What is Massa
Massa is a high-performance blockchain designed to be truly decentralized from the start. The Massa testnet was released in July 2021, providing an easy way for anyone to test our protocol, and has been constantly improving since then. The Massa testnet has now more than 6,500 nodes running.
One innovation brought by Massa is the ability to register “.massa” domains and store websites’ logic directly on the Massa blockchain. Those websites will be accessible directly from a browser through the Massa extension or any compatible extension, without any intermediaries. We believe that innovation will increase the security of critical applications such as DeFi platforms.
Another innovation of Massa is the asynchronicity and self-wakeup capabilities of smart contracts, allowing them to function on the blockchain without being explicitly called by off-chain humans or bots. Massa smart contracts can register actions to be executed later and emit signal events, which other contracts can listen to. Once an event is triggered the corresponding handler functions will be automatically executed. Autonomous smart contracts reduce the need for bots and human interaction and push the limits of decentralization. We believe that autonomous smart contracts have a wide range of applications from autonomous trading bots in DeFi to autonomous agents in decentralized games.
