Welcome to the pNetwork Wiki! Here you'll find everything you need to know about joining pNetwork.
The pNetwork is the increasingly decentralized layer powering and governing the cross-chain pTokens solution as well as cross-chain pNetwork Portals.
The pNetwork is an open, public and independent network of nodes with an inbuilt governance structure. pNetwork node operators are the backbone of the pNetwork. They operate the crucial cross-chain infrastructure to ensure that smart contracts and dApp users across every blockchain have access to assets’ value, liquidity and data.
PNT, the cryptocurrency native to the pNetwork, is used to govern the system and coordinate node operator incentives. PNT holders can contribute to the success of the project by participating in the pNetwork DAO and by joining the network as node operators. Nodes can benefit from DAO staking rewards as well as peg-in and peg-out fees.
The pNetwork currently powers two main features, namely pTokens bridge and pNetwork Portals.
pTokens bridges are a cross-chain solution enabling the movement of assets across multiple blockchain environments.
Built on top of pTokens, pNetwork Portals enable smart contracts living on different blockchains to interact with each other as if they were on the same network. Among other use-cases, pNetwork Portals enable NFTs (non-fungible tokens) to be moved cross-chain.
