Proof of Stake

Proof of Stake Consensus

Ardor uses a 100% proof of stake (PoS) consensus algorithm. This protocol allows the platform to be extremely energy efficient and not dependent on expensive hardware. It makes Ardor equally suitable for public and private implementations that easily work on any desktop or mobile device.

Multi-Chain Platform

Multi-Chain Platform

Ardor child chains are separate customizable “blockchains” within the Ardor ecosystem. Child chains have their own native tokens and all the built-in features necessary for their specific use case. Enriched functionality, permissioning, or custom parameters can be added if necessary for the child chain operation.
