Syscoin’s unique approach deals with the main criticism of Bitcoin and Ethereum (ETH/USD). Its POW security is essentially a green energy solution thanks to merge mining. It reuses resources, which are being spent on Bitcoin’s gold standard security.

Syscoin will make it possible for all EVM-based projects to benefit from Syscoin NEVM’s scalability and low fees through solidity and full EVM compatibility, making ETH 2.0 promises unnecessary.

ETH projects can migrate to Syscoin and save on fees

Projects running on Ethereum can migrate to the Syscoin Platform and save on almost the full amount of transaction fees, passing the savings on to their users.

Jagdeep Sidhu, Syscoin’s Lead Core Developer, commented:

Syscoin will utilize the best features of the top two cryptocurrencies, namely Bitcoin and Ethereum. Hence, Syscoin will provide the security offered by Bitcoin while maintaining the programmability of Ethereum. Scalable applications will be mounted on this system via ZKPs which will introduce our proposed decentralized cost model on Ethereum gas fees.

Phase 2 to bring lightning speeds through ZK rollups

Phase 2 of the NEVM launch of Syscoin will bring ZK rollups and an impressive boost to speeds of up to 210k TPS in the first quarter of next year. In Q3, the platform will introduce its proprietary Validium technology as part of phase 3. It will achieve a speed of 4 million TPS, ensuring the Syscoin Platform remains viable over the long term.

Partnerships with leading digital platforms

Among Syscoin’s partners in the NEVM initiative are Gold Standard DAO, a decentralized reserve currency backed by gold, Luxy, a powerful and intuitive NFT marketplace, Pegasys, the first DEX & AMM built on Syscoin’s NEVM, Orai, the world’s first AI Oracle blockchain, and more.
