What Is Stacks(STX)?
Stacks cryptocurrency (STX) is designed primarily to be used as "fuel" to execute Clarity smart contracts. Stacks are also used for other network functions like registering digital assets, paying for transaction fees, and to publish Clarity contracts on the blockchain.
Stacks 2.0 is a layer-1 blockchain that connects to Bitcoin for security and enables decentralized apps and predictable smart contracts. Stacks 2.0 implements PoX mining that anchors to Bitcoin security. Leader election happens at the Bitcoin blockchain and STX miners write new blocks on the connected Stacks blockchain. With PoX there is no need to modify Bitcoin to enable smart contracts and apps around it.
These DApps are open and modular, meaning that developers can build on top of each other's apps to generate functionality that is simply not possible in regular apps. Because Stacks uses Bitcoin as the base layer, everything that happens on the network is resolved on the most widely used and relatively secure blockchain, Bitcoin.
The platform is powered by the Stacks Token (STX), which is used to power the execution of smart contracts, process transactions and register new digital assets on the Stacks 2.0 blockchain. The platform was formerly known as Blockstack, but changed its name to Stacks in Q4 2020 to "separate the ecosystem and open source projects from Blockstack PBC" — the original protocol the company built. Stacks 2.0’s mainnet launch in January 2021.
How does Stacks (STX) Work?
Stacks hopes to extend Bitcoin's functionality with additional features without forking or changing the original Bitcoin blockchain.
It connects directly to the Bitcoin blockchain through its Proof of Transfer (PoX) consensus mechanism, which lets miners pay BTC to mint new Stacks (STX) tokens. Additionally, STX token holders can also stack (rather than stake) their tokens to earn Bitcoin as a reward.
Stacks introduces a new smart contract programming language called Clarity, which is designed to be both secure and easy to build thanks to its explicit syntax. This smart contract-centric programming language is also used by the Algorand (ALGO) blockchain. On top of that, Stacks was the first cryptocurrency to qualify for an SEC sale in the U.S., enabling it to launch a $28 million Reg A+ sale cash product for its STX token in July 2019.
What are the Applications of Stacks (STX)?
Stacks (formerly Blockstack) seeks to power a new type of decentralized internet that gives users more control over their data and makes censorship of content more difficult.
It has properties like "built-in privacy" where data in the Stacks app (e.g. photos, messages, health records) is encrypted by default. Apps will not be able to view, access or track your activity. The user, not the app, owns 100% of all data. Additionally, users are free to move their data as well as transact and transfer your assets - without any app or company permission.
Based on its programming language Clarity, Stacks' smart contracts can create, own and trade new types of digital assets, such as tokens and digital collectibles. By using the Stacks app, creators can also share the value they create.
Stacks uses a hybrid consensus mechanism, which Stacks calls Proof of Transfer (PoX).
