What is High Performance Blockchain (HPB)?

Introduction

High Performance Blockchain is a main-net, Layer 1, fully EVM compliant blockchain for decentralized applications and enterprise blockchain deployments in one interoperable, highly scalable ecosystem.
High Performance Blockchain, also often referred to by the name of its native coin HPB, is the first decentralized smart contracts platform built for the scale of global Decentralized Finance (DeFi) and global Gaming Finance (GameFi), with super-fast transaction speeds of 5,000 transactions per second (TPS) ultra-low gas fees (~$0.0001 per transaction) and an on-chain provable, per-block random number generator with 6-second transaction finality. Ethereum developers can quickly build on High Performance Blockchain as Solidity works out-of-the-box.
HPB uses the Blockchain Offload Engine (BOE) card installed in all Master Nodes to achieve lightening speeds, ultra-high security and hardware-based random number generating (HRNG)

HPB

HPB is the native coin of High Performance Blockchain. When the MainNet was launched, 100 Million HPB coins were minted. It is an asset used to pay for fees, and provide a basic unit of account. HPB is tracked on both CoinMarketCap and CoinGecko

Proof of Performance (PoP) Consensus

HPB utilizes the Proof of Performance consensus algorithm (PoP). This algorithm takes into account three key factors when choosing an HP-node: network bandwidth (50% weight), ranking of community voting (35% weight) and number of HPB coins held (15% weight). This way all nodes are incentivized to add as much performance as possible, with Dynamic Node Election generating HP-Nodes from the existing pool of Candidate Nodes every 200 blocks.

Key Features

On-Chain Provable Random Numbers

The only blockchain in the world capable of providing on-chain, per-block, provable random numbers, crucial for gambling, gaming, lotteries and many more use cases.

Hardware Acceleration

Utilizes the Blockchain Offload Engine (BOE) card for speed, security, scalability and random numbers.

Speed

5000 TPS globally with 6s block confirmations.

Scalability

Highly-scalable in accordance with ever-increasing requirements for DeFi and GameFi.

Security

Ensures stronger security guarantees well above the 51% standard of other networks.

Sustainability

Uses energy-efficient Proof of Performance consensus algorithm rather than Proof of Work.

Smart Contract Support

Supports the creation of Solidity smart contracts and your favorite Ethereum tools like Remix, Metamask and Truffle.
