WHAT IS MATRIX?

The invention of Bitcoin in 2008 symbolized the advent of cryptocurrency. The succeeding years witnessed a dramatic growth of the blockchain technology. The introduction of Ethereum opened the path for supporting complex business behaviors with cryptocurrencies. The overall momentum of development, however, is now facing a series of key challenges. These include: (1) slow transaction speed; (2) Smart contracts programming barriers; (3) lack of security in smart contracts; and (4) inflexibilities in managing and updating blockchains.
Designed to be the new generation blockchain, MATRIX leverages the latest artificial intelligence technology to resolve the abovementioned challenges. The fusion of blockchain and AI technologies enables MATRIX to build a revolutionary cryptocurrency, which supports significantly boosted transaction speed, superior accessibility to general users, enhanced security under malicious attacks, and highly flexible operations.

FAQ

FAQ

WHAT IS MATRIX?

MATRIX is an open-source blockchain platform that supports smart contracts and machine learning services. With its infrastructure re-built with artificial intelligence (AI) techniques, MATRIX revolutionizes the user experience of executing smart contracts by making the whole process faster, easier, and safer. MATRIX offers breakthrough technologies in building highly flexible blockchain networks, which support adaptive self-optimization and multi-chain collaboration. In addition to refactoring the blockchain with AI, MATRIX also allows its mining power to serve its AI based big data applications.

WHAT ARE MAIN FEATURES OF MATRIX?

Thanks to the fast-growing AI technologies, MATRIX offers unique features as follows.
1. EASIER: Allowing everybody to design smart contracts without explicit programming skills.
2. SAFER: Making blockchains more robust under malicious attacks.
3. FASTER: Enabling faster transactions and higher processing throughput.
4. MORE FLEXIBLE: Seamless integration of public and private chains with the capability of adaptive optimization.

WHAT IS MATRIX's CONSENSUS MECHANISM?

MATRIX adopts a unique hybrid PoS + PoW consensus mechanism. The PoW is performed in a significantly smaller network of delegates, which are selected with a randomly distributed voting algorithm. The probability of a node to be selected is proportional to its PoS. The “winner” delegate shares the PoW reward with other nodes in its cluster.

DOES MATRIX HAVE A MINING MACHINE?

Due to the random nature of MCMC computations, the mining computing of MATRIX is better supported by dedicated stochastic hardware. The first generation of mining machine, a Bayesian reasoning machine, was already designed and prototyped. The prototyping design will be integrated as a single IC chip in the timeframe of two years.
