Welcome to Crypto! Where the gains are high but so are the fees… every time you want to send someone Bitcoin (BTC) or Ethereum (ETH) for example, you have to pay a transaction fee or “gas”.
But what if there was a way to send BTC, ETH or even USDC without paying any of these fees?
Introducing Proton ⚛️
Proton Chain eliminates transaction and gas fees by wrapping BTC or ETH as xtokens aka XBTC and XETH respectively. Once you’ve converted your crypto to xtokens on Proton you can send and receive crypto to others on Proton – without paying gas fees.
But that’s not all… if anyone has tried sending Bitcoin or Ethereum to a friend or tried to pay for goods online, you know how long it takes for a transaction to be “confirmed”. So not only do you have to pay fees for the privilege of sending someone money but it also takes forever to send. This isn’t the blockchain dream we were sold.
Not to worry… the dream has come true with Proton. Transactions are instant. No more painful wait times. Try it for yourself.
How do I convert my crypto to xtokens on Proton Chain?
The number of supported coins and tokens in Proton Wallet is growing by the week!
One of the first things you will notice about Proton Chain is that unlike legacy blockchains, your wallet address isn’t a long string of characters, it’s an easy to remember Proton Name. Nice and simple.
In this quick guide we will go through the steps to get your own unique Proton Name.
1. Download Proton Wallet
Download the Proton Wallet for iOS or Android using this link.
2. Setup your Proton Account
We are creating this guide on an iPhone but the same process applies for Android devices.
First, open the wallet and press Get Started.
Next enter your email address and choose a secure password. Creating a Proton Account requires your email address for verification.
On iOS you will be asked if you want to save this password in your iCloud Keychain. It’s good practice to do this.
Next you will need to check your email for a code that looks like this…
Type the unique six digit code you received in your email in to the Enter code field and press Continue.
Next you can enter your Public Name, this can be your real name or an alias and you can change your Public Name at any time. Please note this is notyour Proton Username, you can choose that next.
Pro-Tip: This public name will be entered on the blockchain and can be seen by advanced users. If you are trying to maintain privacy you may choose not to use your real name here.
Now here’s the important part, choosing your Proton Username.
Your username is what you give to other people to send you crypto on Proton. You cannot change this once you click Finish, so make sure you choose the right one!
Awesome! You’ve officially got your unique Proton Name and you can start sending and receiving crypto using Proton.
Once you’re on Proton you can send and receive crypto to and from other people on Proton without paying gas fees… finally! This is the future of DeFi… strap in 🚀
Staking is the process of actively participating in transaction validation on the blockchain… in simple terms, you can earn interest on your crypto.
The fastest and easiest way to earn interest on your crypto is by Staking Proton XPR in the Proton Wallet.
1. Download Proton Wallet
Download Proton Wallet for iOS or Android using this link.
2. Buy XPR
Once you have setup your Proton Wallet, deposit crypto and buy Proton XPR following this guide.
On the home page of the Proton Wallet app you will see Proton XPR listed under Assets.
Click on Proton XPR.
This screen shows you your Available Balance in XPR.
Click on Add Stake.
There are currently two Staking options on Proton, you can choose to Long Stake or Short Stake. We will talk more about Long Staking in another post.
Click on Short Stake.
Step 1: Using the slider, choose the amount of XPR you would like to stake then click Next.
Step 2: In order to claim short staking rewards you must select 4 block producers to vote for, the decision is up to you and each Block Producer makes different contributions to the network. We will cover this in more detail in a future post.
For now, select the four Block Producers you would like to vote for.
After selecting four Block Producers, press Finish.
Now you will return to this screen and you can see your available balance as well as your total staked XPR.
4. Claiming Rewards
As a result of Short Staking and voting with your Proton XPR, you can now claim daily rewards based on the variable APR.
The variable APR changes depending on how much Proton XPR is staked on the network. To see the variable APR simply click on Update Stake again and you will see it listed under Short Stake.
If you are Short Staking you can claim your rewards once per day by opening the Short Stake panel and pressing Claim Now.
You can only Claim staking rewards once every 24 hours, and you have to wait 24 hours the first time you stake, so you may see a screen like the one below showing no rewards yet. Be patient and check back this time tomorrow!
Please note this guide will be updated as the Proton Chain team release new updates to the Proton Wallet.
We appreciate your vote for Proton NZ in the Proton Wallet!
