What Are AppChains?
The Future of Web3 Scaling.
One app, one chain: the scaling solution that developers everywhere are turning to.
In the past, there were limited options when choosing a blockchain for your dApp:
App-specific blockchains (aka subnets or AppChains) are chains dedicated to serving only one dApp. They are subnets of ecosystems like the BNB Chain, Polygon, or Avalanche. AppChains give developers the best of security, throughput, and customizability without needing to build an entirely new layer-1 chain from scratch.
How they work.
AppChains are sidechains that are attached to a mainchain, like BNB Chain, Avalanche, or olygon. This means each AppChain can have its own consensus mechanism, process its own transactions, and have its own customizable features without worrying about smart contracts.
Scale your dApp without competition for storage and computation resources.
Choose your own programming languages, consensus mechanisms, and development frameworks.
Fine tune your security without relying on complex smart contracts and asset bridges.
