🖇️Architecture

Storage Layer

At the heart of the Astatine Network architecture lies the Storage Layer, where data is securely stored and managed. This layer employs advanced distributed ledger technology to ensure data integrity, immutability, and accessibility. All network data, including transactions, smart contracts, and token information, is organized and stored efficiently.

Runtime Layer

The Runtime Layer serves as the execution environment for smart contracts and decentralized applications (DApps). It comprises a robust execution framework that enables developers to deploy, execute, and interact with smart contracts seamlessly. This layer supports various programming languages and ensures optimal performance while maintaining security standards.

Peer-to-Peer Network Layer

The Peer-to-Peer (P2P) Network Layer establishes the decentralized network infrastructure that enables nodes to communicate and collaborate. Nodes within the Astatine Network form a distributed network topology, facilitating the propagation of transactions, blocks, and messages. This layer employs advanced networking protocols to ensure secure and efficient communication.

Consensus Layer

The Consensus Layer is where the Astatine Network's Proof of Value (PoV) consensus mechanism comes to life. PoV revolutionizes validation by validating transactions based on real-world contributions, rather than energy-intensive computations or token ownership. Validators verify the meaningful contributions of participants, ensuring consensus alignment with actual value creation.

RPC (Remote Procedure Call) Layer

The RPC Layer provides an interface for external applications, services, and users to interact with the Astatine Network. Through well-defined APIs, developers can initiate transactions, query blockchain data, and execute smart contract functions remotely. This layer enhances accessibility and integration, enabling a seamless user experience across diverse applications.

Telemetry Layer

The Telemetry Layer monitors and gathers real-time operational data from the Astatine Network's nodes and components. This layer enables network administrators and participants to gain insights into network health, performance, and efficiency. Telemetry data aids in making informed decisions, optimizing network operations, and ensuring a smooth user experience.

Holistic Synergy

The Astatine Network's architecture operates in holistic synergy, combining these essential layers to create a robust, efficient, and user-centric blockchain platform. The integration of advanced technologies, such as the Proof of Value consensus mechanism, empowers users to participate meaningfully and contribute value while ensuring security, scalability, and sustainability.

As Astatine Network continues to evolve, this architecture serves as the foundation upon which innovation, decentralization, and empowerment flourish, bridging the gap between the digital realm and tangible impact.
