XFUEL™ is our development token and the first added token on the XTRABYTES™ ecosystem. The contributors participating in the development and promotional work are compensated with XFUEL™ tokens in exchange for their work. It is also a proof of concept for the PoSign consensus algorithm by running on a lite version of PoSign which doesn't require miners to secure the chain. As a monetary incentive, XFUEL™ enables the project to pay participants for their time and efforts. Without XFUEL™, it would have been impossible to start and build out the XTRABYTES™ project. XTRABYTES™ did not conduct an ICO, meaning there was no ICO funding available to compensate project contributors. Development would have been incremental at best.

Both XBY and XFUEL serve different purposes on the XTRABYTES™ platform. XBY has been completely distributed and can not be mined or staked. Similarly, XFUEL has also been completely pre-mined, but it is distributed in exchange for development and promotional work. The total supply of XFUEL is 650 million, its circulating supply changes depending on the number of tokens released weekly and also on how many are locked in the STATIC node network.

As XTRABYTES didn't have an ICO, development and promotional work is made possible through XFUEL. The employees and contributors to the development and promotional work are compensated in XFUEL tokens in exchange for their work. XFUEL plays an important role in filling the STATIC node network and also is the only mode of payment for the developers to pay to utilize the revolutionary technology and services offered by XTRABYTES platform.

The XTRABYTES™ platform consists of a series of STATIC™ nodes. There are 3 levels of STATIC™ nodes with each node generating a return. There is a limited amount of nodes available for registration. STATIC nodes registered in 2017 are referred to as Legacy Nodes and they will be given an option to replace a portion of their 100% XBY nodes with XFUEL. All the new STATIC nodes must contain a mix of XBY and XFUEL™ and these will be referred to as blended nodes. It’s important to note that a blended node will earn more than a node containing only XBY. You can see all the network requirements below.
