Duality’s Platform Design


Duality’s Platform Design:

  • Duality is underpinned by the technology of the Dynamic public blockchain. Dynamic functions as an open, highly redundant and available API framework used to audit, verify, and request access to sidechains. Proof-of-work and proof-of-stake consensus algorithms are used to reach agreement on transactions and maintain trust between nodes rather than a central authority driving change and administration. This helps reduce resourcing requirements, directory maintenance costs, and eliminates the need to employ trusted third parties for hosting, administering and managing data.
  • Sidechains allow granular access control, industry best security, high availability, robust accountability with immutable audits, and smart contracts to enforce critical business logic. Sidechains are extensions of the mainchain that increase scalability by offloading tasks. Duality sidechains can be public or private depending on the developers desired application. Sidechains use accounts and/or certificates to authorize who is allowed to access their private blockchain. Sidechains can have different consensus rules and sovereignty to meet the needs required by the hosted application. By offloading (sharding) computation and transactions to sidechains, the Duality platform can achieve higher throughput and indefinite scalability. Sidechains also remove bloat from the mainchain and can make applications that need large scale transactions faster and private. Our sidechains will also have the ability to run distributed SQL and NoSQL databases with account and/or certificate based access control and authentication. Since healthcare data must remain confidential and secure, a trusted permissioned blockchain layer is required.
