Celer joins forces with Nervos to accelerate layered blockchain technology

Celer joins forces with Nervos to accelerate layered blockchain technology
The project teams have been in constant discussion for the last few months about technology collaboration and integration.

Celer, an off-chain protocol for scaling blockchains today announced it has joined forces with Nervos, a blockchain network and DApp platform built with a layered architecture to collectively refine the layered blockchain architecture and accelerate the mass adoption of blockchain technologies.

Nervos Network’s  base layer, Nervos CKB (Common Knowledge Base) is a Layer 1 public blockchain that is optimized for Layer 2 solutions, with three primary goals: (1) to serve as a store of assets; (2) to serve as a Crypto Court; and (3) to be Layer-2 friendly. Nervos CKB uses a RISC-V based virtual machine, a simple state model called the Cell Model. The whole architecture is a generalization of Bitcoin, which enables Nervos CKB to provide powerful data abstraction, broad consensus, and strong security — all without sacrificing decentralization.

Celer Network is a leading layer-2 scaling platform that enables fast, easy and secure off-chain transactions for not only payment transactions, but also generalized off-chain smart contract. Celer aims to be a coherent architecture to consolidate multiple off-chain scaling techniques including state channel, side-chain, and interactive computing and also encompasses the first-ever off-chain crypto economics suite to incentivize security, data connectivity and liquidity in the off-chain ecosystem.

  • Integration – The teams will work closely to realize the initial integration of Celer Network’s generalized state channel functionality with Nervos CKB.
  • Research – Will conduct research and examine possible new primitives to add in layer-1 blockchain to support layer-2’s continuous evolution in terms of cost, efficiency, privacy, and user experiences.
  • Education – The projects will continue to raise awareness of the global blockchain community about the need for a layered blockchain and the technology, design pattern, and usage pattern around this thesis.

“Nervo’s vision of building “layer-1 for layer-2” resonates with us deeply. We have a long wishlist for layer-1 to enable a more efficient and better-UX layer-2. With this opportunity, we hope to leverage great technology innovation provided by Nervos like RISC-V virtual machine, and also hopefully provide some feedback to Nervos’s design during our integration to enable entirely new possibilities in layer-2 together.”

Dr. Mo Dong, Co-founder of Celer Network

“We are impressed by Celer Network’s coherent design of off-chain scaling technology and crypto economics architecture, fast production delivery speed and all-star technology team. We are excited to have Celer Network as our first layer-2 partner and look forward to continuously working together to bring another layer of scalability on top of Nervos CKB.”
