What is FIO? Everything You Need to Know about FIO Protocol

SINGAPORE, Apr 18, 2022 - (ACN Newswire) - Welcome to this edition of 101 article exploring one of the staking coins on Moonstake. This time, we'll be looking at FIO Protocol and its native coin FIO.


A Brief Introduction to FIO and FIO Protocol

FIO (short for Foundation for Interwallet Operability) was founded in 2020 and aims to enable easier, safer and more joyful crypto transactions on any type of token or coin. The FIO Protocol is designed to ensure the cryptocurrency user experience is uncomplicated and lays the foundation for cryptocurrency mass adoption. Long complex addresses have been replaced with user-customized FIO Crypto Handles such as "user@fio" that enable decentralized sending, receiving and payment requests (invoices, order carts, etc.), as well as, cross-chain end-to-end encrypted metadata (the information for those invoices, order carts, etc.) that can work across all blockchains.

FIO Protocol utilizes Delegated Proof-of-Stake (DPoS) to achieve network consensus. Block Producers (BPs) are chosen by users who hold FIO tokens via onchain voting. Anyone can register to become a BP and produce blocks if they receive enough votes.

FIO's Technical Milestones and Why Moonstake Supports FIO?

- In November 2019, FIO launched their Testnet enabling crypto wallets, exchanges and payment processors the opportunity to fully integrate the FIO Protocol ahead of the Mainnet launch.
- In March 2020, FIO Protocol Mainnet was launched and activated by a community of over 21 block producers.
- In July 2020, FIO launched their online store that serves as a proof-of-concept for their e-commerce tech plugin.
- By January 2021, FIO achieved over 100,000 addresses registered globally.
- In October 2021, FIO launched a $5 million Integrator Grant Program to accelerate FIO Protocol integration across wallets, exchanges, and crypto applications.
- In November 2021, FIO introduced their FIO NFT Signatures via integration with Unique.one's NFT marketplace to protect NFTs created on any blockchain.
- In January 2022, FIO officially launched the staking functionality of FIO coin while setting the FIO activation date as 22nd February 2022, allowing early adopters to earn at an early access rate.

Based on these significant milestones, we can see that FIO is a highly promising coin and furthermore, the FIO Protocol is an innovative blockchain project with a great community and thriving ecosystem of valuable products. This makes FIO an attractive and strategic addition to the lineup of PoS coins available on Moonstake, and Moonstake has been supporting FIO staking since February 2022 via official partnership.

How does FIO staking and unstaking work?

As with any PoS coin, you can stake your idle FIO assets to earn passive income. Staking with the FIO Protocol is to participate in the network's operations (validating blocks) by becoming a nominator who chooses the network's validators.

While your FIO tokens are being staked, they remain in your wallet while you earn staking rewards. The Staking method ensures that stakers of FIO Tokens will always earn a positive return - meaning they receive more FIO Tokens back when they unstake than the number they staked. Meanwhile, if token holders want to send an asset that is currently staked, they will need to unstake it first. Unstaked tokens are locked and are unspendable for a period of 7 days. After that, they can be transferred as normal.

How to get rewards for FIO staking--
Rewards are given in FIO tokens and users will have to claim rewards.
