The Radix protocol develops a high-performance protocol for creating decentralized applications (dApps), tokens, and currencies based on cryptocurrency blockchain. This shows that four new technological solutions have been implemented that can contribute to decentralized financing (DeFi). Provide wide acceptance.

Traditional financial systems require many intermediations and manual processes that cost about 0.05% of global GDP or $ 71 billion a year. While decentralized financing can remove much of that friction and expense, today’s DeFi applications are built on blockchain protocols that don’t meet mainstream adoption needs.

As the number of DeFi hacks grows and transaction fees on Ethereum become very high, Radix introduces a platform with fast, secure, and low-cost transactions. A development environment designed to allow safe and flexible user resources; and a smart contract marketplace designed to create a vibrant developer ecosystem.

Radix notes that it has developed Cerberus, a high-speed blockchain network consensus algorithm. Radix Engine can implement various DeFi applications, Component Catalog, a library for developing DeFi platforms, and Developer Royalties, a “decentralized” incentive or reward program.

Radix Engine makes it possible to create DeFi application logic in the ledger designed secure and reduces exploits, hacks, and errors. This is due to the Radix Enginebeings, a programmable finite state machine, a class of execution environments familiar in mission-critical embedded systems where predictable fixes are the highest priority. To clarify the distinction between typical Ethereum-style smart contracts, Radix Engine smart contracts are referred to as components.

Based on the Radix Engine, the Component Catalog provides a decentralized ledger hub that allows developers to create, share, extend, and join modular components to accelerate dApp builds. Developers can charge a license fee to use their ledger components or use them for free. One developer’s features can be securely integrated into a more extensive set of features from another developer. This allows for a quick and safe process that leverages the work of the community.

This unique incentive program is called the Developer Royalty System and is specifically designed to facilitate and accelerate DeFi innovation. This system provides protocol-level incentives, similar to the secure network operator incentives created by crypto mining, for any developer to contribute large or small components that can become standards on the platform.

The basis of the full Radix solution is Cerberus’ unique consensus algorithm. Cerberus uses a new consensus process called “braiding” that enables synchronous and asynchronous communication between shards. This avoids the current DeFi interoperability limitations resulting from other scalable consensus designs such as Ethereum 2.0, Algorand, Polkadot, or Cosmos.

Cerberus enables a flexible protocol that can parallelize an unlimited number of transactions for linear scalability while retaining DeFi compositing capabilities. Greater network demand can be met by increasing the number of incentive node corridors, just like adding exit lanes at a busy supermarket. Cerberus ensures that network resources are used as efficiently as possible for maximum performance and composition capacity. This makes it ideal for the in-demand interconnected DeFi ecosystem.

These tools are built together to create a decentralized, empowering, and self-sustaining DeFi ecosystem on Radix and make it the most powerful, easy-to-use, and interoperable DeFi platform in the world.

According to Radix, DeFi could go mainstream if trades can be completed at low or competitive prices. It is also essential that DeFi networks are secure, scalable, and ready to develop composable applications. There must also be incentives that motivate software developers to create DeFi solutions.

The Radix protocol tends to generalized DeFi once all obstacles have been removed without “affecting decentralization.”

The Radix engine was specifically designed to “create logic that defines predictable and correct results in the ledger in response to requirements.” The engine is based on state machines. In the meantime, the component catalog is based on Radix Engine and offers software developers a ledger (or blockchain-based) hub for building dApps.

Cerberus is Radix’s consensus mechanism developed from “a unique, pre-fragmented ledger and a new consensus process called lichen.” The incentive program called Developer Royalties offers special rewards at the protocol level.

On Radix protocol, developing a consistent ideal platform for traditional DeFi is not about “solving one problem, but rather about solving various problems that exist at every layer of today’s DLT platforms.”

Radix recommends that DeFi platforms support interoperability, have well-balanced incentives, be scalable, and avoid hacks, exploits, or other disruption types.

DeFi has seen explosive growth. A value of more than 6.7 billion US dollars is tied up in various DeFi protocols
