Build on the

Edgeware is built on Parity Substrate and features a combination of EVM, WASM and Rust-based pallets, giving developers modularity, easy deployment, and deep runtime features.

Technical Features

Edgeware is a smart contract blockchain that compiles to a client runtime, a blob of WebAssembly (Wasm) code that may be built and run natively or executed within a Wasm virtual machine. Either way, when an Edgeware native binary is compiled, it includes a Wasm virtual machine which can be used to execute later versions of the client runtime downloaded from the network.

The client runtime interfaces with networking code and other components provided by Parity Substrate. Substrate includes libp2p networking, PBFT consensus, proof-of-stake block validation and finality [substrate]. Ultimately, the client is only responsible for downloading, executing, and validating blocks from the network.

  • NPoS

    Nominated Proof of Stake consensus is one of the core pillars of true decentralization of Edgeware.


    Edgeware has the best of both worlds; EVM for compatibility and WASM for performance/efficiency.

  • Security via Rust

    Edgeware's core architecture is built on Parity's Substrate and written in Rust proving next-gen security.

  • Pallets (Treasury, Identity)

    Edgeware has integrated various modular pallets providing every features one could ask for at every stage.

  • Block time

    Scalability is no more a concern with 6 seconds of block generation time and 12-18 seconds of finality in the Edgeware network.

  • Weight based transactions

    For Edgeware's weight-based transaction(s) fees are charged before the execution, indirectly reducing the chances of gas wars and also transaction failures.
