Abstract

InfiniteChain proposes an all-new type of distributed auditing as well as a method for multi-chain operation that overcomes bottlenecks encountered thus far by state-of-the-art blockchain technologies and their implementation in commercial applications. Transactions are first processed outside of the main chain and index Merkle trees and distributed auditing are then employed to perform fraud proofs for these transactions in the sidechain. Its advantages include high bandwidth of transactions, protection of transaction privacy, and fusion with existing centralized commercial scenarios. The implementation and experimental results demonstrate the feasibility of the proposed system.
