Æternity is a blockchain 3.0

Æternity Blockchain is a new blockchain technology platform for scalable smart contracts founded by Yanislav Malahov also known as the “Godfather of Ethereum”. They are offering very tempting and long way needed new features in the blockchain for security and scalability of the decentralized applications, such as built-in decentralized oracles allowing world data to flow into the blockchain, state channels and turing-complete smart contracts.

Also it is worth to mention the Æternity blockchain is incorporating the Bitcoin NG protocol — a next generation blockchain protocol designed to scale, and the Cuckoo Cycle Proof-of-Work (POW) algorithm which is a memory-intensive mining algorithm that improves mining decentralization.

They are launching their Mainnet soon, so stay tuned for their great project.
