TON Blockchain

The heart of the platform is the unique blockchain with a scalable and flexible architecture consisting of a master chain and up to 292 accompanying blockchains. Top-notch approaches and methods implemented in TON make sure it will live up to its bold promise of processing millions of transactions per second.

Infinite Sharding Paradigm

Scalability was the Holy Grail previous blockchains failed to find. TON achieves it through sharding as blockchains in it can automatically split and merge to accommodate load changes. Thus block generation speed remains unaffected by the transaction volume, no queues build up and costs remain low regardless of the demand.

Instant Hypercube Routing

Smart routing mechanisms ensure swift exchange between any two blockchains regardless of the network size. Given the logarithmic relation between data transfer time and number of blockchains in TON, scaling to even millions of chains is possible without impairing the processing speed.

Proof-of-Stake Consensus

TON relies on the advanced Proof-of-Stake consensus where validator nodes use deposit stakes to guarantee their dependability and reach consensus through a variant of the Byzantine Fault Tolerant protocol. This resource saving mechanism enables TON to focus nodes computing power on handling transactions and smart contracts further increasing speed and efficiency.

2D Distributed Ledgers

To avoid unnecessary forks, TON can grow new valid blocks on top of any invalidated blocks. This self-healing mechanism saves resources and guarantees that valid transactions are not discarded due to unrelated errors.
