Frontier Wallet is pleased to announce the integration of the XinFin XDC Network. Fully supporting all wallet features, including support for the $XDC coin and the growing dApp ecosystem. You can now enjoy the native, secure and fast connectivity that makes the XDC network one of the most exciting blockchains to watch, participate, invest and build on.

What is the XinFin XDC Network?

While the benefits of blockchain technology are hardly contested, it is a fact that even popular blockchains like Ethereum have a long way to go before they can match up to the 6,000+ transactions per second transaction processing volume that SWIFT is able to deliver today. XinFin originates from 'eXchange inFinite' purpose-built XDC network to solve this scaling issue, while also meeting the unique needs of global trade and finance. XinFin Fintech created the XDC Network in 2017. XDC Foundation is the not-for-profit entity incorporated for the express purpose of supporting the growth, development, and adoption of the XDC Network through community-driven efforts.

XDC Network is a hybrid blockchain that combines the best of transparent, EVM-compatible public blockchain technology with private blockchains. This allows for building dApps that can take advantage of transparent interoperable smart contracts while also allowing enterprises to operate in private states that can protect sensitive and private information. Creating these private sub-networks even allows for more practical applications at the enterprise level for trade finance assets and also protects your personally identifiable information when transacting with certain dApps.

Users, developers, and enterprises also prefer the XDC network for its energy-efficient delegated proof of stake consensus network (XDPoS) mechanism, which enables hybrid relay bridges, instant block finality, and interoperability with ISO20022 messaging standards, making the XinFin digital contract a very developer friendly option.

Today, the XDC network already boasts the ability to deliver 2000+ transactions per second, at an average gas fee of just $0.00001 USD, with transaction confirmation finality in 2 seconds — all while supporting smart contracts and consuming only 0.0000074 TWh in energy.

Emerging use cases on the XDC Network

There are many exciting use cases emerging across categories on the XDC Network. The TradeFinex P2P trade finance platform was one of the first dApps on the network. After which, various dApps emerged to take advantage of the consensus mechanism, and liquidity management on the XDC blockchain. Some prominent projects include:

  1. Chainfiles — Online notarization service powered by the blockchain.
  2. ComTech Gold — Global gold tokenization infrastructure.
  3. Cyclebit — Crypto payments infrastructure for in-store, online, or on the go.
  4. Law Blocks — Create smart legal contracts.
  5. Ecoin — Social mining with the world's first AI-driven proxy identity platform.
  6. Plugin — Decentralized oracle platform.
  7. XDSea — NFT Marketplace.
  8. XDCNFT — NFT Marketplace.
  9. Impel — ISO 20022 compliant messaging.
  10. Prime numbers — DAO for scholarships for students and the community through NFTs and DeFi.
  11. LedgerMail — Decentralized email service.
  12. XSwap — Decentralized exchange for XRC20 tokens.
  13. StorX — Decentralized cloud storage network.
