Nuson Chain

What is Nuson Chain?

Nuson Chain brings EVM-compatible programmability and native cross-chain communication with Nuson Chain using an innovative consensus of Proof of Authority(PoA)

Why is Nuson Chain designed as a separate chain from Nuson Chain?

The execution of a Smart Contract may slow down the exchange function and add non-deterministic factors to trading. Even if that compromise could be tolerated, it might be a straightforward idea to introduce a new Virtual Machine specification based on Tendermint, based on the current underlying consensus protocol and major RPC implementation of Nuson Chain. But all these will increase the learning requirements for all existing dApp communities, and will not be very welcomed.

How does Nuson Chain work? What is the architecture and consensus used?

Nuson Chain relies on a system with Proof of Authority (PoA) consensus that can support short block time and lower fees.

There will be fewer validators on Nuson Chain testnet.

Can you tell more about Proof of Staked Authority(PoSA)? What is it?

PoSA is a combination of PoA and PoS. Blocks are produced by a limited set of validators, they are elected in and out based on a staking based governance. Validators take turns to produce blocks in a PoA manner

What are the benefits for developers to build on Nuson Chain?

  • EVM-compatible: Nuson Chain supports all the existing Ethereum tooling Fast block time, cheaper cost
  • Native cross-chain trasfer & communication: NSC DEX remains a liquid venue of exchange of assets on Nuson Chain and Nuson Chain"

What are the benefits for developers to build on Nuson Chain?

Nuson Chain opens the gate for users to take advantage of the fast transferring and trading

What make Nuson Chain different?

Key Innovations:

  • Proof-of-authority Consensus

  • Native Cross-Chain Communication

  • Expand the use cases of NSC token

Nuson Chain is EVM-compatible. What does that mean?

EVM means Ethereum Virtual Machine. Any smart-contract written to run in EVM can be easily ported to Nuson Chain.

Can developers make hybrid Dapps using both Nuson Chain and Nuson Chain in one single Dapp?

Yes, with the help of native cross-chain functions
