SecuX adds Full FIO Protocol Support

Creating your own custom FIO Crypto Handle!

SecuX, a well-known blockchain security company and manufacturer of cryptocurrency hardware wallets, has integrated the FIO Protocol in partnership with FIO. The FIO Protocol offers a more streamlined way to use cryptocurrencies while significantly reducing the risk of errors.

SecuX users can now enjoy the benefits of the FIO Protocol by creating their own custom FIO Crypto Handle, which replaces the need to handle complex public wallet addresses. For instance, a user can create a simple and human-readable wallet name on the @secux domain, such as jane@secux.

In addition, SecuX users can create and purchase custom domains and custom Crypto Handles with their custom domains. This feature allows users to buy their last name as a domain and create custom crypto handles for each family member in the format of firstname@lastname.

SecuX has also integrated other functionalities such as FIO Send, FIO Receive, FIO Staking, and FIO token support. With FIO Send, users can easily withdraw and send any cryptocurrency without copying and pasting long string public addresses.

Instead, FIO Send replaces the long string public key address with a simple, human-readable address known as a FIO Crypto Handle, such as firstname@lastname or janedoe@secux.

FIO Worker Proposals

FIO’s vision is to operate as a transparent, community-run DAC (Decentralized Autonomous Consortium) in which token holders have influence over the future of the FIO protocol.

The Active Worker Proposals are managed by the FIO Steering Committee and the proposals are written by the workers themselves.



Block Producers

What is a Block Producer?
Block producers run the infrastructure necessary to run the FIO blockhain, and play a major role in the governance of the chain. Those holding FIO Tokens choose the block producers through vote.

Anybody can register to be a block producer (BP) and produce blocks if they receive enough votes. The top 21 active BPs and up to 21 stand-by BPs will be paid – the pool of the 42 total BPs are determine by number of vote.

FIO can only succeed if the protocol is integrated in to YOUR product & services. If your’e a developer of a blockchain application  implementation details, API Specs, and SDKs, FIO has an extensive Developer Portal.
