What is Digibyte and How Does It Work

The basic features

  1. Applications or DigiAssets. The developers compare it to an application store. This layer allows to write smart contracts and create digital tokens on the DigiByte blockchain. It’s a very powerful feature because its ancestor Bitcoin still doesn’t have smart contracts. The opportunity to develop decentralized applications usually attracts many developers with new ideas.
  2. Core protocol. This layer is the main one, laying in the foundation of the whole network. It defines how nodes communicate. That’s the software that every DigiByte node runs.
  3. Public ledger. That’s the layer that lies between the previous two. All blockchain data gets stored on the ledger, and gets accessed by the other two layers when necessary.
