IOST Blockchain- An Ideal Home for your dApps

For DeFi decentralized applications to satisfactorily compete with traditional applications, the underlying network must be fast, meshing perfectly with the objective of DApp launchers. Among the competition, IOST — an enterprise-grade, decentralized and ultra-fast network oiled with a proof-of-believability consensus algorithm — is building a robust portfolio by offering developer-friendly features and environments. 

The IOST platform emerged as a response to the scalability problem, aiming to tackle the issue once and for all. IOST implements an array of technologies, including a proof-of-believability algorithm and high-performance virtual machine technology, all of which are supposed to offer higher TPS rates of up to 8,000 transactions per second.

Since 2019, IOST has offered a holistic dapp ecosystem and continued to make inroads in the budding DeFi and NFT space with multiple strategic partnerships and emerging on-chain projects — such as stablecoins (HUSD, JPYA, USDA), NFT Marketplace (TOKENLINK, Revival, RIZIN FIGHTING COLLECTION) and the newest Yokozuna Finance. 

Developer-friendly features that have no congestion and no high gas fees, as seen in the Ethereum and Javascript smart contract languages, are the reasons many developers choose to launch DeFi projects on IOST. A transaction fee at no cost also guarantees users the convenience and accessibility of using the applications on the IOST chain.
