aelf is an open-source blockchain network that facilitates operations for different business needs. It works by connecting main chains to multiple side chains so that developers can run DApps on side chains and isolate their resources. aelf enables secure communication between these chains, increasing interoperability and establishing an autonomous system where developers can test different applications.
One of aelf’s main products is aelf Enterprise, which uses aelf’s modular blockchain solution to help businesses manage supply chains, establish credit, protect property, or incentivise users. For example, the ELF token is used to reward block-producers, distribute dividends, and incentivise governance voting.
