Q: How does ALAX relate to DECENT?
A: ALAX is developed and created by DECENT, a pioneer in the industry with its own core proprietary blockchain called DCore. With a focus on content delivery and media rich projects, ALAX is the first fully fledged platform that was created with a very specific goal of bringing quality games to all smartphone users.
Q: Why did ALAX choose DECENT’s blockchain?
A: Apart from being created by DECENT, the DCore blockchain was specifically chosen as it allows transaction speeds of (2000+ TPS), which in laymen’s terms means transfers of under 5 seconds, as well as very low transaction fees and a high volume transfer load. As DCore has a highly specific media focused deployment, media companies from gaming to publishing can benefit from it’s high availability, as well as consistent, secure and green protocols for distribution.
Q: Does ALAX use a public or private blockchain?
A: Proudly a Public one! The main goals of ALAX is to bring transparency and trust between buyers and sellers on the marketplace. When you want to establish a lasting P2P (peer-to-peer) relationship, using a public blockchain is the only way to go.
Q: Why are there two tokens and what will these tokens be used for?
A: ALAX has two issued tokens – ALX and AIA. The AIA token is used directly in the platform (app store and ALAX Pay) to pay for content (games and in-app purchases), as well as pay-outs for developers. Each AIA token is pegged to the USD fiat, at $1 USD, hence no volatility in pricing. The ALX utility token is used to acquire AIA tokens on the ALAX exchange. As the AIA value will be pegged to FIAT, only ALX can be accessible on public exchanges. AIA/ALX value will be set according to ALX/FIAT value on major public exchanges. To ensure market demand for ALX, there will be an attractive discount on AIA purchases using ALX tokens (Currently set at a 10% bonus subject to terms, conditions and availability) .
Q: What are the exchanges where I can buy and trade ALX tokens?
A: ALX is listed on Coinbene and ETHoutlet, with many more exchanges in discussion for release.
Q: What is the current ALX value on an exchanges?
A: We do not have any power over the exchange rates at which the ALX token is traded. The value of the ALX token depends solely on market movement (supply and demand). Our focus is always on creating the best user experience possible, which will certainly assists in improving a stable and high value token.
