XRD Coin

At the heart of Redstone is the XRD coin that runs on blockchain technology using PoW/PoS.

At Launch

When the point the mainnet is launched, there will be a couple of phases designed to distribute XRD and help bootstrap the network and incentivise early adopters. The initial phases will be based on a proof of work (PoW) / Proof of Stake (PoS) hybrid consensus mechanism with the block rewards and then reducing at set block heights. The PoW/PoS phase will last for around 3 months before distribution continues with a switch to PoS only and the block rewards will continu to reduce by 7.5% every 3 months.
