Xahau is a smart contract sidechain for the XRPL ecosystem that incorporates the useful and innovative features of the XRPL, while also supporting smart contracts and ensuring environmental sustainability.
What are Xahau's main features?
Xahau includes the key features of the XRP Ledger, including the XRP Ledger Consensus Protocol (Previously: Ripple Protocol Consensus Algorithm), the DEX, and the logic of protecting the ledger against spam and bloat by charging and burning fees in the native token.
Xahau is secured by its native token, Xahau XRP (currency code: XAH), and powered by better token economics designed to reward validators and support smart contracts.
How can GateHub users buy, transfer, and sell XAH?
Users are able to either create a new or import an existing Xahau wallet to their GateHub account. Those who already own one or more XRPL wallets are able to import their existing XRPL wallets to the Xahau network. XAH can be traded on both XRPL and Xahau networks and is transferable between the two.
If you are starting with a new Xahau wallet please see more about the first deposit here.
GateHub-issued currencies currently supported on the XAHAU network are EUR, USD, XAH, and XRP. These assets are also seamlessly transferable between XRPL and Xahau wallets by using the XRP Ledger payment option.
Users are also able to enable custom trust lines for unsupported currencies.
Importing an existing XRPL wallet as an Xahau wallet will not transfer or share any balances to the Xahau network. The imported Xahau wallet will be set as a new wallet and its starting balance will be zero (unless previously funded).
