SKALE is an open-source, customizable blockchain network that equips users and developers with the tools to create Ethereum-based decentralized applications (dApps) with high throughput and performance. SKL is the native ERC-777 standard token of the SKALE Network.

SKALE aims to reduce transaction fees and enable network participants with high throughput by introducing a scalable Web3 sidechain called SKALE chain. The architecture of SKALE is supported by SKL token holders and validators that run nodes.

The SKALE network follows a Proof of Stake (PoS) consensus mechanism that is leaderless and asynchronous. SKALE aims to solve the Ethereum scalability issue with a bridge called Interchain Messaging Agent (IMA), which enables transferring of tokens and messages. These transfers are secured using BLS threshold cryptography.

It resolves technical problems and boosts any application's performance by creating an elastic sidechain that is EVM-compatible and interoperable with Ethereum. SKALE manager is responsible for creating these sidechains. It exists on Ethereum mainnet and handles all operations, such as node creation, withdrawals, and bounties.

The SKALE network also supports Solidity, enabling developers to use the same tools and token standards on the Ethereum mainnet. They can even leverage the Web3 storage layer of the SKALE network to directly store files on the elastic chain. Considering the SKALE network can handle over 2,000 transactions per second, and Ethereum can only execute approximately 10 to 45, this project can be a prominent execution layer for many blockchains moving forward.

To add more utility value to the network, the team at SKALE labs plans to add two main extensions storage and inter-chain communication. These will enhance storage capabilities and message relays between multiple sidechains, respectively.

SKL price and tokenomics

SKL is the native multi-purpose token of the SKALE network. It has a maximum supply of 7 billion. At the time of the network launch, 4.14 billion SKL tokens were released. SKL tokens were publicly sold on ConsenSys Activate, raising over $5 million with over 3,700 purchasers. The SKL price was $0.03, and more than 167 million tokens were purchased.

More than a third of the total supply of SKL tokens went to the validator community at an annual issuance rate of 9.3 percent. An additional 25 percent of tokens were given to network supporters, including validators, delegators, and users of other sidechains. A further 20 percent was distributed to employees and the founding team, with a total vesting period of over 5 to 6 years.

About the founders

On Jan 1, 2018, SKALE was founded by CEO Jack O'Holleran and CTO Stan Kladko. Before starting SKALE, O'Holleran spent over a decade building Aktana, a company dedicated to helping life science companies with their AI-enabled Contextual Intelligence Engine.

Kladko has over 18 years of experience in cryptography and holds a Ph.D. in Physics. At Stanford University, he founded a crypto startup called Ingrian Networks, which SafeNet later acquired.

SKALE has raised a total funding amount of $22.5 million over six rounds. The initial coin offering helped raise $5 million; the rest came from top investors from Korea, the US, and Europe. Arrington Capital, Multicoin Capital, and Blockchange Ventures are a few investors in funding rounds.


What is SKALE?

SKALE is a blockchain network that is open-source and customizable. It provides users and developers with tools to build Ethereum-based decentralized applications (dApps) with high throughput and speed.

What are the benefits of holding SKL?

SKL is a multifaceted token that enables holders to participate in the network's operations as a validator, stake as a delegator, and create an "elastic sidechain" or "elastic blockchain" for a limited time as a developer. Validators can stake SKL to operate network nodes and earn rewards.

Where can I buy SKL?

Easily buy SKL tokens on the OKX TR cryptocurrency platform. OKX TR's spot trading terminal includes the SKL/USDT trading pair.

You can also swap your existing cryptocurrencies, including XRP (XRP), Cardano (ADA), Solana (SOL), and Chainlink (LINK), for SKL with zero fees and no price slippage by using OKX TR Convert.
