Venom Cutting-Edge Blockchain Launches Testnet and Promises Rewards
Venom, a Layer-1 blockchain based in Abu Dhabi, has recently launched its highly anticipated testnet.
According to Venom Foundation, "the testnet is designed to suit both ecosystem users and developers and allows developers to test and debug dApps and blockchain protocols".
The Venom blockchain sets itself apart as a Turing-complete proof-of-stake blockchain that utilizes the Byzantium Fault Tolerance consensus algorithm for block validation and creation, ensuring a secure and efficient network, according to project’s whitepaper.
The Venom Foundation is the company behind the Venom blockchain, which is claimed to be the the first company authorized to run a blockchain and issue utility tokens within the Abu Dhabi Global Market (ADGM).
Being Turing-complete grants Venom the ability to support self-executing programming scripts, known as smart contracts, similar to Ethereum (ETH). This feature allows Venom to host and execute Web3 applications across various sectors, including decentralized finance (DeFi), decentralized autonomous organizations (DAOs), and Game Finance (GameFi), among others.
The Venom Foundation has adopted a heterogeneous multi-blockchain architectural approach. The Venom blockchain is structured into three layers: the Masterchain, Workchains, and Shardchains. This layered framework enables parallel transaction processing, empowering Venom to handle an impressive throughput of 100,000 to 1 million transactions per second (TPS).
