How To Buy Kaspa (KAS) In India? [2024]

By March 14, 20244 minute read

Kaspa boldly touts itself as the most scalable and rapid layer-1 transaction solution, providing instant validation. GHOSTDAG and PHANTOM protocol, a scalable development of Bitcoin’s consensus mechanism, are two unique technologies that Kaspa employs. The thorough security you expect as a user is combined with the speed and scalability sometimes lacking in traditional blockchains, giving you the best of both worlds.

In this blog, let’s have a detailed overview of Kaspa (KAS) and how you can buy KAS tokens in India.

What is Kaspa?

Kaspa aims to tackle the ongoing challenges related to the scalability and speed of decentralized transactions. Traditional blockchains often face issues such as network congestion as they expand, leading to slower transaction processing times and higher fees.

Kaspa introduces innovative solutions to address these challenges by fundamentally redesigning blockchain functionality. One of its key innovations is the GhostDAG protocol, which incorporates a novel algorithm allowing for parallel transaction processing instead of the traditional sequential approach. This approach significantly increases the blockchain’s capacity and transaction throughput, enabling instantaneous transactions at a fraction of the usual cost.

Additionally, Kaspa is an open-source project, leveraging the collective efforts of a worldwide community of developers. This collaborative approach ensures continuous maintenance, improvement, and innovation of Kaspa’s foundational technology.

How Does Kaspa Work?

The Kaspa blockchain, developed and launched by DAGLabs, an R&D company in collaboration with PolyChain, operates on the GHOSTDAG protocol. This protocol ensures the simultaneous existence of concurrently mined blocks within the network. This approach, previously mentioned as BlockDAG, prevents discarding simultaneously mined blocks.

In contrast to traditional Proof-of-Work (PoW) blockchains like Bitcoin, where multiple nodes worldwide mine blocks simultaneously, only one block is typically accepted. However, the Kaspa blockchain behaves differently. The GHOSTDAG protocol accepts and integrates all concurrently mined blocks into the network in a sequential manner.

Beyond its BlockDAG architecture, the Kaspa blockchain boasts additional notable features, including reachability, block data pruning, and Simple Payment Verification (SPV) proofs. Unlike conventional blockchains, which require nodes to download the entire ledger for transaction validation, Kaspa enables users to verify transactions without downloading the ledger.

Currently, the Kaspa blockchain validates one block per second but aims for higher throughput, targeting rates of 10-100 blocks per second. Its subnetwork support further enables developers to construct Layer 2 blockchain networks, providing an avenue for other projects to harness its capabilities.

Kaspa Tokenomics

Kaspa’s blockDAG architecture and high-speed block generation aim to decentralize KAS mining and enable efficient solo mining even with lower hash rates.

Launched fairly in November 2021, Kaspa had no pre-mining, pre-sales, or initial coin allocations. The total supply of Kaspa tokens is capped at 28.7 billion coins, with an emission schedule following a halving pattern annually, accompanied by gradual monthly reductions.
