that bridges the gap between crypto endpoints such as wallets, exchanges, crypto payment processors, and any other application in which crypto assets are held and/or transferred.

The FIO Protocol is not a wallet. Rather, it integrates into existing products as a usability layer that creates an improved, homogeneous user experience for all blockchain tokens and coins by providing a layer of data and confirmations about transactions on other blockchains. The FIO Protocol does not compete with, integrate with nor interfere with any other blockchain. And it does not send transactions to or from other blockchains. Technically speaking, other blockchains are not aware of the FIO Protocol’s existence.

w

goals of the FIO Protocol

+ Details

From the Foundation: The FIO Protocol reimagines and enables a better way of sending and receiving blockchain-based value, regardless of the wallet, exchange, token or coin used. This is achieved in a manner which is:

  • Human-meaningful: allows users to initiate transactions using human-readable and memorable identifiers like “john@edgewallet” or “jane@gold”

  • Decentralized: powered by a public blockchain that does not require a centralized solution of a trusted third party

  • Secure: enables transactions to be exchanged between parties in a secure way. All FIO Protocol transactions require a FIO private key, which is stored in the user’s wallet

  • Private: sensitive counter-party information, including public addresses and metadata, can be encrypted on the blockchain

  • Interoperable: once integrated into a wallet, the FIO Protocol works with any blockchain and cryptocurrency without any integration to those chains

  • eCommerce ready: enables request for payment functionality (i.e. for wallet-to-wallet order cart presentation) along with robust, immutable and private metadata for every transaction and simple refund processes
