The Velas Ecosystem: A Detailed Review

Over the years, numerous scalability issues afflicting blockchain networks have been noticeable. As the second-biggest crypto project and the most prominent cryptocurrency, Ethereum has demonstrated the possibilities of blockchain technology go well beyond its primary usage as a decentralized ledger for the storage of transactions.

As a result of Ethereum, we learned that blockchains could contain code, which led to the development of smart contracts, which led to dApps and DeFi protocols, non-fungible tokens and stablecoins. Ethereum’s ecosystem grew so large that the Ethereum network couldn’t keep up with it. Nearly every operation in Ethereum’s ecosystem necessitates a transaction or microtransaction and processing them all in real-time is simply not possible with Ethereum.

When the average transaction fee surged because of the high gas fees required to process urgent transactions first, many users abandoned the network in favor of more scalable others. As a result, EVM-oriented blockchains, which are chains that enable Ethereum-based smart contracts and dApps, have become extremely valuable because they are more scalable than other blockchain chains. This is where Velas, one of the best blockchains, comes in handy.

This post goes over the Velas ecosystem in great detail.

The Velas Ecosystem: Background

In 2019, Alex Alexandrov, founder, and CIO of Velas revealed a personal glorious and inspiring vision of a new and expanding blockchain with Farkhad Shagulyamov. The idea was motivated by the values of Web 3.0 and cryptocurrencies. They united their knowledge and abilities to develop a pioneering decentralized ecosystem, Velas.

From the beginning of Velas’ history, the company’s primary purpose was to establish a solid blockchain ideal for everyday use. Velas’ technology innovation strives to address the present blockchain issues, so their solutions are built to focus on scalability, security, and decentralization.

The Velas team is comprised of the most outstanding specialists capable of coping with a wide variety of issues. Velas is a developer-friendly blockchain environment with a wide range of capabilities. It is designed to serve as the platform for a new generation of services, applications, and games.

Technology Behind the Velas Ecosystem

According to Velas blockchain’s developers, the usage parts of the Solana blockchain is an essential set of technology for the platform’s overall design because it allows easy scaling, security, decentralization, and accessibility.

Below are the eight essential technologies to accomplish this goal:

● Proof of History (POH) — a clock before consensus;

● Tower BFT — a PoH-optimized version of PBFT;

● Turbine — a block propagation protocol;

● Gulf Stream — Mempool-less transaction forwarding protocol;

● Sealevel — Parallel smart contracts run-time;

● Pipelining — a transaction processing unit for validation optimization

● Cloudbreak — Horizontally-scaled accounts database

● Archivers — Distributed ledger storage

Velas has always put effectiveness and security at the top of its technological development process. Let’s take a look at some of the Velas use cases on the Velas blockchain to understand the ecosystem better.

1. Token swapping with WagyuSwap

The decentralized exchange, WagyuSwap, is the very first initiative on the Velas blockchain. When using WagyuSwap, customers can benefit from significantly cheaper transaction fees than Ethereum, Bitcoin, and the Binance Smart Chain, thanks to Velas’ cutting-edge technology. WagyuSwap currently has approximately $6 million invested, with more than 1,500 monthly active users.

2. Social media with BitOrbit

Privacy-focused social media networks allow content creators to sell their content without the need for third parties. Content creators can establish their business initiatives and actively engage with users by offering high-quality content and products via micro applications. A built-in cryptocurrency wallet will enable consumers to support influencers directly. Most significantly, Velas protects the privacy of all communication and activity on its platform.

3. Full support for DeFi, NFTs, and more

With the help of Ethereum-based applications like Etherscan, Chainlink, asset bridges, and many others, Velas has entered a phase of rapid ecosystem expansion. Everything built on Ethereum or an EVM blockchain can now function smoothly on Velas, including DeFi services, NFT platforms, DEXs, and games.

What Advantages Does the Velas Ecosystem Bring?

The Velas ecosystem has about four primary advantages currently:

1. Grants Program

This gives developers of decentralized applications (dApps) the chance to get up to $100,000 per project as an investment for making projects that run on the Velas blockchain. Teams and projects that want funding from Velas must present a detailed proposal including a detailed plan, and an explanation of how their project will help the Velas ecosystem. For selected teams, the Velas funding program offers full assistance.

2. EVM-Compatible

Velas ecosystem is EVM compatible, which means it allows EVM interoperability. As a result, users will be able to use some of the most popular and advanced Ethereum-based smart contracts and dApps on the market. This also makes Velas a different kind of EVM-compatible project, not just another cryptocurrency that competes with Ethereum.

3. Affordable Transactions Costs

Due to the high level of scalability of the Velas system, transactions no longer have to wait in line to be completed. This also means that transaction fees don’t have to be so high. Velas transactions can stay as low as they were meant to be from the start.

4. Staking

Long-term investors and people who want to keep their coins in the Velas ecosystem will like this feature because it lets them keep their coins in their wallets and still get the benefits of staking. You can put your money to work for you by allowing VLX to earn interest.
