infinite chains number
We aim to dramatically improve the user experience and flow in the token economy. The goal of Herdius' Distributed Virtual Wallet Network is to create a transaction and identity layer on top of all blockchains. Through this layer Herdius network participants can seamlessly transact and trade with the advantage of only going back to the root chains when transacting with a non-Herdius user. Our mission is to build a highly performant architecture that can significantly improve on current user experience and confirmation times.read more in the whitepaper
Decentralized App and Chain Interoperability
Herdius plans to provide a powerful, efficient and scalable backend for existing and future dApps. Any dApp, on any blockchain, can create a Herdius address which they can link with their smart contract or app directly thereby allowing any Herdius user to utilize the functionalities of that app. The goal is to bridge usersbases across different chains and ecosystems with each other to allow anyone to use any appplication regardless what blockchain they are running on.read more in the whitepaper
