Layer 1 Built for Modularity
Built on RISC-V and secured by Proof-of-Work, CKB is the most flexible and interoperable Layer 1 in the blockchain industry. It serves as the ultimate foundation of Nervos, a modular blockchain network built from the ground up to ensure outstanding security, decentralization, flexibility, and interoperability.
Supreme Security and Decentralization
CKB leverages the battle-tested Proof-of-Work consensus algorithm to ensure exceptional security and decentralization under all conditions. It is truly decentralized, permissionless, and uniquely resistant to capture by adversarial actors.
Unmatched Flexibility and Interoperability
CKB is the only blockchain on the market that supports all cryptographic primitives. It can seamlessly interoperate with all heterogeneous blockchains and anchor all types of sidechains, state channels, and Layer 2 networks. Moreover, it comes with protocol-level account abstraction by default, enabling decentralized applications boasting unmatched user experience.
CKB leverages a novel tokenomic model that aligns the interests of all Nervos participants and stakeholders. It ensures the miners are paid for providing security in perpetuity, while token holders are protected from inflation.
Nervos was designed as a modular blockchain network from the get-go, meaning it can scale to millions of transactions per second through many diverse Layer 2 networks without sacrificing security or decentralization. CKB offers pristine security, while the Layer 2 networks built on top ensure unbounded scalability.
