Cartesi creates a bridge between Linux and blockchain. It gives DApps massive processing power and industrial-grade programmability.
Cartesi provides a Linux runtime environment for scalable blockchain Dapps. Complex and intensive computations run off-chain, while retaining the security guarantees of the blockchain.
With Cartesi, developers can continue to use the mature software infrastructure they are already proficient with, supported by Linux.They are free from the hassle of limited idiosyncratic blockchain environments. Instead, they can build on decades of software development and combine existing components to build their blockchain applications. Mainstream developers encounter a welcoming, familiar environment on which to express their ideas.
Cartesi will also make DApps portable across the most relevant blockchains, so developers don’t have to worry about the longevity of specific blockchain projects.
Cartesi Core is an infrastructure comprised of on-chain and off-chain components. In a nutshell, each participant that wants to interact with a Cartesi DApp does so through the off-chain component, which is called the Cartesi Node.
By moving computation off-chain, Cartesi Core removes the processing load from the consensus layer while preserving the security guarantees of the underlying blockchain. That’s rendered possible by the combination of three principles.
Cartesi allows the creation of a vast array of decentralized applications. It greatly expands the possibilities of current technology with benefits such as: use of traditional software stacks, easy and resourceful development environment, high TPS, high computational throughput, native financial settlement layer, portability across the most relevant blockchains and usability conveniences for DApp users. Cartesi aims to be accessed, used, developed-on in the most convenient fashion, ultimately, to become the prevailing DApp platform.
