About Chia


Say hello to Chia (XCH)

Freshly launched in May 2021, Chia is one of the world’s leading eco-friendly alternative coins on the market. Rather than being powered like traditional cryptocurrencies that require expensive single-use hardware with incredible amounts of electricity, Chia Coin offers a fair, eco-friendly, and solid foundation for an even stronger blockchain for the future.

More possibilities, less energy

As a native token from the Chia Network, Chia lives through a fresh consensus algorithm called Proof of Space and Time – a powerfully sustainable alternative to the Proof of Work algorithm that Bitcoin, Litecoin, Monero, and other large-cap cryptocurrencies use. With this new algorithm, miners are rewarded for how much unused disc space they make available – rather than the intense amount of energy they are able to use up. Traditional mining has transformed itself into an energy pump, sometimes causing blackouts in hubs like Iran and China.
