Frequently asked questions

We are your Universal Passport to the Blockchain.

Put simply, we are an open source project, collection of protocols, and public blockchain ecosystem intent on solving your biggest blockchain gripes.

The Common Knowledge Base is a Layer 1, Proof of Work and Store of Value blockchain but with Layer 2 scaling and smart contract capabilities. This melding of two key blockchain traits speaks to our core goal to be your Universal Passport to the Blockchain.
Why Nervos? We have no competitors.

The interoperability conudrum has left blockchain in a siloed and isolated state. We aim to correct this by being Your Universal Passport to blockchain.

The Nervos Network will be the answer to universal applications by acting as the foundational layer to the blockchain, enabling builders and users full movement through the ecosystem as Layer Zero.
Rather ask: 'What can't be built on Nervos?'

The Nervos Network welcomes innovation and creativity and empowers the next generation of applications through powerful and pliable interoperability.

Developer flexibility is a primary focus as we want you to create the next great digital masterpiece with us, and we want your invention to travel around the entire blockchain ecosystem in one simple step.

Every good blockchain project needs a good token.

The CKB Token ($CKB) is the native token of the Nervos Blockchain. This token is important because it wears many different hats.

$CKB is a minable, proof-of-work token that can be likened to Bitcoin in its store of value functions. However, it has a touch of Ether to it when used in executing smart contracts.
$CKB can do it all, and more.

$CKB can be used to store your assets, it can execute your smart contracts, or even be used to rent out your space on the Nervos cell model blockchain.

$CKB's unique crypto-economic design has allowed it to branch out of the usual siloed functionality of other cryptocurrencies. It is an ideal use case for store of value and it can also be a value token behind smart contracts.
A year like no other, but a good one for Nervos.

We opened Your Universal Passport the Blockchain. We showed you a community-built Dex and welcomed stablecoins. COFFEE token showed off our SUDT (Simple User Defined Tokens), and NFTs on Nervos have also kicked off well.

For you developers, there has been a flurry of tools including Godwoken, Polyjuice, Lumos and Capsule.
We're looking to expand our big picture goals in 2021.

The Universal Passport to the Blockchain will take you further in 2021 as we aim to make interoperability more standardized and user friendly as we cut out the current cross-chain issues and eliminate the barriers to entry for users.

Additionally, the ever-changing waves of the blockchain space will always be considered as we polish our DeFi solutions, NFTs, SUDTs, Stablecoins, and more.
