Unique UX-enabling Features
Enable frictionless dapps. Users almost cannot even notice those apps are blockchain-based.
Distinguishing between ‘bank account’ and ‘regular account’ to provide extra information and guarantee to applications and wallets, which enables developers to create a dApp as user-friendly as Twitter while enhancing security
Allowing a dApp to pay transaction fees for its users, which make credit-card payment, free trial subscriptions, and in-dapp purchases possible.
Essential Services for Developers
IPFS & external data sources access, privacy-protected computation, and digital identity are at the click of a mouse.
Flexible permission scheme covers frequently-used use cases like ‘forget password’ and ‘two-factor authentication’ as well as complex custom permissions
No longer worried about the assets being lost after the owner dies. 3-step asset inheritance workflow empowers valid inheritors to access to an account after its owner was determined dead.
Protect user privacy by moving sensitive computation to the trusted execution environments (TEE) or a privacy-focused sidechain. Besides, data can also be encrypted by user and shared to selected users. No centralized entity can decrypt end-user data.
Connect smart contracts with off-chain world, allowing 2-way interaction with external data sources, payment, storage, and computation services confidently in a decentralized manner.
Allow users to chat directly to chatbots, a special type of smart contracts from within their wallets. Fun and easy to use. No server-setup required.
Forget about complex addresses, users now can register aliases and using human-readable names to access all blockchain features.
Innovative features, including transaction parallelization, Autonomous Area, and offchain computation, meet the needs of real-world scalable dapps.
Use of Tendermint, the exceptional consensus engine which also powers Cosmos Network and Binance Chain. In benchmarks of 64 nodes distributed across 7 data centers on 5 continents, it can process about 4000 TPS*
Increase the overall transactions processing speed within the main chain by grouping and dispatching blocks’ transactions to an execution pool to run in parallel.
Improve scalability by offloading workload to sidechains or using Autonomous Areas. An Autonomous Area is a special sidechain whose security and decentralization are taken care by the main chain.
Superior Developer Experience
Developers can reuse most of the existing NodeJS packages when making their dApps.
Support advanced debugging features like setting breakpoints, stepping in and out, watching variables, and performance profiling.
