Chromia

Chromia is an open-source blockchain network that allows people to build dApps with real utility, including blockchain-based games. The unique characteristic of Chromia is that it is also a relational database, so the project’s backends are written in a specialized language that is coherent with the relational model.

What Is Chromia?

Chromia is an open-source blockchain network that allows people to build dApps with real utility, including blockchain-based games. The unique characteristic of Chromia is that it is also a relational database, so the project’s backends are written in a specialized language that is coherent with the relational model. The project was updated from an earlier technology named  “Postchain” and was named Chromapolis at first.

Its goal is to overcome the limitations contemporary blockchains are facing, such as low-level security, high fees, and poor user and developer experience. The crew behind the project believes that when the goal is achieved it will accelerate blockchain projects to the mainstream. 

Chromia was introduced by the Swedish company Chromaway AB. The platform works as a standalone Layer-1 blockchain and also as a Layer-2 enhancement for Binance Smart Chain and Ethereum. Chromia Chains are anchored to the Proof-of-Work blockchain like Bitcoin or Ethereum. 

Chromia can be used for building any types of dApps and especially suitable for the cases involving management of complex data sets, for example massive multiplayer online games. It already hosts projects like Hedget, which allows users to trade crypto options, LAC property Chain, the government land registry enterprise. In 2021 Chromia collaborated with decentralized NFT Gaming platform My Neighbour Alice and provided a dedicated node to complete relational blockchain validation within the game.

The platform is powered by CHR — native token that was created in May 2019 to strengthen the relationships between all the network participants: users, developers and investors. It has a total supply of 978 million tokens with 567 million of them currently being in circulation.
