What Is Request (REQ)?

The performance and stability of the Request Network are guaranteed by the utility token Request (REQ), which was introduced in 2017. The Request Network itself is a decentralized payment system built on Ethereum that allows anyone to send and receive money safely. It does away with the need for intermediaries to offer a less expensive, more secure payment option that supports all world currencies. When a user creates a payment request, they specify the amount to be paid as well as the address to which it should be sent. The user can additionally specify the payment terms and conditions, converting a straightforward request into an invoice. The user may then share their request to be compensated by their counterparty after this is finished.

Everyone involved can simply keep track of all the invoices and payments for accounting purposes because every step is recorded and saved on the Request network. In order to comply with each country's trade regulations, requests are also integrated with international law.

The counterparty can detect the request and pay it with a single click in a peer-to-peer manner on Request by simply submitting an invoice across the blockchain. One of Request's main advantages is the fact that payments are push-generated rather than pull-generated. Users are not required to divulge any account information. Additionally, the usage of blockchain technology reduces the need for third-party processors, which lowers transaction costs.

Additionally, apps built on top of the Request Network open-source protocol offer their consumers a significant advantage. Users can interact with a variety of financial tools that complement one another. Because apps cooperate with one another here, it is the antithesis of the capitalistic and compartmentalized web2 economy. As an illustration, a business might create an invoice using an app. The payment request is received by a second app, which permits it to be paid. The invoice can then access fast funding using a third DeFi app.

The Request Network uses decentralized blockchains like IPFS and Ethereum to give users more security, privacy, and control over their data. In order to broadcast a change to the blockchain network, the platform does charge transaction fees. To encourage miners to come to an agreement over the state of the network, transaction fees are used.

Request network services are so good that even other coins like 88mph, Aave, Gnosis, Ocean and many other coins are using them for invoices.
