We are currently in an era of technology change and Blockchain is taking it to a whole new different level.

Blockchain is a new age technology that makes things easy, fast and better than the traditional tools we always had. Now, there are more than enough blockchain platforms but we expect a better one that will make transactions quicker, more scalable and cost-efficient. However, even blockchain comes with its own problems. Some of the problems of blockchain which are apparently preventing its worldwide adoption are poor scalability and lack of a stable ecosystem for growth. Cartesi is out to solve these problems.

Cartesi is a platform utilizing the blockchain technology that incorporates as part of its contributions, the Linux infrastructure, to make it possible to develop Decentralized Applications (DApps). The platform does not stop at the developing DApps, more so, it also has an interest in using the flexible infrastructure provided by Linux to hit other areas of the economy, such as finance, logistics, software and optimization.


Cartesi does have true potential to revolutionize blockchains, setting up the foundation for decentralized applications and services for the next generation. Cartesi understands the importance of scalable Layer-2 solutions. Smart contracts can operate without the chain, and problems can be resolved inside the chain.

On Cartesi, developers would need minimal interference in configuring their Dapp with the use of the API. The platform enables individuals to earn tokens for moving their computers in a secure, effective, and verifiable manner with minimal cost.

With the decentralized automated testing of Cartesi, developers will be able to build applications that enable the transfer and distribution of work through new DApps. This includes data analysis, computational tasks and machine learning that require specialists. These create opportunities for cheaper AI, developed by experts and bots from third parties.

Cartesi innovative applications can study the contents of many blockchains, including smart contracts, which rely on other existing smart contract details. Key applications are the connection of blockchains and services, such as future contracts and insurance markets. There are plans by Cartesi to create network port which will allow the platform to settle computing disputes, and utilizing network connections. Decentralization of services would become much simpler, creating a fully decentralized Internet.

Cartesi offers a decentralized network all the resources and functionality that are present in current operating systems. This is a totally complete Linux operating system. The platform provides an easy way to code decentralized applications that are of high standard. Cartesi is changing the trend in DApp development, transitioning the system into something closer to a real Linux computer from a spreadsheet-esque semblance.

Cartesi incorporates the blockchain’s security and financial system, thus enabling it to conduct real-world computational tasks simultaneously. Since developers are always on the lookout for solutions to make their systems and technologies more scalable, Cartesi should be the next blockchain project they look out for!


With my dependable knowledge of blockchain, Cartesi is looking to solve a very big problem in the blockchain and cryptocurrency industry and this will undoubtedly favor early adopters. This is not a direct push for investment into the network; it is a reminder that something this big is on the internet.
