The RChain is a new blockchain platform in a formal model of decentralized and concurrent computation. The cooperative is leveraging the model through correct-by-construction software development to compositional, produce, concurrent and infinitely scalable blockchain. According to RChain Architecture document, “to become a blockchain solution with industrial-scale utility. RChain must provide content delivery at the scale of Facebook and support transaction set the speed of Visa.” The blockchain solution concluded that the near-term, and current blockchain architectures to meet the requirements of users.
The RChain platform is supported by the Rho Virtual Machine with three characteristics which are independence, performance, and scalability.
- Scalability: as the RChain platform grows, the nodes initialize a new instance of RhoVM to help in managing the road. The process allows the platform to scale linearly while keeping consistency, code complexity and performance constant.
- Independence: each instance of RhoVM executes an independent set of smart contracts on an independent network and blockchain only when necessary. This design is built with self-sufficiency in mind. It also represents a victory unique to RChain.
- Performance: the RhoVM instances are lightweight and multi-threaded so that multiple high-performance instances can exist on a single node. The application helps RChain achieve unprecedented availability, response time and open a new landscape of decentralized applications suitable for the modern market.
