Aelf project speculation lasted more than six months. Aelf understand technical costs and scenario values. "God's return to God, Caesar's return to Caesar", from the blockchain Utopia built by the early technology Geek, through the medium-term consulting circle to consider the compatibility of commercial operation mode, to the later academic experts on the project feasibility and implementation of the expected The analysis makes Aelf a bottom-level public chain that focuses on cross-chain interaction, performance enhancement, and resource isolation for business scenarios.
In Aelf technical architecture, parallelization of cloud services and distributed microservices is a compromise to Internet commercial products and a prescription to face the pain points of existing blockchain commercialization. The Internet has brought a "unbreakable" crit to the traditional business model, and the blockchain called "Internet 2.0" or "Value Internet" focuses on the smooth transition to the existing Internet business scenario business system. In recent years, the reconstruction of legacy systems has become prevalent, and the industry and the technology have generally faced an endless stream of new technologies and new concepts. For business applications, a blockchain solution that is easy to dock and blend is more suitable for blockchain transformation needs. Cloud services integrate advantages of computing and storage resources. Micro services standardize the deployment of business units in the form of containers. Aelf integrates the two at the user interface and implements the coordination of cloud service resource scheduling and micro service containers based on the Aelf kernel. . For business scenarios, this approach can greatly reduce the cost of business upgrades, and even achieve grayscale changes in product versions.
Customizable block headers, customizable smart contract sets, and customizable consensus mechanisms are another compromise for Aelf expansion of business scenarios. Most infrastructure public chains tend to agree on an optimal application model or interface, which forms a full-chain traffic jam between Bitcoin TPS optimization and Ethereum Crypto-Kitties. Many so-called third-generation public chains are also In the architecture design, it is unintentionally deprived of the “blueprint right” of the technical personnel in the business field. The backbone of Aelf technology built the BaaS (Blockchain as a Service) technology framework as early as two years ago. As an infrastructure, the blockchain platform should leave a more open and more expensive access strategy for the upper-layer business system. Although this will bring more trouble to the development of the Aelf project, I believe that such a compromise can have a positive impact on the entire blockchain technology industry, allowing the framework to return to the source and enhance Aelf construction expectations.
Multi-level side-chain and cross-chain collaboration are the most important compromises that Aelf extends to the trust-based business applications of the blockchain system itself. Aelf was originally named Grid internally, visually describing this tree-side indexing mechanism. Aelf uses "chain-one-contract" to describe resource isolation, and also uses "dynamic index" to describe the extension process of business application based on trust transfer. Aelf implements a closed-loop economic system under the interaction of built-in sidechains such as registration authentication, digital assets, and distributed transactions. Whether the client side has built-in sidechains or custom sidechains, it can expand the commercial application under Aelf governance structure. At the same time, the incentives for commercial application requirements can also be fed back to the Aelf system's protocol upgrades, and ultimately the technical benign iterations and commercial extensions complement each other and complement each other.
These three compromises are Aelf in-depth thinking and positive actions on the technical cost and the value of the scene. History has told us and will tell us again that emerging industries will eventually be born out of compromise between technology and market.
