Constellation Network is a cutting-edge and innovative project incorporating various elements of distributed ledger technologies (DLT). The project operates using a directed acyclic graph (DAG) architecture, the native DAG coin, and elements of blockchain technology. As such, Constellation Network operates a multi-layer framework for developers to build, deploy, and manage customized decentralized applications (dApps). Further, the infrastructure is purpose-built to process vast amounts of data, offering utility to big data corporations and artificial intelligence (AI) databases. This is possible with the novel proof of reputable observation (PRO) consensus mechanism incorporating machine learning protocols to cater for international-scale data validation. Also, Constellation Network presents the Hypercube development suite for building on the project’s Hypergraph transfer protocol (HGTP) or the Hypergraph network.

Furthermore, the FRAX token is the native stablecoin of the Frax Finance ecosystem. The only way to mint FRAX tokens is by locking up value within the protocol.
