Tezos allows token holders to reach consensus on protocol upgrades, including upgrades to the governance mechanism itself.

Key features:

  • On-Chain Governance

The Tezos protocol offers a formal process through which stakeholders can efficiently govern the protocol and implement future innovations.

  • Security

The Tezos blockchain has a high level of security and was designed to facilitate formal verification of the protocol, which helps secure smart contracts and avoid buggy code. Formal verification is the verification of software algorithms for inconsistencies, failures, and errors.

  • Proof-of-Stake

Tezos is a proof-of-stake blockchain with a delegation mechanism. This is a security measure which lets users keep keys in cold storage while participating in the proof-of-stake algorithm. Most of the proof-of-stake machinery in Tezos is roll-tracking and randomness generation. This kind of verification is used all over the world for launching various equipment, and banking systems.

Tezos is one of the acclaimed ICOs in 2017, which managed to raise a record $232 million.
