Cartesi aims to build a general-purpose operating system for decentralized applications, providing off-chain computing services in the Linux environment without compromising security and decentralization. With this, Cartesi hopes to help build decentralized applications that are more performant, easy to develop, economical and universal, to provide developers with familiar and easy-to-use development tools, and to bring a better user experience to the public.
Cartesi (CTSI) is a layer 2 infrastructure designed to enable complex and intensive computations to run in a Linux environment outside the blockchain without compromising decentralization and security.
Developers can work in a familiar environment with no artificial restrictions and have access to the development tools they are familiar with.
dApps can temporarily store data on the Cartesi sidechain, governed by a Proof-of-Stake (PoS) consensus algorithm, without having to constantly communicate with the underlying blockchain.
