What is eCash?

eCash (XEC) was originally developed as a medium of exchange for paying for goods and services and was initially called Bitcoin Cash ABC (BCHA). It was a fork of both Bitcoin (BTC) and Bitcoin Cash (BCH).

On July 1, 2021, eCash underwent a rebranding and several improvements were made to distinguish it from its predecessor. These included increasing the transaction throughput from 100 transactions per second to 5 million transactions per second, reducing the transaction finality time to improve the payment experience for users, and making the network more user-friendly. eCash also introduced a proof-of-stake (PoS) consensus layer called "Avalanche," which includes features such as staking, fork-free network upgrades, and subchains.

The native token of eCash is now XEC and all BCHA coins were converted to XEC at a ratio of one to one million. The base units of eCash are now called "bits" and replaced the unwieldy decimal places of Bitcoin Cash ABC. With eCash, instead of sending 0.00001000 BTC, you would send 10 bits.

Frequently Asked Questions

When you first buy crypto, you’re issued with two keys: public and private.

  • A public key serves as an address that can be shared with other parties to perform transactions.
  • A private key represents a randomly generated number that signs transactions and protects your assets from malicious attacks. If it gets compromised or lost, you won’t be able to access your cryptocurrency wallet to spend, withdraw, or transfer your cryptocurrencies.

To safeguard and keep track of your keys, you can use online or offline wallets. Online wallets, also known as hot wallets, store private keys on systems or devices that are connected to the internet. Hot wallets are easy and convenient to use, however, they come with several drawbacks. Besides being susceptible to attacks and a honeypot for hackers, with hot wallets, the custody of private keys is often entrusted to a third party such as a crypto exchange, which means you never have full control over your funds. The safer choice are specialized hardware wallets that store private keys offline. Stealing private keys from a hardware wallet would require physical access to the wallet and corresponding PIN or the recovery phrase. What’s more, with hardware wallet, you don’t need to rely on third party custodians.

Ledger Nano is the industry-leading hardware wallet. With more than five million customers, Ledger Nano wallets have several layers of security that protect private keys, and hence your assets:

  • Your private keys are stored on secure element chips.
  • A PIN code and a 24-word recovery phrase are required to access the wallet.
  • Ledger Nano wallets have been built using highly durable materials for protection against physical damage.

With full isolation between private keys and your computer/mobile, Ledger Nano crypto wallets keep your keys secure and give you complete control over your assets.
