The Team

According to XinFin’s About Us page, XinFin is a non-profit foundation that believes that the lack of government sponsoring hinders a number of infrastructure projects around the world.

Currently, their team features a number of fairly successful names in the cryptocurrency world from across the globe, with an eager interest in spreading blockchain technology across Africa. Most of the team can be found on LinkedIn. XinFin was founded by Peter Yeo and Ritesh Kakkad. Peter Yeo is particularly famous for previously founding which managed to raise a million USD and mined a considerably large portion of Litecoin.

XinFin also has a prominent list of advisers, which includes Roger Ver, Mate Tokay, and Jason Butcher, all of which are heavily influential in the crypto world. XinFin has offices in San Francisco, London, Singapore, and Melbourne.


According to XinFin’s Protocol page, they plan to build what they call the XDC blockchain. They claim that can it will be able to host both a large public network and smaller private networks that operate around it for private companies. The private networks will intertwine with the public network when they need to.

The public network will be open to everyone, including individual users who will be able to make transactions on it, such as buying and selling with the XDC coin. The blockchain will utilize masternodes who will have the ability to open the smaller private networks, and on these networks, information is not shared with the public.
Masternodes will also be able to do a number of other special features, such as run dApps on their private network and will also be able to be a part of a number of different private networks. It should be mentioned that to become a masternode, you need to obtain a stake in the company.

Vision Drivers

Though XinFin says that they are primarily interested in helping investors fund infrastructure projects, they also appear to have an active interest in building financial dApps that work on top of their platform and are ‘fueled’ by the XDC coin. These dApps provide services for the travel industry, supply chain, invoice factoring, private blockchain networks, and also, for TradeFinex.
It is highly likely that these dApps are a way for XinFin to attract more investors to their network, but it may be possible that over time this will become their primary objective infrastructure projects will be sidelined.

Peer Comparisons

By creating a multi-layered blockchain, XinFin is in direct competition with other cryptocurrencies that have come to the public’s attention in recent months, such as Cardano, which uses two blockchains - one for transactions, another for other purposes. However, XinFin sets itself aside from Cardano by offering a public network that can be integrated with a number of private networks.

Use Cases

Perhaps the best example of XinFin operating as a service is TradeFinex, which uses the XDC coin for its transactions. It is highly likely that much of XinFin’s success will be tied to how well TradeFinex performs. Those who are interested in purchasing XDC can download a free ewallet from XinFin.
