Cartesi was founded in 2018 by Erick de Moura, Augusto Teixeira, Diego Nehab, and Colin Steil. It provides three products—Descartes, Descartes Rollups, and Noether. Descartes allows developers to complete heavy computations on a Linux virtual machine, which allows blockchain verification. The Descartes Rollup feature is meant to be a more scalable smart contract solution to Ethereum. Noether is a side-chain project that allows Dapps to temporarily move and store files for lower fees.

What is Cartesi coin?

Cartesi is a layer-2 scaling infrastructure that allows complex computations outside the blockchain. It enables developers to build smart contracts using mainstream software stacks like Linux instead of using blockchain-specific developer tools. It solves the problems of scalability and high fees on blockchains. Cartesi Coin (CTSI) is a utility token for this network. Stakers receive CTSI rewards by staking their tokens and participating in the network.
