What is Massa

The current blockchains that aim for high transaction scalability either compromise on decentralization or security. However, a revolutionary solution has emerged with Blockclique, an architecture introduced for Massa. This architecture guarantees decentralized and secure transactions while allowing for a scaling of up to 10,000 transactions per second. The Blockclique architecture is unique in its utilization of segmented transactions in a multithreaded block graph.

  • Massa merges the concepts of transaction segmentation and a multithreaded block graph structure to allow for the parallel processing of blocks with compatible transactions.
  • Massa enhances the traditional Nakamoto consensus by applying it to the scenario of parallel blocks, thereby ensuring secure and decentralized consensus through the use of Proof-of-Stake.
  • The Blockclique architecture of Massa has the capability to handle thousands of transactions per second, rivaling the speed of traditional financial systems.

The origins of the name "Massa" have multiple sources:

  • The name "Massa" has historical roots, stemming from the silver coins that were used 2500 years ago in Massalia (present-day Marseille). The founders of the project had a connection to Marseille as it was where they met and received their education.
  • The name "Massa" also embodies the goal of the project, which is to drive "Mass Adoption" through the creation of a decentralized currency.

What sets Massa apart from other blockchain projects like Solana is the fact that many of them have sacrificed decentralization for the sake of high performance. Massa, on the other hand, aims to provide both high performance and decentralization through its innovative combination of transaction segmentation and multithreaded block graph architecture, as well as its extension of the Nakamoto consensus to the case of parallel blocks using Proof-of-Stake.

The objectives of Massa are:

  • To establish a decentralized network.
  • To reach a transaction speed of 10,000 transactions per second.
  • To minimize the hardware requirements for a node to that of an average desktop computer (8 CPU cores, 16 GB of RAM, and 1 TB of HDD) to increase accessibility and enable a greater number of individuals to participate in the network.

Which investments have been made into the project by funds?

During the private sale stage, the project raised $5.8 million from 100 small funds and individual investors. Additionally, the project was awarded two grants from the French government totaling approximately $400,000. The project plans to hold a single public sale before the launch of the main network.

What kind of incentives are offered?

In addition to compensating node holders, the plan is to reward active members within the community and launch an ambassador program.
