Hathor technology

Technology overview

Hathor is a scalable and easy-to-use blockchain for digital assets. It is a transactional consensus platform comprised of an entirely novel architecture, based on concepts from both directed acyclic graph (DAG) and blockchain technologies combined. Hathor addresses the problem of scalability and decentralization maintenance among distributed ledger networks by including a chain of mined blocks inside a DAG of transactions. The blockchain ensures security when the number of transactions per second is small, whereas the DAG prevails when the number increases significantly.
