BLOCKTV sat down with Nervos Foundation Head of Operations, Ben Waters to discuss the Lina mainnet launch, the new grants program for development & how the Coronavirus affects a decentralized organization.
The Nervos Network is a collection of protocols and public blockchain ecosystem aiming to solve the biggest challenges facing blockchains like Bitcoin and Ethereum today.
The Nervos Common Knowledge Base (CKB) is the layer 1, proof of work public permissionless blockchain protocol of the Nervos Network. It allows any crypto-asset to be stored with the security, immutability and permissionless nature of Bitcoin while enabling smart contracts and layer 2 scaling. Its unique crypto-economic model is designed to better align the interests of users, developers, and miners as compared to first-generation blockchains.
As an open-source public blockchain, Nervos is striving for a completely decentralized ecosystem. The new grants fund will allow Nervos to promote blockchain innovation and facilitate collaboration across the wider developer community. Through the grants program, blockchain teams and projects will be able to make significant contributions toward building out the infrastructure of Nervos Network and help further expand the ecosystem.
