SXP: review and history
The SXP Blockchain utilizes the DPoS (Delegated Proof of Stake Concensus). This means that there can only be 53 delegates operating and maintaining the blockchain network. These delegates are also known as node operators. These delegates are chosen by the voters who are able to choose which delegate they prefer to operate and maintain the network.
Why use SXP for donations?
Although influencers often find many loyal fans, donations can be a rare treat. That is why every donation matters especially for those influencers for whom donations are the only stream of income. Fees eat into donations and take away a share of them, reducing the size of influencers’ income. Cryptocurrencies can solve this problem by lowering transaction fees and thus letting influencers get more money. At the same time, popular cryptocurrencies such as Ethereum still have relatively high fees. Therefore, it is reasonable for influencers to switch to coins such as SXP which have extremely low transaction fees. So, by featuring SXP donations, influencers will get more bang for buck.
Speed of donations is an important factor for many influencers and especially streamers. Donations enable streamers to communicate with their audiences and the delay in their communication should be as small as possible. Unfortunately, cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin, despite being widely used for the purpose of donations, have long transaction confirmation times. At the same time, SXP transactions take only several seconds. This is why streamers, by using SXP as their donation method, will be able to reduce the delay in the communication with their fans.
Influencers often raise funds for different causes, be it a charity work or the need to purchase new equipment for their music studio. In such matters, transparency and accountability are the key. The traditional donation services cannot match the same level of transparency offered by cryptocurrencies. Nevertheless, there are also cryptocurrencies such as Monero which are not transparent. SXP boasts an excellent level of transparency since information about all of the SXP addresses is available online. As a result, influencers can enable their audience members to monitor how much funds have been raised for their projects through SXP.
No influencer wants to spend long hours on deploying dozens of payment options in order to provide every fan with a chance to donate to them. SXP can become that universal donation solution which every influencer needs. Compared to the mainstream donation methods such as PayPal, SXP does not have geographic limitations and does not require users to undergo KYC procedures. This means that influencers’ audience members can send SXP donations from any place on the planet and without any obstacles.
By deploying an SXP donation gateway, influencers create a new use case for the coin which can be exciting for a certain share of the investors. Moreover, unlike some of the less notable coins, SXP is a popular cryptocurrency and its community is expected to grow taking into consideration its new blockchain. So, it is possible that SXP donations will help influencers to attract some SXP investors and make them their fans.
