Aeternity is a cryptocurrency focused on real-world data. The protocol’s Oracle system integrates real-world and real-time information with the blockchain. Aeternity also runs some calculations off chain in order to improve performance.

What Is Aeternity (AE)?

Aeternity is a blockchain made for decentralized applications (Dapps). According to its website, Aeternity blockchain is a scalable smart contract platform built to answer some fundamental challenges suffered in previously built blockchains. The Aeternity blockchain is redesigned as a protocol. Thus, the team has successfully integrated a set of functionalities into it.

According to its whitepaper, the three core issues from which a blockchain is suffering are:

  • the stateful design that makes the written smart contracts hard to analyze, complicating the scalability.

  • the high cost of bringing world data into a decentralized and trustless system.

  • limited in getting updated with newer technology and improvement. Thus, the Aeternity blockchain came into the picture. After correcting fundamental scalabilities and flaws in earlier blockchains, the Aeternity protocol is made to accommodate large-scale enterprise usage. The features of the Aeternity blockchain allow connecting the real-world data from the internet with the blockchain in real-time. According to the website, the protocol seeks to be used in developing documents, contracts, receipts, invoices, decentralized finance (DeFi), and for loans payments, shares, decentralized autonomous organization (DAO), governance, and voting.

The Aeternity protocol seeks to deliver the power to tokenize both real-world and virtual assets, including non-fungible tokens (NFTs) such as real estate, certifications, collectibles, and fungible tokens such as cryptocurrencies loyalty points in-game points. Further, the protocol has named its smart contract language ‘Sophia’.

To access the features of blockchain, the protocol requires a fee that the users and developers provide through AEon, which is the native cryptocurrency of Aeternity protocol. AE denotes the ticker of the Aeon. AEon is used as a payment mechanism for any resource when a user consumes on the protocol. The genesis block, which is said to be the first block of the blockchain, is determined via smart contract on Ethereum. Future aeon coins intend to be created via mining. Moreover, the protocol uses a hybrid proof of work and proof of stake consensus mechanism.

History of Aeternity (AE):

The idea of the Aeternity protocol was initiated in 2016. The blockchain was launched in 2018. The first AE token was minted in 2019. The protocol’s whitepaper was released on January 23, 2017. The team behind the protocol includes Owen O’Driscoll as lead ambassador, Tsvetan Kolev as a senior designer, Michal Zajda, Artur Kratt, Dimitar Ivanov as core developers, and Ingmar Zechlin as COO.

We discuss how Ethereum developers are addressing the issue with the EIP-7514 proposal.
