SKALE Network & What it does

The SKALE Network is an open-source on-demand Ethereum-Native Multichain Web3 Cloud designed to scale Ethereum dApps. The Network enables dApp developers to access validator-operated nodes' compute power to run fast, containerized, EVM-compatible SKALE Chains. Validators run and maintain SKALE Nodes, providing distributed computing power to the Network. The entire SKALE Network is managed by SKALE Manager, a dApp deployed on Ethereum Mainnet. Network users such as validators, delegators, and dApp Developers use SKALE (SKL) tokens to stake and access network services.

The SKALE validator community represents over 45 independent operators running over 150 nodes, and the SKALE Mainnet has been live for over 120 days. Checkout the current stats.

With SKALE, dApps run gas-less transactions on a Proof-of-Stake chain distributed across 16 nodes, each running containerized EVM. SKALE chains can exchange transactions or messages with other SKALE Chains and Ethereum networks, allowing dApp developers to use SKALE for powering their dApps while enabling token transfers to and from Ethereum or other chains.

SKALE Network uses a unique combination of several technologies to achieve scalability, security, interoperability, and progressive decentralization:

Technology Impact

Pooled Validation Proof-of-Stake

Scalable security model across validators and delegators

Hybrid container architecture

Agile allocation of on-demand composable compute resources across the network

Threshold Cryptography

Supermajority signature signing with ABBA consensus supports Byzantine Fault Tolerance and resolves data-availability issues

Trusted-Execution Environment

Fast block signing and multiple chain support using threshold cryptography

Asynchronous Binary Byzantine Agreement (ABBA) Consensus

Mathematically provable, fast-finality, leaderless, and Byzantine fault tolerant

Ethereum Network

Public, open-source, and decentralized operation of the SKALE Network via SKALE Manager contracts

Tools & Compatibility

SKALE Network is designed to work with all Ethereum compatible tools such as API-based wallets and monitoring and analytics.
