What is AppLayer?

The light at the end of the tunnel

The AppLayer Network is made up of three parts:

  • A Blockchain Development Kit (hereby denominated BDK), with extensive documentation for developers to easily build their own AppLayer's with unprecedented freedom

  • An EVM network built on top of the Blockchain Development Kit which enables builders to deploy EVM smart contracts and scale with C++ stateful pre-compiles

  • A network that allows the bridging of data and assets between these app-specific chains and external chains we call the Chain Abstraction Network (CAN)

Therefore, blockchains built using the BDK are able to communicate with each other through AppLayer.

Potential use cases

AppLayer provides all the essential tools to build a wide range of products for decentralized finance, data storage, gaming, and much more. It can power applications such as:

  • DeFi: build financial products with security and ease. Leveraging AppLayer's performance network enables a whole new generation of DeFi products such as facilitating millions of trades per second.

  • Data Storage: AppLayer makes data storage easier, more affordable, and secure. Builders can store backups of whole ledgers or fully decentralize any form of a database natively in the AppLayer network.

  • GameFi: gaming projects now have performance infrastructure to build game engines capable of leveraging a pure blockchain solution with a whole new range of in-game features.

Other potential use cases include (but not limited to):

  • Multiplayer games/servers

  • Decentralized exchange

  • Decentralized and hyper available caching for dApps’ databases

  • Decentralized e-mail

  • HR portal

  • VPN

  • Cloud services

  • Video rendering

  • E-commerce

  • Arbitrage bot

  • Blockchain-enabled utilities such as water and power

  • Supply chain and logistics
