Hardware nodes in the Node.sys blockchain
The operation of the native blockchain network of the Node.sys platform, in which all user interactions are recorded, will be provided by Node.sys hardware nodes - microcomputers of our own design distinguished by their compact size, simple design, and minimal levels of power consumption.
We know what you're thinking: "How can devices with such modest characteristics support the operation of a large and extensive blockchain network, and how safe and effective can this possibly be?" Well, we've got it all figured out! And here we will share all the juicy details with you.
The native blockchain of the Node.sys platform is based on the Proof-of-Stake (PoS) consensus algorithm which uses the sharding mechanism, and post-quantum encryption technologies are used to protect data. This provides two main benefits:
Safety. We use the most advanced protocols and are several steps ahead of the game for the predicted boom in the development of quantum computers. All transactions on the Node.sys blockchain are protected by post-quantum signatures.
Environmental friendliness. The PoS algorithm does not require large computing power. Additionally, the sharding mechanism, i.e. breaking up the network into separate segments referred to as shards, helps to reduce the load on the nodes. As a result, requirements for nodes are reduced to a minimum.
This is how we create all the conditions necessary to run the blockchain on hardware nodes - devices with minimal technical characteristics, but all the necessary functionality.
