FAQ of MATRIX AI Network

(as of 12 April, 2022)

This FAQ contains the basic information about MATRIX AI Network, and common questions from communities at different channel. It is a working document and will be updated from time to time.

  • 1. Why does MATRIX exist?

    The development of blockchain is held back by three obstacles:

    a) Slowness: Take Bitcoin for example. An average transaction takes over an hour to verify. This is a hurdle to the promotion of blockchain;

    b) Security issues: Whether it’s the DAO attack on Ethereum or the many security issues plaguing DeFi projects, tens of thousands of dollars could be at stake. If security should be an issue for crypto assets, then there is no point investing in them.

    c) Impact on environment: Take Bitcoin for example. PoW of Bitcoin is nothing but meaningless hash computing that creates no real value for society. According to statistics, 70% of the world’s computing power is consumed to mine cryptos, which is a million times Google’s computing power. Bitcoin mining also consumed more power each year than 260 countries of the world, creating a huge waste.

  • 15. Is MAN still an erc20 token? Where can I store MAN?

    Man is a coin with its own blockchain. There are 3 methods you can hide;

    In a web wallet that supports its own blockchain (https://wallet.matrix.io)

    How to create a Matrix Wallet ?


    In this wallet, you can both store it safely and stake if you want.

    How can I stake?


    Users can store their assets in wallets that support the BSC network from the Wormhole tool, which provides cross-chain asset transfer on the Matrix Mainnet, where they can transfer their assets between Matrix Mainnet and other blockchain platforms. (For example; Metamask, Trustwallet )

    How can I send my Man tokens to Metamask?


    It supports Ledger Matrix Mainnet. Ledger can also be stored. The team provides a guide where you can move them manually.

    How can I move my man coins to Ledger?


  • 16. My man tokens are still an erc20, how do I revert them to mainnet coins?

    There are two methods for this.

    • The first method; It is easy and fast. Selling your Erc20MAN tokens on the exchange (Huobi) and buying them from exchanges with Mainnet support. (Exchanges like Kucoin and Gate)

    • The second method is; Participating in the manual swap process that the Matrix team completes on the 5th of each month. Manual-swap guide as below :


  • 17. Will there be a halving for MAN as in Bitcoin?

    There are 400 million MAN tokens in total in the pool of Matrix AI Network. By the time the 3 millionth block is generated (estimated to happen in mid-May), the output will be reduced, and mining profits are expected to drop to 85% percent of the original. Like with Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies featuring PoW mining, MAN output is designed to gradually decrease in order to bring up production cost and the value of MAN. This will also help boost MAN’s circulation in the market. Meanwhile, compared with Bitcoin, Matrix has adopted a smoother reduction curve and a rising price model for MAN.

  • 21. What specs you using for Matrix node?

    It is recommended to have a machine with at least:

    • 8-core CPU (or more)

    • 16 GB of RAM (or more)

    • Approximately 500 GB of disk space per Masternode (anticipating large storage space as it keeps increasing with time)

    • At least 1MB/s internet bandwidth per MasterNode

    Key points:

    a) To launch a Mining Masternode, you must stake at least 10,000 MAN.

    b) To launch a Validation Masternode (used for pools), you must stake at least 100,000 MAN.

    c) Each Masternode must have 2 Wallets A and B associated with it (which you will therefore need to create).

    d) Wallet B will be configured on the machine and will serve as a secure bridge to wallet A where your staking will be located and where you will also receive your MAN rewards.

    e) There are two types of rewards generated:

    - Staking rewards

    - Mining rewards

    Both types of rewards will be sent to Wallet A of each node. However the staking rewards will remain locked as long as the staking is also locked, while mining rewards will be available and transferable at all times.

    f) Synchronizations with the blockchain are particularly long. We will use a file called snapshot so that we don’t have to synchronize everything from scratch.
