Electrons (ELEC) — the mining reward token

When miners direct computational power to the ION blockchain, they are rewarded in Electron tokens.

With the release of ION 5, Proof of Work mining is an integral part of the ION protocol. ION now uses a hybrid security protocol: Proof of Work (mining) and Proof of Stake reinforce each other to fortify the chain.
