Tezos Delegation Tutorial

What is Tezos (XTZ)?

Tezos is a blockchain designed with an innovative self-amending mechanism that allows the network to expand and adapt to new technologies via on-chain governance. XTZ (Tezos native token) fuels this ecosystem by acting as a currency for transactions, staking to secure the network, and empowering token holders to participate in shaping Tezos' future through voting on upgrade proposals.
