The culmination of over 8 years of research by the Radix team, Cerberus is a unique consensus algorithm designed to underpin the only public decentralized network capable of supporting billions of users conducting millions of transactions through many thousands of dApps that together can provide a better form of global finance.
DeFi should be accessible to everyone. Paying $200+ to do a simple token swap practically excludes all but the wealthiest from DeFi. For DeFi to thrive, transaction fees must always be low enough to never stand in the way of growth. As Cerberus is designed to scale to millions of transactions per second, there will never be situations where gas fees skyrocket due to congestion on the network.
2256 shards provide practically unlimited capacity for simultaneous dApps and users. When every atom on earth can have its own shard, there is no limit on how much parallelisation can be achieved. This level of sharding and parallelism will mean that as more dApps and users come to the network, more nodes are incentivized to join the network and more nodes = more TPS, without limit.
Compose any number of dApps across shards in a single transaction. One of DeFi’s superpowers is the ability for dApps to interact with each other in a single transaction, which is called atomic composability. Without atomic composability, many core benefits and functions of DeFi break. Cerberus, unlike any other sharded decentralized public network, will maintain atomic composability across shards by making every transaction an efficient cross-shard transaction.
DeFi sucks for developers today. They waste up to 90% of their time battling code. Imagine how much better DeFi would be if we took the brakes off innovation.
That’s why Radix built Scrypto, a purpose-built, asset-oriented programming language for DeFi based on Rust. Scrypto allows developers to quickly and intuitively build secure DeFi dApps.
DeFi sucks for entrepreneurs. Taking a project from concept to success can cost millions of dollars and years of work.
That’s why Radix provides the catalysts for exponentional ecosystem growth into the network itself. Blueprints and developer royalties mean entrepenurial developers can get rewarded automatically by building things that make the ecosystem better.
DeFi sucks for users. Paying hundreds of dollars in gas fees and/or waiting hours for transactions to confirm is infuriating and a major barrier to mass adoption and DeFi.
Cerberus is our unique consenus algorithm that will power the only public decentralized network where scale will never be a bottleneck. With unlimited throughput for DeFi transactions, while maintaining atomic cross-shard composability, Radix is the only network where DeFi can thrive.
