What Is NULS?
NULS is a modular blockchain that implements a proof of credit (POC) consensus protocol. The team behind it is on a mission to provide enterprise-level blockchain infrastructure with a focus on pluggability and customization. They plan to do so through customizable modules that include smart contracts, subchains, and cross-chain consensus, among other things. Let’s dig in.
In this guide, we break down:
How Does NULS Work?
The NULS design consists of two functional parts:
- The microkernel is the foundation of the network. It renders the project’s underlying mechanisms.
- The functional modules are the plug-and-play compartments of the blockchain. They have low coupling among each other, so you can swap them in and out as you see fit.
From the microkernel-powered module manager, you can connect different modules to your blockchain. For instance, you have customizable control over smart contracts, storage, consensus, and accounts. Think of the relationship between modules and your blockchain as…
