How Does it Work

The Internet Computer is a blockchain network. They hope to increase the functionality of the internet in a safe, decentralized, and economical manner. Furthermore, they want to address Ethereum’s scalability issues without sacrificing security or decentralization. ICP believes that they can complete transactions in one to two seconds. In comparison, Ethereum takes about 15 seconds, and Bitcoin around 10 minutes.

Furthermore, ICP goes beyond normal blockchain development. They are trying to conquer the cloud computing market. If they succeeded, internet users will no longer need to depend on centralized server farms. So, how do they create a lighting transaction speed? Usually, the transaction verification procedure in blockchain projects relies on mining. It is both time and energy-consuming.

Internet Computer, on the other hand, employs the Threshold Relay version of the proof-of-stake method to reach an agreement. In the Threshold Relay, nodes generate a random number (random beacon). It helps select the next set of nodes and drive the platform’s protocol. Next, they implement their Chain Key Technology. It splits up the smart contract function executions into update calls and query calls. The whole procedure allows them to generate a seamlessly quick transaction.
