What is Velas?

The aim behind Velas (VLX) is to combine the qualities from both decentralized and centralized solutions. The team which created the currency consists of mathematicians, engineers, researchers, cryptographers, and business minded people, who are based in Switzerland. They employ blockchain technology, which enables them to create an environment that is transparent, open-source, and community-driven.

Velas History

The founder of Velas is Alex Alexandrov, who is a blockchain and crypto entrepreneur and investor. It was set up in 2019, where the creators believed that the best to way to develop their blockchain framework was to implement a stack of components from existing frameworks which they can add their own enhancements to. They understand the need to support the Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM), as this is what the majority of blockchain developers use, so they want to create a smooth transition where little learning is needed. They utilised the Solana codebase as a starting point, where they developed it into their own, and gave them the opportunity to create a variety of technology within the framework, which has now made them a strong competitor within the market.
