TrueChain (TRUE) Blockchain Platform - ICO Review, Rating and Details of TrueChain ICO (Token Sale) - Rating: Not Rated

TrueChain is the world’s first public chain that implemented fPoW+ PBFT hybrid consensus and has a strong global open source developer community supporting it.

TrueChain provides the underlying public blockchain infrastructure with high performance and security for decentralized applications and financial transactions.

Problems & Solutions

Over the past two years, there have been a number of public blockchains. Each of these blockchains adopts a certain kind of consensus. All wanted to solve the impossible triangle problem and achieve efficiency, decentralization, security in the same time. Many public chains based on single consensus mechanism such as PoW or PoS, are having a bottleneck in efficiency. One the other hand, those based on dPoS or dBFT have been improved in efficiency, but are having problems in decentralization.

TrueChain uses hybrid consensus called Minerva combining PBFT and fPoW to solve the biggest problem confronting permissionless blockchain: the contradiction between decentralization and efficiency. It uses PBFT as fast-chain to process transactions, and leave the oversight and election of PBFT to the hands of PoW nodes. Besides, TrueChain integrates fruitchain technology into the traditional PoW protocol i.e. fPoW, as the snailchain, to make the chain even more decentralized and fair. TrueChain also added sharding on top of PBFT to lift the limit of scalability.

With solid and leading technology, TrueChain aims to provide a workable and well-governed blockchain platform for decentralized economy. It comes up with the first hybrid consensus incentive model to use economic awareness as a drive to uphold and improve the chain. Meanwhile, it also creates a stable gas fee mechanism to lower the cost for the developers and operators of DApps, and to make the blockchain more public.

Features & Highlights

  • A Streamlined Blockchain: With its permissionless PBFT-fPoW hybrid consensus with secure sharding, the conflict between efficiency and decentralization for permissionless blockchains is solved by TrueChain.

  • A Hybrid Consensus Incentive Model: TrueChain is the first in the world to design an incentive model for the governance of the hybrid consensus which will increase economic awareness in relation to blockchain technology and compensation.

  • Strong Global Developer Community: Among the new generation of permissionless blockchains, TrueChain has a developer community that is the largest in China and the fastest growing in the world.

  • Solved Impossible Triangle: TrueChain is the first working third generation public chain to solve the most important problem in the public chain space, the "Impossible Triangle".
