The PLUG framework allows for the creation of production-ready blockchain systems that utilise blockchain as a layer in the tech stack, rather than requiring existing businesses to rewrite their systems to work in a blockchain paradigm.
PLUG aims to fix many of the security and scaling issues that have plagued cryptocurrency-based blockchain technologies, such as insecure language design, reliance on a globally-shared blockchain, and contentious governance problems.
How will the PLUG token be used?
PLUG is an ERC-20 token that you’ll be able to convert into validation tokens when PLUGnet launches later in the year. Token holders with validation tokens will also be able to participate in the consensus process.
PLUG is written in Python: a common language that most developers can already write in or learn, without having to learn a new, unwieldy, or obscure language.
Easy to understand
The PLUG framework can be used and implemented much like any other traditional software library, removing the usual execution and maintenance risks.
PLUG is designed to allow different applications (or groups of users) to create trustless interactions between different PLUG networks and between PLUG and other blockchains. PLUG allows each use case to evolve in its own right, while still maintaining fidelity in transactions between them.
Flexibility, control, and security
PLUG provides flexibility, control, and security when building permissioned blockchains for business-driven services.
When building on the fully decentralised public PLUGnet, the PLUG framework enables easy integration with pre-existing technologies into the blockchain.
By connecting smaller, diverse blockchain networks together we are able to create a truly global, scalable, and evolving blockchain layer of the internet.
