Aion is a third-generation blockchain network that will enable any private or public sector organization to:
• Federate: Send data and value between any Aion-compliant blockchain and Ethereum.
• Scale: Provide fast transaction processing and increased data capacity to all Aion blockchains.
• Spoke: Allow the creation of customized public or private blockchains that maintain interoperability with other blockchains, but allow publishers to choose governance, consensus mechanisms, issuance, and participation.
At the root of the Aion network is a purpose-built, public, third-generation blockchain called Aion-1. Designed to connect other blockchains and manage its own robust applications, Aion-1 also provides the economic system that incentivizes interoperability in the ecosystem.
AION tokens are the fuel used to create new blockchains, monetize inter-chain bridges, and secure the overall network.
