About CKB

CKB is the layer 1 of Nervos Network, a public/permissionless blockchain. CKB uses Proof of Work and improved Nakamoto consensus to achieve maximized performance on average hardware and internet condition, without sacrificing decentralization and security which are the core value of blockchain.

CKB supports scripting in any programming language with its own CKB-VM, a virtual machine fully compatible with RISC-V ISA. CKB is a General Verification Network, its programming model focuses on state verification, leaves state generation to layer 2 applications/protocols.

Nervos project defines a suite of scalable and interoperable blockchain protocols to create a self-evolving distributed economy, CKB is among them.

Support for different platforms are organized into three tiers, each with a different set of guarantees.

Notice: The ckb process will send stack trace to sentry on Rust panics. This is enabled by default before the mainnet launch, which can be opted out by setting the option dsn to empty in the config file.
