Ardor | Blockchain-as-a-Service Built with Nxt Technology 2017-09-28T08:41:23+00:00

Advanced Blockchain Technology at Your Fingertips

Ardor is a blockchain-as-a-service platform created by Jelurida that will allow people to utilize the blockchain technology of Nxt through the use of child chains. Since all processing will be done on the Ardor main chain, child chain creators won’t need to worry about common issues when creating a blockchain as well as securing it with enough nodes. Child chains will be able to utilize features currently seen in Nxt such as decentralized phasing, voting, and trading, as well as be able to interact with other child chains on the platform, including Ignis, the first child chain to be launched. The Ignis ICO is currently ongoing and Ardor will launch shortly after the ICO is completed.

The Ardor Main Chain

Ardor Main Chain

The Ardor Main Chain will be where all Ardor tokens (ARDR) will reside. It will serve as the system that secures all child chains and processes their transactions. While some transactions will be possible on the Main Chain, such as exchanging ARDR from one account to the other, most features will be unavailable on the chain itself in order to improve its performance and reduce blockchain bloat. Because it is 100% Proof-of-Stake, no additional processing will be needed for mining as no new tokens will be created.

Creating an Ardor Child Chain

Creating an Ardor child chain allows you to utilize the advanced blockchain technology of Nxt for your business, organization, group, or independent project

Child Chain Features

Each child chain will be able to utilize the following decentralized features found in Nxt

Join Testnet

The Ardor testnet is open to everyone. The main purpose of this is to allow users to test the various features of Ardor so that the developers can fine-tune the blockchain platform for the mainnet launch in the third quarter of this year. When using the Ardor testnet, please remember not to use your Nxt passphrase for security reasons. Note: If you have ARDR tokens, do NOT send them to the address you create on the Ardor Testnet. Please send them to a Nxt Wallet from Nxt.org as ARDR is currently an asset on the Nxt blockchain until its launch in Q3.
