Nebulas is a self-evolving blockchain platform which provides a search framework for all blockchains. As opposed to Google, which is used for everyday internet searches, Nebulas focuses on decentralized application (DApps), smart contracts and user’s blockchain assets. An incentive protocol will also be integrated to the platform to reward developers who create good content.
Features of Nebulas
- Nebulas Rank (NR): Value ranking system for DApps and smart contracts. This feature will allow the user to search for the highest rated blockchains. This will further incentivize developers to create high quality content.
- Nebulas Force (NF): Allows the upgrading of core protocols and smart contracts on the chains. It provides self-evolving capabilities to the system and it’s DApps, which allows the the applications to adapt to market or community changes.
- Developers Incentive Protocol (DIP): System which awards developers Nebulas tokens for their work. Helps promote the use of the platform for developers who are hesitant on which platform to build their applications.
- Proof of Devotion (PoD): This consensus algorithm has three key components: Speed, Irreversability and Fairness.
- Nebulas Search Engine: Search engine for decentralized applications and smart contracts based on Nebulas Rank ranking. Allows to organize and classify all the DApps on blockchain platform.
- Lightning Network Wallet: Allows for extremely fast transactions between users as well as atomic swaps, which allows you to exchange your Nebulas token for any lightning network enabled coin.
