What is Hedera?
Hedera Hashgraph is a public distributed ledger system. Hashgraph doesn't use a blockchain like most other cryptocurrencies. Instead, it uses a "gossip protocol" designed to facilitate high-speed transactions.
Hashgraph is the name of the technology itself. A hashgraph is just one way for computers to talk to each other, while a blockchain is a different way. Hashgraph was invented by a tech company called Swirlds, which then decided to create an entirely public version of this technology. This opened the door for anyone to appropriate the technology, which lends itself to applications like cryptocurrency.
Traditional blockchains work by packaging transactions into blocks and then having miners compete to process each block. By contrast, Hashgraph packages transactions as "events" on the fly and then just lets them wash through the network. When you make a transaction on Hashgraph, your computer will pack it into an event and communicate that event to 2 randomly chosen computers in the network. These 2 computers will then communicate that transaction to 2 more and so on. At this point, you will have blockchain-like levels of immutability and trustlessness.
The native token on this public hashgraph network is called HBAR.
