AITA Network is?
A high scalable, incentive and secure blockchain based on reputation, a well-studied concept in peer-to-peer network.
In the latest testnet on AWS, AITA Network has achieved VISA level TPS with sharding protocol estimated time to fail >4823 years.
  • Unique
    AITA network involves the concept of reputation to monitor the behavior of all validators and creates a dual-chain scheme: reputation chain and transaction chain to separate transaction confirmation and consensus and enhance the performance.
  • Incentive
    In AITA network, the reward of validators are given based on validators’reputation scores. Thus all validators have the incentive to maintain the network well so they can achieve high profit.
  • Scalable & Secure
    AITA network achieves scalability with sharding. The sharding scheme is enhanced with reputation scheme. As a result, the sharding process of AITA network is effective and secure.
  • Efficient & Portable
    AITA network can identify validators with more capability and loyalty to improve network total performance. Other blockchain can integrate our reputation scheme as an extra layer to benefit their blockchain projects.
Who We Are
AITA is a team comprised of prestigious professors, accomplished entrepreneurs and experienced engineers. The team has pioneered the way in blockchain infrastructure construction and is dedicated to develop a more secure and fast sharding protocol for open blockchain.
