Review

AChain has a few things that sets it apart. The first difference is that AChain is that it is not like Bitcoin or Ethereum in that it makes use of modified versions of DPoS – RDPoS (Result delegated Proof of Stake) in order to make a node consensus.

Key Features

  • Special cryptocurrency
  • Website
  • Fast processing
  • Automatic contract testing

Special cryptocurrency

There are several benefits to this including being more energy efficient and in addition, it is also a more democratic algorithm. However, with DPoS you only get a single validator to generate the block. With RDPoS it is possible to have the top ninety-nine validators participating in transaction verifications in a few cases.

Website

Just a small side node, the website is very well made. very eye catching and clean.

Fast processing

According to AChain, it is possible for its blockchain to perform a minimum of one thousand transactions per second and this is made possible because of its unique consensus method. The best thing about AChain is that it is more than one with a great consensus solution because it also offers smart contract possibilities.

It is programmed in Lua which though an obscure language is nevertheless more popular than Solidiity which is used in Ethereum. Even better, it is a language that is easy to learn and in addition, it is also a more versatile language which attracts a good number of app developers. The best part is AChain also offers support for Solidity and Java as well as C#.

Automatic contract testing

Yet another interesting feature of AChain is that it offers smart sandbox which is an environment in which contracts are automatically tested for normal loopholes before being deployed.

This makes the network more secure. Also, AChain devs are also paying attention to the ease with which forking takes place because it believes that this procedure will be a natural way to upgrade as well as evolve blockchain technology. This makes AChain capable of containing protocols to support out-of-chain events as well as inter-chain communications. These features will be completely implemented in AChain throughout this year (2018).

Conclusion

All in all, AChain is just one more cryptocurrency that has a few new ideas.

Pros

  • Result delegated Proof of Stake
  • Smart sandbox
  • Interesting ideas

Cons

  • No backing (asset, profits, commodity)
