Tezos was created with a self-governing principle in mind. Anyone who owned the Tezos coin, XTZ, would be able to vote on changes to Tezos rules, and any decisions made would automatically make the software update itself accordingly. This process reduced the chance of forking the cryptocurrency, the process where two separate assets are created from one, each with different prices and characteristics.
Tezos crypto implemented a process called "banking", where users agreed to lock up their owned XTZ in special contracts. Thus they gained the ability to vote on the software changes.
Using the Tezos software, developers can run custom programming logic (smart contracts) and design new products and decentralized applications (dApps).
Along with the traditional proof-of-stake, Tezos also uses a consensus called liquid proof-of-stake (LPoS).
