Chia is as secure as other proof of work cryptos whilst being less energy intensive. Chia delivers a high quality coin, with the safety and security inline with Bitcoin along with the functional benefit of a purpose built and more secure on chain smart coin environment.

The Safemoon platform

SafeMoon is one of the newer cryptocurrencies on the market, having been launched in the first quarter of 2021 SafeMoon had around 2.9 million holders in January 2022. The token's founders wanted a coin that would ensure “safe” gains. SafeMoon designed its products to resist volatility through offering rewards to its investors for holding their coins.

There are 4 Functions that occur when a SafeMoon trade occurs:

  1. Reflection: 4% of the transaction is distributed to all coin holders. This is in an attempt to lessen the problems the platform is facing regarding mining rewards.
  2. LP Acquisition: 3% of each transaction is added to liquidity. The automatic liquidity pool is seen as an advantage of SafeMoons coins, it creates a solid price floor for both buyers and sellers.
  3. Manual Burn: 2% of tokens are burnt. The burning of SafeMoon Tokens is manual instead of continuous, this is in an attempt to increase the value of the coins for long-term investors.
  4. Growth Fund: 1% is added to the SafeMoon Ecosystem Growth Fund.
