Interbit’s unique architecture allows you to build applications that consist of many blockchains, providing the benefits of blockchain technology while solving the inherent limitations.
The multi-blockchain architecture is possible via proprietary technology known as chain joining, which enables Interbit blockchains to securely share selected portions of data.
Chain joining is the protocol that allows Interbit blockchains to share information securely. By using cryptographic proofs to validate data and verify block lineage, independent Interbit blockchains can communicate, enabling Interbit’s unique multi-blockchain architecture.
Interbit runs in a virtual environment, known as a host blockchain or hypervisor. This accommodates the multi-chain architecture and makes Interbit applications agnostic to the underlying hardware, providing Interbit with its lightness and flexibility.
The host blockchain has access to system level functions of the underlying hardware. Using chain joining, Interbit applications can exchange instructions with the host, meaning they can instruct the host blockchains to perform system level functions. The hardware resources across the network can therefore be controlled by the application, making them software controlled, giving Interbit its hyperconvergence properties.
Chainception refers to the creation of new Interbit blockchains. It enables resilience by quickly distributing a new blockchain to several nodes and improves overall performance by allowing the new blockchain to access the computational resources of other nodes.
A side effect is an action in which the blockchain interacts with hardware such as input or output devices like keyboards, displays and network devices such as Wi-Fi accessibility.
The payload layer is a separate fabric for sending and storage of files whereby objects are not uploaded to the chain and instead the file path and a hash are stored. This allows users to access large objects without actually storing the objects themselves on chain.
Interbit’s architecture enables you to segregate data between blockchains, giving you absolute control over privacy and data protection.
By dividing the network into many chains, Interbit segregates consensus and ordering operations, maintaining high performance as the network scales.
