The Blockchain Network Built for
Billions of Users

The SKALE network supports an unlimited number of independent blockchains with zero gas fees, instant finality, and high transaction throughput. SKALE is the first live blockchain with Linear Scaling. As more nodes join the network, the capacity of the network also grows.

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.

Node Monitoring

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

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 dApp developers. SKALE leverages the resources of the entire network for each independent chain for high performance and flexibility.
