5DAX Chain Documentation

Welcome to the 5DAX Chain documentation site!

Please note that both the 5DAX Chain software and this documentation site will improve over time and is still a work-in-progress.
Be sure to engage with our community channels to stay updated.

Have fun trading and see you on chain!

What is 5DAX Chain?

5DAX Chain is an innovative solution to bring programmability and interoperability to 5DAX Chain. 5DAX Chain relies on a system of PoA consensus that can support short block time and lower fees. The most bonded validator candidates of staking will become validators and produce blocks. The double-sign detection and other slashing logic guarantee security, stability, and chain finality.

Please read the FAQ to get started.

What can I do with 5DAX Chain?

The purpose of the new blockchain and DEX is to create an alternative marketplace for issuing and exchanging digital assets in a decentralized manner.

You can:

For developers, you can also:

  • Run a full node to listen to and broadcast live updates on transactions, blocks, and consensus activities

5DAX Chain, FC boasts smart contract functionality and compatibility with the Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM). The design goal here was to leave the high throughput of 5DAX Chain intact while introducing smart contracts into its ecosystem.

Because FC is EVM-compatible, it launched with support for the rich universe of Ethereum tools and DApps. In theory, this makes it easy for developers to port their projects over from Ethereum. For users, it means that applications like MetaMask can be easily configured to work with NC. Seriously – it’s just a matter of tweaking a couple of settings. Check out Use MetaMask for 5DAX Chain to get started.

You can:

  • Send and receive 5T
  • Explore the transaction history and blocks on the chain, via ntscan, API and node RPC interfaces.
  • Stake you 5T to earn some block rewards

Developers can also:

Get Started

Want to try it 5DAX Chain? Just give a peek at the first few of pages of the getting started guide.

Want to develop on 5DAX Chain? First, read through the FAQ and learn about tokens here.

Asset Management

FRC20 Asset

A token protocol on FC which is compatible with ERC20. It extends ERC20 and contains more interfaces, such as getOwner and decimals. Read the full proposal here:

5T (and Other Coins) MainNet Switch

5DAX Coin (NT) was an ERC20 token on the Ethereum network.
After the launch of 5DAX Chain, 5DAX Coin (NT) is being converted into native 5T tokens on the main network via the exchange platform at, a pragmatic and efficient way to perform the initial token swap.

5DAX Chain is ready for other projects to migrate their tokens to take advantage of performant transactions with more liquidity options and native marketplace features.
More information about how projects can set themselves up for this (via or partners) will come soon.
