Hybrid Blockchain

A hybrid blockchain combines benefits of public and private blockchains: an application or service can be hosted on an independent permissioned blockchain while leveraging a public blockchain for security and settlement. It lets application developers get the best of immutability and trust from a permissionless public network while still retaining the benefits of control and performance provided by a permissioned blockchain.

AERGO Chain

The AERGO Chain is a new clean-room implementation of a high-performance and highly scalable blockchain protocol. It includes a number of advanced designs to mitigate key issues currently experienced with existing public and private blockchain protocols.

It includes a lightning-fast smart contract engine with advanced features and frameworks such a distributed version and concurrency control. The AERGO Chain will support parallel throughput networking fabric as well as multi-thread architecture for multi-core and ultra-fast cached memory computer environments.

The AERGO platform ecosystem consists of interconnected, use-case specific blockchains based on the same standardized protocol, divided into two layers: the main network, the permissionless public base-layer blockchain, and layer two, independent permissioned blockchains dedicated towards specific applications and services.

Main Network

The AERGO main network is a permissionless public platform for running fast and scalable blockchain applications in the cloud. It is secured by a Byzantine Fault-Tolerant Delegated Proof of Stake (BFT-DPOS) consensus model.

It includes a lightning-fast smart contract engine with advanced features and frameworks such a distributed version and concurrency control. The AERGO Chain will support parallel throughput networking fabric as well as multi-thread architecture for multi-core and ultra-fast cached memory computer environments.

Sidechains

In order for application and service developers to leverage the immutability and inherent security provided by the permissionless public network while still being able to practically run an application, they are able to deploy custom permissioned private or public sidechains based on the AERGO Chain protocol.

Merkle Bridge

AERGO uses the Merkle Bridge for interchain communication. The Merkle Bridge is an interoperability protocol optimized for bridging assets and information between blockchains on the AERGO platform.

Named Account

AERGO contains a name service to translate addresses into easy to remember short names. One name maps to exactly one address. Names are currently fixed to a length of 12 characters. Names include an owner and a destination.

DAO

Token holders on the AERGO main network will have the option to stake their tokens and vote on proposals put forth by the block producers. These proposals may look to steer the direction of development of the AERGO Organization’s Tech Committee and tune network parameters.
