Aston is a decentralized document authentication platform. In order to make the document authentication more scalable, Aston has developed the X-chain, a Blockchain-based technology. The platform's primary objective is to provide users with the tools to send/receive with safety their sensitive private data (i.e. school certificates, medical treatments/prescriptions, contracts, etc) through the Blockchain.
The ATX is an Ethereum-based (ERC20) cryptocurrency developed by Aston. The token will act as a medium of payment for the Aston platform services associated fees. In addition, the ATX token is expected to be available on crypto-exchanges for trading purposes (Coinlink confirmed).
