An Overview of SKALE

Quick Take

  • SKALE is an Ethereum-based network of sidechains with increased throughput 
  • SKALE’s architecture leverages containerization and distributed computing to allow a single node to run multiple sidechains in parallel
  • SKALE’s native token, SKL, is not used to pay gas fees, which is unlike that of typical Layer 1s tokens
  • There appears to be waning interest in SKALE’s validator community, but a growing one in their user and developer community
