What is Hedera (HBAR)?

Hedera is a coin that uses a unique consensus algorithm. This is hashgraph and is unique in the crypto world as it does not use blockchain technology. Hedera works with a distributed ledger of transactions, also known as DLT (distributed ledger technology).   

The hashgraph is a public ledger that uses timestamp transactions between nodes on the network. A timestamp is a cryptographic proof of when a transaction took place. The hashgraph thus has many similarities with blockchain technology. However, the hashgraph is often more scalable than other consensus algorithms because it uses only active nodes, rather than all nodes on the network. Transactions are prioritised based on Proof-of-Stake. This means that users of the network can use their HBAR to stake. This means they can help the network validate transactions by securing their HBAR. As a reward, they will then be paid a percentage HBAR based on the number of coins they have staked.
