Zero Gas Fees. Forever

SKALE is a limitlessly scalable, fast, on-demand blockchain network with zero gas fees, allowing quick deployment of interoperable EVM-compatible chains without compromising security or decentralization.

SKALE is a fully decentralized, open-source, community-owned network.

Create a World-Class User Experience for Games, NFT Platforms, and Web3 Applications

Ethereum Native

Native integration with Ethereum boosts security, reliability, and fosters a shared revenue stream, bringing value to both networks.


Network capacity increases as new nodes join the network, allowing for limitless scalability. 100 chains = 39,770 TPS; 1000 chains = 397,700 TPS, etc.

Shared Security

SKALE is a multichain network with shared security, but not shared performance; each node runs 8 chains, randomly rotated for collusion resistance.


SKALE is an eco-friendly blockchain using PoS and efficient containerization to optimize resource allocation of SKALE compute, reducing waste.

On-chain File Storage

On-chain file storage for Dapps enables full websites, AI/ML integration, and trustless on-chain NFT image storage.

Instant Finality

Instant block finality on SKALE prevents MEV, time bandit attacks, and re-orgs, solving latency and slow finality plaguing other blockchains.

SKALE Zero Gas Fee Model vs. Other Blockchains

SKALE has an architecture that was specifically built to eliminate the burden of gas fees and create a better user experience. Developers and dApps pay chain fees instead of users paying gas fees on individual transactions. Validators are then rewarded monthly by performance, rather than per block.

How SKALE Works

Harmonizing Speed, Security, and Decentralization

Advanced cryptography combined with pooled security offers speed and decentralization without sacrificing security, enabling developers to provide a fast and free user experience.

Virtualized subnodes & decentralized blockchain

Ethereum-native chain orchestration method

10M+ transactions per day per chain

High-performing pooled validation model

Secured by random & regular node rotation

Easily deploy Ethereum-based smart contracts

The Tech Behind SKALE

Leaderless BFT Consensus

Leaderless BFT Consensus

SKALE's block creation uses a variant of ABBA protocol, limiting subnode downtime by detecting slow links in its consensus model.

Interchain Messaging

Interchain Messaging: BLS Threshold Signatures

Virtualized subnodes validate cross-chain transactions using group signatures once published to Ethereum mainnet.

Node Monitoring

Node Monitoring

Each SKALE Chain's node monitoring service tracks others' performance, measuring uptime and latency by regularly pinging and logging peer nodes.

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.

Security Protocol

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.

Node Architecture

Containerized Validator Nodes

The virtualized subnodes are supported by an innovative containerized architecture that provides industrial-grade performance for decentralized application developers. SKALE's high performance and flexibility come from leveraging the resources of the entire network for each independent chain.
