5 Year Anniversary Timeline: Main Chain-Sidechain

Elastos’ Main Chain-Sidechain Architecture supports a robust, three-tier consensus mechanism, including merge-mining (AuxPoW), Delegated-Proof-of-Stake (DPoS), and Cyber Republic Consensus (CRC). Elastos’ sidechains also enable the development and integration of critical platform services and tools for Web3, including a Decentralized Identity solution (Elastos DID) and a environment for decentralized DeFi and NFT applications via the Elastos Smart Chain (ESC).
