Scalable smart contracts interfacing with real-world data
æternity is a new platform for decentralized apps launched in testnet in 2017. It is a new blockchain technology, designed to deliver unmatched efficiency, transparent governance and global scalability. The project focuses on increasing the scalability of smart contracts and DApps and accomplishes scaling by moving smart contracts off-chain. Instead of running on the blockchain, smart contracts on æternity run in private state channels between the parties involved in the contracts.
