About Blockchains

What is Electroneum?

Electroneum is a Layer 1 EVM-compatible blockchain, catering to 4+ million users worldwide. The network boasts transaction speeds of just 5 seconds with instant finality and potentially the lowest smart contract fees available. Powered by the IBFT consensus mechanism and supported by known validators (targeting universities and Web3 infrastructure companies), the network is incredibly fast, secure and energy efficient.

What is Polkadot?

Polkadot stands out among other blockchain projects for its focus on enhancing the foundational infrastructure of dApps. It aims to enable interoperability between blockchain ecosystems, facilitating seamless communication without intermediaries. Functioning as a "network of networks," Polkadot utilizes parachains — specialized blockchains with unique functionalities and tokens — to enable interaction between diverse blockchain architectures. Powered by the nominated proof-of-stake (PoS) consensus algorithm and drawing inspiration from the Ouroboros protocol, Polkadot offers a robust framework for building interconnected and scalable decentralized systems.
