DeStation is a next-generation blockchain protocol that enables blockchains in the NFT ecosystem to integrate and communicate with each other
The Internet of NFTs
By allowing NFT data to be communicated across blockchains, DeStation will create a connected network we are calling the Internet of NFTs, or IONFT.
This connected network will make all NFTs interoperable across blockchains enabling ownership, control, and rights management of NFT metadata and linked resources, regardless of where the NFTs are located. Users will be able to connect and interact with any NFT from any blockchain, including (but not limited to) popular networks such as Ethereum, BSC, Flow, WAX, Kusama, Solana, Tezos, and Polygon.
As creators and developers embrace the immense potential of NFTs, it is foreseeable that many more specialized blockchains will be created; enabling new use cases in areas such as gaming, finance, media ownership, and idenity. All of these blockchains will be connected through the DeStation relay chain, ensuring that fragmentation will not cap growth in the NFT ecosystem.
NFT is not just
It is an access token that enables a unique integration to infinite applications and services. If we think of NFTs as IP addresses, then DeStation is positioned to become the TCP for the NFT space
DeStation’s central blockchain, the IONFT, serves as the foundation of the network, connecting all other blockchains and enabling the integration and verification of NFT data and metadata. Connected to this are many NFT Sharded Blockchains that create bridges between the IONFT and external blockchains.
Each NFT Sharded Blockchain is responsible for the specific work associated with a single external blockchain (including governance, implementation, and NFT features), enabling that blockchain’s NFTs to be accessed through the DeStation IONFT.
DeStation poses no restrictions on the capabilities of NFT Sharded Blockchains other than the requirement that they produce verifiable proofs that can be checked by the Validators assigned to them.
Forkless & Future-Proof
DeStation will utilize key design and architectural features that enable forkless upgrades, ensuring the user base and community remain intact while also enabling key mechanisms for upgrading the blockchain when needed.
Built for Speed
DeStation has been built from the ground up to deliver exceptional performance, using a modified Proof of Stake (POS) consensus that enables the network to generate blocks quickly without compromising security.
Collaboration by Design
DeStation has been built with open governance and transparency in mind. We welcome contributions from the community and other interested parties who are passionate about building the infrastructure for the Internet of NFTs.
