Introduction
Astar Network's mission is to provide a scalable, interoperable, and decentralized application platform that defines and realizes the new form of the web: Web3.0.
The traditional social structure allows people with authority to monopolize information, and history has proven that these people will bend the rules to their benefit. Even if people claim that their system is fair, it still lacks transparency, proving that everything is still conceived upon pillars of sand called trust. In contrast to this, blockchain provides a decentralized system that does not require a single point of failure and makes a transparent and trustless system. This is possible because blockchain is a system that allows anyone to view, prove, and host with a highly fault-tolerant consensus mechanism. ‌
For end-users to fully utilize the blockchain protocol's strengths, there must be an application that provides an interface to them. Applications that work on top of blockchains are referred to as Decentralized Application (dApps). There are countless dApps developed in the form of smart contracts and chain codes that are deployed on a blockchain, providing utility for various people. However, due to the decentralized nature of dApps, the processing speed is far from fast.
Some features are implemented on Astar Network that is accessible from the links below to solve this issue.
