A critical foundation responsible for maintaining the integrity of the ledger, validating transactions and executing the magic of smart contracts, our Layer 1 blockchain is designed to deliver a seamless user experience for metaverse applications.
Scalable L2 technology futureproofs the network to ensure its continued growth and success. The Root Network employs a ‘network of networks’ architecture that leverages the security of our Layer 1 network.
The result is a significant improvement in the scalability, speed, and functionality of the user experience.
Integrated EVM provides full support for Solidity smart contracts, enabling any code previously written for Ethereum to run natively on The Root Network.
The EVM integration provides the broadest possible support for smart contracts, DApps and existing Ethereum-based asset collections. Interoperable development begins by enabling developers to easily port Ethereum functionality to The Root Network with bi-directional communication.
Integrated EVM allows developers to extend on The Root Network functionality by deploying their own smart contracts. Our EVM implementation allows deep connectivity to the native runtimes on ROOT for enhanced developer and user experience.
Create digital assets and tokens that can be used and exchanged across different applications, experiences and destinations in the open metaverse.
Our on-chain protocols support existing industry standards such as ERC-20 ERC-721 and XLS-20, ensuring that digital assets remain compatible with a diverse range of metaverse applications and experiences. However, we provide additional functionality and enhanced user experience by connecting these to our in-chain runtimes. By leveraging these common standards, we promote seamless interoperability across the entire web3 ecosystem, providing users with a unified and frictionless experience.
Create and trade digital collectables quickly and easily with network-enforced royalties. The Root Network’s built-in digital collectables protocol allows users to create new collectables and collections without having to deploy smart contracts.
The protocol enforces royalties at the transaction layer so creators are properly compensated. Using the in-chain protocol enhances interoperability by having a uniform approach to how tokens are created.
The interoperable open metaverse is fueled by The Root Network community where anyone can run a node or stake ROOT to participate.
The network is powered by industry leading proof-of-stake consensus with validators selected to forge new blocks based on their respective stake in the ecosystem.
This energy efficient form of network security combines high performance with low impact on the planet. The network’s native token, ROOT, serves as collateral for those who want to participate in creating new blocks.
Forms of block rewards
The Root Network has a unique any-token economy designed to simplify user onboarding and optimize the gas fee economy for both users and validators.
The Root Network's any-token economy is a unique and innovative approach to optimizing both gas fees and user onboarding. The system enables users to onboard using the native token of an application or developers to delegate and pay fees on behalf of users. The Root network automatically converts any token configured to the default gas token on the users behalf.
This flexibility enables users to onboard without having to understand the underlying network economy or interact with exchanges.
The Root Network separates the staking token from the gas token. This system solves the challenges posed by high or volatile network fees and the issue of insufficient liquidity to incentivize node operators.
The Root Network natively supports asset bridges to power both the transfer and referencing of fungible assets, non-fungible assets and arbitrary data between blockchains.
Our asset bridging functionality provides increased liquidity, utility and visibility for assets housed on other chains. Assets on XRPL or Ethereum can easily be ported over to interface with applications on The Root Network. Our state bridge allows for developers to take data changes on one chain and trigger events on The Root Network.
The Asset Registry platform and tooling will assist builders in defining digital assets to ensure their compatibility with a wide range of applications in the open metaverse.
Developers use the Schema Registry to define interface layers that express the requirements and relationships of assets within specific experiences such as games, social spaces, commerce and other open metaverse environments. Builders have the freedom to specify the exact constraints and interfaces required to model their experiences and the registry ensures that applications have a uniform way to access that data.
The Root Network is equipped with a native protocol for the ownership of AI powered collectables. The Root Network's Altered State Machine AI protocol allows metaverse builders to create applications and experiences powered by AI agents that are ownable and tradable by their owners.
