Carbon (SWTH) is the native cryptocurrency and governance token of Carbon, a Tier 2 trading protocol that powers financial markets and cross-chain infrastructures. As a custom sidechain, Carbon adopts the delegated proof-of-stake (dPOS) consensus mechanism built into Tendermint Core and is protected by SWTH staking with a decentralized network of validators. In exchange for their bonus, participants earn network rewards and trading fees. The protocol is highly composable, versatile, and secure, making it easy for developers to deploy and scale any type of decentralized application by breaking down the barriers of the blockchain. Carbon is interconnected with a growing number of Layer 1 chains, including Ethereum, BSC, Neo, and Zilliqa. Carbon serves as the hub of the multi-chain world as it lays the groundwork for the future of decentralized financial economies.
