Nervos (TBA) Blockchain Platform - ICO Review, Rating and Details of Nervos ICO (Token Sale) - Rating: S/P Round

Nervos is a suite of scalable and interoperable protocols and an open blockchain “Trustware” platform for decentralized applications. Trustware is a new decentralized computing paradigm that goes beyond distributed ledgers and smart contracts, to bring general expression of trust to meet the demand of today’s real world applications.

In contrast to smart contract platforms, Nervos uses the “Common Knowledge Base”, a simpler state machine with uniform state transition semantics for superior scalability, interoperability and better aligned incentives for all participants of the network.
