Hathor Network

Hathor Architecture

Hathor can be described as a scalable and easy-to-use distributed ledger to support light financial transactions and contracts. It is also a consensus platform, but its architecture is novel; it is a hybrid one designed by combining Directed Acyclic Graph (DAG) and blockchain technologies. Basically, it is a blockchain inside a DAG, and both are intertwined. When the number of transactions is low, the blockchain ensures security, and when the number increases significantly, DAG takes over.
