Coin Spotlight: Ardor (ARDR)

What is Ardor (ADRD)?

Ardor is multi blockchain platform built with NXT technology. It is a blockchain as services (BaaS) meaning, it allows companies to create their own blockchains on the Ardor platform. This allows companies to create blockchains without having to invest in infrastructure or developers.

Their vision

Ardor aims to be one of the top choices for companies and organizations to address their blockchain needs.

What does Ardor (ARDR) do?

Ardor uses NXT technology to allow them to separate the network and security chain (Ardor Parent Chain) from the transactional chains (Child Chains.) Since it uses NXT technology it provides all child chains the ability to issue assets, trade on exchanges, ability to hold public and private polls, set conditional transactions, set up multisig security, and send encrypted messages.

Ardor still processes and secures all transactions using the altcoin ARDR, by using what’s called the bundling system. This allows companies to process their child chain transactions in their own coin while paying transaction fees to the parent chain in ARDR coin. Because of this unique feature, it allows all child chains to interact with one another, creating interoperability between the different child chains.

Notable features:

  • Unlimited Scalability
  • Safe Smart contracts using NXT technology
  • Child Chains: a light blockchain that can be customized
  • Interoperability: All child chains can interact with each other
