A Customizable Blockchain Infrastructure For Businesses.
Share this article
Insolar aims to be a "blockchain infrastructure for businesses and enterprises". The network allows each business to adopt its own consensus mechanism, issue unique types of assets, and create different functionalities on blockchains.
Instead of forcing all nodes to agree on all transactions, Insolar nodes determine a list of current active nodes and the new "entropy" (i.e., randomness). After that, nodes are assigned to process transactions within smaller groups of nodes by using Domain Consensus Protocols.
From the perspective of end-users, Insolar allows participants to choose between using the public network, its private version, or "hybridizing them".
INS tokens are used for staking, voting, and as a medium of exchange within the network.
