FIO Protocol Fundamental Analysis
FIO is a utility token powering FIO Protocol – a project initiated by the Foundation for Interwallet Operability and intended to improve crypto usability. FIO protocol does that by letting a user utilize a single easily readable address, which looks like “john@fio”, for operations with different currencies within his wallet, instead of different blockchain addresses for different coins, which are long, complex, and hard to manage. Note that as a service on the usability layer, FIO Protocol doesn’t actually handle transactions on other blockchains, providing just a convenient way to aggregate addresses instead. FIO itself is decentralized and runs on the Delegated Proof of Stake consensus protocol.
To achieve interoperability, FIO is building an ecosystem with various exchanges, wallets, and other players in the crypto space. Integrating FIO functionality enables their users to make easy and quick transactions, payments, and even requests for funds, which the receiver may then approve and initiate the transfer. Assuming the ecosystem keeps growing, FIO Protocol has a chance to noticeably speed up the adoption of cryptocurrencies by making them much more accessible.
FIO tokens are used for the transaction fees within the network, as well as for a registration or a renewal of a FIO address. Also, the DPoS consensus protocol requires users to vote for block producers, with the number of votes assigned to a certain user depending on the number of tokens they possess.
FIO Protocol Live Price Chart
FIO protocol’s price started growing in the beginning of 2021, following a big mainnet update in January and some integration announcements. It peaked in the beginning of April, as upcoming board elections fueled interest in FIO, since one has to be a token holder to vote. After reaching an all-time high of ~$0.57, the trend turned, with FIO price falling to about $0.11 by the end of May. Since the beginning of summer 2021, however, the price has been slowly trending up, fluctuating around ~$0.2, which is why FIO’s long-term price forecasts promise further growth.
