Qu’est-ce que Celestia ?

Celestia is a modular blockchain network, meaning it is divided into several layers, each with a specific function. This modular architecture allows Celestia to achieve scalability, decentralization, and enhanced security.

The modularity of Celestia comes with several advantages:

  • Scalability: The consensus layer and the storage layer are designed to be scalable, allowing Celestia to process a large number of transactions.
  • Decentralization: The consensus layer is stake-based, making it highly decentralized.
  • Security: The consensus layer and the storage layer are designed to be secure, enabling Celestia to resist attacks.

Celestia can be used for a variety of applications, including financial applications such as payments, loans, and investments, digital identity applications such as ID cards and e-passports, and supply chain management applications such as product tracking and raw material procurement.


Celestia is an ambitious project aiming to revolutionize blockchain architecture. The modularity of Celestia enables it to achieve scalability, decentralization, and enhanced security. This makes it a promising platform for a variety of applications.

Quelle est l’utilité du jeton TIA ?

TIA tokens are the native tokens of the Celestia blockchain. They have several utilities, including:

  • Participating in consensus: TIA tokens are used to participate in Celestia’s stake-based consensus mechanism. Network validators need to stake TIA tokens to have a chance of validating blocks and receiving rewards.
  • Paying transaction fees: TIA tokens are used to pay transaction fees on the Celestia network. Transaction fees are used to compensate network validators for their work.
  • Governance: TIA tokens are used to vote on governance proposals for the Celestia network. TIA token holders can vote on protocol changes, development projects, and other important decisions.

In addition to these main utilities, TIA tokens can also be used to buy goods and services on the Celestia blockchain, participate in decentralized games and applications on the Celestia blockchain, and invest in projects on the Celestia blockchain.

TIA tokens are an important element of the Celestia blockchain. They help ensure the security, scalability, and decentralization of the network.

Here are some specific examples of the utility of TIA tokens:

  • An individual can stake TIA tokens to become a validator on the Celestia network.
  • A merchant can accept TIA tokens as payment for their products or services.
  • A developer can create a decentralized game on the Celestia blockchain and sell TIA tokens to fund its development.

TIA tokens have the potential to become a significant digital asset. They can be used for a variety of applications and contribute to the growth of the Celestia blockchain.

Quelles sont les conditions d’éligibilité ?

    • Other addresses / 6,000,000 TIA / 119,635 Users / Min 50.15 TIA
