A blockchain-agnostic oracle system that supports communication of blockchains with the outside world, cross-chain communication, and sidechains within a single unified structure.
Blockchain-agnosticism is limited if proposing a technological solution involves adding one more architectural layer. By ensuring parity of the respective interconnected blockchains, Gravity circumvents the need for a dedicated blockchain and token, with the intention to achieve increased efficiency, security and inclusivity. As such, Gravity is designed to be a truly blockchain-agnostic protocol. Ultimately, Gravity protocol intends to address scalability challenges by providing a solid infrastructure for the creation of gateways, cross-chain applications, and sidechains.
Gravity is easy to set up: in order to start monetising your infrastructure via the Gravity network, you can simply pay a deposit in any of the supported native tokens and run a Gravity node on your server.
Gravity offers new monetisation models to node maintainers, as a flexible alternative to mining. Providers of Gravity services can monetise their data processing capabilities and get paid in the native tokens of platforms connected by Gravity.
Consumers of data or event triggers from Gravity nodes can pay for services by maintaining a stable balance on the payment accounts of providers.
The core framework of the Gravity protocol is Pulse, a two-step data provision workflow that prescribes how information is fed from external sources to blockchain networks and how oracle consensus about the data is achieved.
Unlike monolithic blockchain nodes, such as those of Ethereum or Waves, Gravity nodes are adjustable and consist of multiple modules, supporting various types of services and data sources.
End-users of Gravity data services can subscribe to a certain type of data to be fed into a chosen blockchain in exchange for a regular fee. The end result is highly configurable: for example, when requesting exchange rates, consumers of data can configure the variability of values required for their use case.
Gravity is an open-source technology with transparent mechanisms for introducing changes and improvements. Join the community of open-source developers and service providers to contribute to the success of web3.0!
