Modular - Linear Scaling - Zero Gas Fees - Ethereum Native
The Blockchain Network of the Future.
Blockchains should not be difficult or expensive to use. SKALE is the first blockchain network fully optimized for Web3 user experience and security.
Welcome to the SKALEverse
Zero Gas Fees. Period.
SKALE is the only blockchain network capable of running an unlimited number of fast, on-demand, pooled-security Blockchains with zero end-user gas fees.
SKALE enables developers to deploy their own EVM blockchain in minutes with enhanced performance without sacrificing security or decentralization. SKALE is a fully decentralized, open source, and community owned project.
Create a World-Class User Experience for NFT Platforms, Games, and Web3 Applications
SKALE is both interoperable and built in an integrated manner with Ethereum. This integration brings security and reliability to the SKALE Network while also creating a shared revenue stream with Ethereum that brings value to both networks.
Modular + Linear Scaling
SKALE has unlimited capacity. Capacity grows as new nodes join the network. Unlike monolithic L1s new nodes can be utilized to create new chains which increases throughput and computational power across the network. 100 Chains can process 12,000 TPS. 1000 Chains can process 120,000 TPS thanks to SKALE modular architecture.
SKALE is a multichain network made of many chains that pool security. SKALE Chains don't share performance but share security across validator sets. Each validator node can run concurrently on 8 chains. Nodes are randomly assigned and rotated to create optimal collusion resistance.
SKALE is the most eco-friendly and green blockchain that can run at global scale. Proof-of-Stake consensus combined with cutting-edge containerization enables optimized resource allocation of SKALE compute which means energy is allocated appropriately and never wasted.
On-chain File Storage
SKALE enables dApps to store files locally on-chain which opens up new Web3 use cases. Full websites, applications, and AI/ML technology can integrate directly on-chain. NFT images can trustlessly be stored on-chain rather than in centralized cloud hosting platforms.
Blocks have instant finality on SKALE Chains. This removes any issues from MEV, time bandit attacks, and chain re-orgs which have plagued prior generation blockchains that struggle with latency and slow finality.

SKALE's Expanding Spectrum of Use Cases
The adoption of Ethereum-based applications - and decentralized solutions in general - depends on scaling transaction throughput, transactions per second, latency, connectivity to API-based wallets, cost-effectiveness, seamless messaging between chains, and much more.
Using an execution layer solution like the SKALE Network is highly effective for building and scaling Ethereum-based applications, ranging from games to decentralized finance to productivity, media applications, and everything in between.

How SKALE Works:
Harmonizing Speed, Security, and Decentralization
SKALE's advanced cryptography and pooled security model enables speed and decentralization without sacrificing security, allowing developers to deliver an exceptional experience to end-users free of any gas fees or latency.
Virtualized subnodes & fully decentralized blockchain
Ethereum-native chain orchestration method
10M+ transactions per day per chain
Efficient & high-performing pooled validation model
Secured by random & regular node rotation
Deploy Ethereum-based smart contracts cost-effectively
The Tech Behind SKALE
Leaderless BFT Consensus
The consensus model used for block creation and commitment for each chain is a variant of the Asynchronous Binary Byzantine Agreement (ABBA) protocol, limiting subnode downtime by identifying slow links.
Interchain Messaging: BLS Threshold Signatures
Virtualized subnodes for each chain can validate a transaction signed and committed by the subnodes in another chain using its group signature once it’s published to the Ethereum mainnet.
A Node Monitoring Service (NMS) runs on each SKALE Node and facilitates the performance tracking of a certain number of other nodes in the network. Performance tracking measures uptime and latency through a regular process that pings peer nodes and logs the measurements.
Containerized Subnodes Provide Unparalleled Performance
A unique containerized subnode structure unlocks enterprise-grade performance and offers dApp developers options on par with centralized systems, including elasticity, configurability, and modularity.
Extremely Modular & Customizable
Fast with High TPS
Rapid Blocktimes & Instant Finality
Mathematically Provable Consensus
Pooled Validation Model
Validator nodes are assigned and randomly rotated to SKALE chains by a mainnet contract. Nodes will be removed from and added to one or more chains on a non-deterministic schedule. This revolving process of random node rotation enables every configurable blockchain to leverage the security pool of the entire network on behalf of each chain.
Containerized Validator Nodes
The virtualized subnodes are supported by an innovative containerized architecture that provides industrial-grade performance for dApp developers. SKALE leverages the resources of the entire network for each independent chain for high performance and flexibility.
