On November 19th-20th, 2019 the Unity — Aion Kernel will be upgraded by node operators in a co-ordinated hard fork. As soon as the upgrade is complete, Unity will be live and a new stake-based type of block production will be introduced into Aion.
As a holder, you can earn rewards on your Aion for staking the network.
Aion is the native asset of the Open Application Network.
It is rewarded to miners and stakers for participating in consensus of new blocks on the network.
It is also used by developers to write publicly to the network.
