HEX crypto claims to be the first blockchain certificate of deposit, a financial tool, launched on the Ethereum network by Richard Heart on December 2, 2019.
HEX or ERC20 token has been designed to be a “store of value” to replace the “certificate of deposit” used in the traditional financial markets.
It is expected to be a boon for the emerging DeFi assets within the Ethereum network.
In traditional banking parlance, the certificate of deposits, offered by commercial banks, provides a higher interest rate compared to the standard savings accounts.
However, to obtain higher interest rates, depositors should not withdraw the funds frequently. As per rules, they cannot withdraw them at least for a month, and up to 10 years in some cases.
These deposits are generally secured by the government, or a central regulatory body, and the investors get an opportunity to earn interest on their deposits.
The certificate of deposits is also known as term deposits or time deposits.
Likewise, users can earn interest on their coin deposits on the HEX platform.
HEX uses the Ethereum blockchain network for transactions, i.e., for sending or receiving HEX tokens and interacting with HEX smart contract, which contains the consensus code and provides the staking process. The platform allows participants to stake their coins or for the issuance of new HEX coins. In addition, it contains features designed for price appreciation.
