Router Protocol happens to have been successful in the development of a Layer-1 blockchain. This was made possible with the effective utilization of the Cosmos’ Tendermint Consensus. This was carried out with the aim and intention of being able to correctly address issues related to extant problems that occur in blockchain interoperability.
The Router Chain that has been developed will be duly utilized for solving all issues related to safety and security and, above all, matters of upgradability. All of this will be possible to achieve with the help of the functionalities of decentralization. The chain will also be offering a modular and composable architecture in the case of true-blue cross-chain dApps, which will be created in Web3.
Router, on its own part, happens to be opening the doors for the unblocking and bringing together of bigger blockchains, the likes of which happen to be Polygon, Ethereum, and non-EVM ecosystems. This is done by making it possible for the delegation of cross-chain transactions which do not have to be carried out on-chain, like in the case of voting, fee calculations, and others, to the Router Chain, which happens to be playing the role of a data-aggregation layer.
It happens to be the framework of the Router Chain, which provides a parallel implementation of outbound requests. With the relayer network being permissionless, each and every app is able to carry out its custom relayer for the processing of outbound requests. Therefore, the outbound request from any one app has no influence on the outbound request from any other.
The Router Chain happens to be providing three layers of security, the first being the blockchain level. This comes from the underlying Byzantine Fault Tolerant Tendermint Consensus. The second layer happens to be the bridge level, where all of the inbound, as well as outbound requests, are authenticated.
In this scenario, orchestrators happen to be utilizing ECDSA (Elliptic Curve Digital Signature Algo). The third layer happens to be the application level, where it is possible for dApps to have their own individual authenticators for signing the contract on the Router Chain, after which the data is handed over to the outbound module, along with the destination chain.
It is possible for cross-chain dApps that have been created on Router Chain to be able to interact with just about any blockchain ecosystem. The framework of the Router permits stateful interactions to be made amongst the contracts on one chain with another, with aspects of safety in place and in a decentralized way. The dApps that have been created with the usage of the framework of Router are able to write custom logic for starting activities in reply to the external changes.
A prime feature of the Router Chain happens to be customizability. It is possible for meta transactions to be incorporated, creating more user-friendliness. The chain also provides app-specific linking, middleware contracts created with the usage of CosmWasm positioned on the Router Chain, and logic in the processing of inbound requests from one chain. There are four frameworks related to Web3 projects for the customization of the interoperability requirements. They are the OmniChain framework, the CrossTalk framework, the Voyager Suite, as well as the Router Chain Core.
