What is Bismuth (BIS)?

Bismuth is both a blockchainprotocol and a platform at the same time. The platform features a creative approach to database scaling, limits contract execution, and introduces the concept of private contracts to users. This private contract requires users willing to participate on the platform while keeping the contracts publicly verifiable through alternative means. According to its website, in Bismuth, users can choose from many open source projects and use plugins to limitlessly extend scaling capabilities and options through selective node behavior and customized layers.

According to its whitepaper, the Bismuth project aims to make Bismuth's core node well documented, streamlined, and efficient. This framework would encourage future extensions and applications built on Bismuth; to use the plugin system and separate repositories. Besides these supports, the platform also features:

  • Hyperblock technology: Using which transactions can be compressed regularly, reducing the size of the blockchain to just the number of accounts it contains. When configured only for hyperblocks, the platform saves 96 percent of RAM and enables users to conserve as much drive space as possible. 

  • OpenField blockchain: This enables users to save their data, including private and public messages, communication with decentralized application interpreters, document fingerprinting for legal purposes, and complex operations to execute shared-state contracts. 

  • HyperNode: This reflects Bismuth utilizes a secondary proof of stake blockchain to collect metrics independently and without interference so that nodes that provide reliable services can be rewarded. With operations abstracted from normal blocks but stored outside them, it is possible to implement any content, including on-chain forking, without disturbing the underlying system.

  • Tor's onion network: A network integration that fully supports completely concealed transaction routing with this platform. A completely new approach to encryption is planned for future stealth tokens, opening up a world of possibilities. The Tor network and software help to maintain anonymous browsing on the Internet. Typically, Tor users access the service through a web browser.

Further, to support this overall framework, Bismuth introduced its cryptocurrency, the BIS token. BIS is the native tokenof the Bismuth ecosystem. The BIS is a partially ERC-20 compliant token, which supports all operational activity on the platform and is used to reward node operators of the network.
