A couple of theses:
· Based on the reliable and fast Tendermint BFT consensus engine
· Transactions up to 30 seconds with minimum commission (0.3%, max. 10 ARTR)
· Combined consensus: DPoS (Delegated Proof of Stake)+ PoA (Proof of Authority)
· Transactions are completed immediately after being committed to the block
· High reliability of a distributed network. In the event that 1/3 of the validators are offline or send erroneous data, Artery Blockchain will remain operational
· Written using GO language and Cosmos SDK
· The ability to seamlessly update the blockchain based on the decision of the participants (in the future)
· Modular structure with good module isolation — protection against critical errors at the application level (an error in one module or a failure in transaction processing will not stop the entire blockchain)
· Built-in system for rewarding participants for using and promoting blockchain products
· Voting module for managing key parameters. The community decides together how the conditions for the functioning of Artery will change
· Increased block release time — reduced network and performance requirements for the devices running the blockchain. Due to the soon release of the update, where an ordinary phone can sign blocks, it was decided to lower the technical requirements for validators
· Accessible and documented REST API node for blockchain management
Roles in the system
Incomplete node — a device whose owner has allocated free disk space (memory) and internet connection for the Artery network in the Artery Node product of the Artery Network application. The encrypted parts of users files of the Artery Storage product are automatically placed on the allocated disk space, and with an active connection to Wi-Fi, the traffic of Artery VPN users passes through the device Internet connection. It is the incomplete nodes that help decentralize the Artery Storage and Artery VPN products, for which the Artery Network app pays them weekly ARTR rewards.
Complete node (validator) — a device whose owner proved to have a stake of 10.000ARTR (DPoS) and received status 2 (Leader) in the partner program (PoA). The validator has the right to generate and sign blocks in the order established by the system, for which he receives a reward. It consists of commissions from transactions of the signed block. It is possible to activate block validation in the Artery Node product of the Artery Network application.
Delegator — the application user who sent their ARTRs for delegation. After being sent to the wallet, the coins become unavailable for transfers until the delegator withdraws them back to the main wallet.
