About SKALE Network:

SKALE is an elastic blockchain network that gives developers the ability to easily provision highly configurable fully decentralized chains that are instantly compatible with Ethereum. SKALE uses the $SKL token, a hybrid use token which represents the right to work in the network as a validator, stake as a delegator, or access a share of its resources. SKALE chains can execute sub-second block times, run over 2,000 tps on every chain, and run full-state smart contracts in addition to decentralized storage, and machine learning in EVM.  With offices in San Francisco, CA and Kharkiv, Ukraine, SKALE early supporters include top blockchain VCs such as Arrington XRP Capital, Blockchange, ConsenSys Labs, Hashed, HashKey, Floodgate, Multicoin Capital, Recruit Holdings, and Winklevoss Capital. The SKALE Network is supported by over 46 validators orgs globally including Blockware, ConsenSys, Certus.One, Chorus One, Dokia, Figment Networks, Hashed, Staked, StakewithUs, and Stake X, as well as key infrastructure player Bison Trails.
