What is Graphene?
With the potential capacity to process over 100,000 transactions per second, Graphene is a revolutionary Blockchain architecture which makes use of sharding technology and the CASPER consensus protocol. The architecture has been developed using the modern programming language ‘Go’.
Having the ability to support high-performance execution of Turing-complete smart contracts, Graphene can support complex decentralized applications (dApps), business models, and allow the creation of customized shards that are optimized for different use cases, while allowing full interoperability between shards. The potential use cases for Graphene are limitless.
What technology is used?
Although Graphene is an extremely high level Blockchain architecture, it is comprised of only a few critical components, and can be broken down into such.
The components which make up the Blockchain are; a Beacon Chain, Validator Modules, Shard Modules, Relayer Modules and Cross-Links.
