To ensure trust in clients’ sidechains, their status will be mirrored (anchored) to the ASTERI Masterchain. To combine the sidechains in a single ecosystem ASTERI provides the ability to transfer tokens (both fungible and non-fungible) between Sidechains and the Masterchain. A token transfer is based on the atomic-swap model and works with any standard token via smart contracts deployed by ASTERI on the sidechains.
The team has researched supported blockchains and came up with a shortlist of networks, including Horizen and Hyperledger® Fabric.
By writing master chain block number and hash to the Horizen or Hyperledger Fabric blocks, we eliminate the possibility of block data tampering on the master chain and (since sidechain block data mirrored in the master-chain) on any client sidechain as well.
With massive security of Horizen or Hyperledger Fabric chains, ASTERI provides the “missing link” to carry any business logic on smart contracts quickly and securely, for the first time putting together the Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT) transparently and with corporate-grade operational safety.
