Syscoin is a smart contract platform that supports a state-of-the-art Web 3.0 ecosystem with extremely low fees, decentralized Layer 1 security, and Layer 2 scalability providing economies of scale through Rollup. Syscoin is designed to support the future of smart contracts within the Metaverse, IoT, Smart Cities, and future interplanetary economies. Syscoin's roadmap includes the implementation of ZK-Rollup, Optimistic Rollups, Validium and DAOSYS, a new type of DAO that aims to provide governance-free treasury management and self-sovereignty for all participants. Syscoin benefits from smart contracts and stacks by securing transactions with Bitcoin's own proof-of-work and Bitcoin mining network through co-mining. Syscoin also provides Finality in the form of chainlocks served by quorums of incentivized full nodes (masternodes). This purpose provides a more secure Defi, effectively eliminating 51% of the risks of attacks and long-range miner extractable value (MEV attacks) to which Ethereum remains susceptible, maintaining the proven Nakamoto and Proof-of-Work consensus. Syscoin is a dual-chain architecture with a stack-centric design. It consists of an Ethereum-based blockchain called the Network Enhanced Virtual Machine (NEVM), launched on December 6, 2021, which is 100% compatible with any smart contract or digest built for Ethereum. The other blockchain is called Syscoin Core or Syscoin Main. It is a Bitcoin-based blockchain with an asset tier that supports fungible and non-fungible tokens, taproot, a proprietary DAG protocol called Z-DAG, and more. The overall design allows users and developers to build on the strengths of each "gold standard" model, with Syscoin creating new synergies between them where appropriate. Both blockchains use the same native SYS coin provision which is based on EIP-1559. SYS owners can transfer SYS between both chains through the trustless and unauthorized Syscoin Bridge, which uses a two-way binding mechanism. The project is broad in scope, offering new solutions to many industry-wide challenges, including regulatory compliance. For compliance, Syscoin provides Notary, an optional solution that allows companies to use the public Syscoin blockchain for their tokens, while ensuring pre-compliance with regulations for individual transactions while asset owners maintain self-custody. This provides the necessary technical foundation for a future where stocks and shares can participate in Defi on a public blockchain alongside other tokens.
