JaiHo Chain Documentation
Welcome to the JaiHo Chain documentation site!
Please note that both the JaiHo Chain software and this documentation site will improve over time and is still a work-in-progress.
Be sure to engage with our community channels to stay updated.
Have fun trading and see you on chain!
What is JaiHo Chain?
JaiHo Chain is an innovative solution to bring programmability and interoperability to JaiHo Chain. JaiHo Chain relies on a system of PoA consensus that can support short block time and lower fees. The most bonded validator candidates of staking will become validators and produce blocks. The double-sign detection and other slashing logic guarantee security, stability, and chain finality.
Please read the FAQ to get started.
What can I do with JaiHo Chain?
The purpose of the new blockchain and DEX is to create an alternative marketplace for issuing and exchanging digital assets in a decentralized manner.
- Send and receive JaiHo
- Issue new tokens to digitalize assets, and use JaiHo Chain as underlying exchange/transfer network for the assets
For developers, you can also:
JaiHo Chain, JaiHo boasts smart contract functionality and compatibility with the Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM). The design goal here was to leave the high throughput of JaiHo Chain intact while introducing smart contracts into its ecosystem.
Because JaiHo is EVM-compatible, it launched with support for the rich universe of Ethereum tools and DApps. In theory, this makes it easy for developers to port their projects over from Ethereum. For users, it means that applications like MetaMask can be easily configured to work with TC. Seriously – it’s just a matter of tweaking a couple of settings. Check out Use MetaMask for JaiHo Chain to get started.
- Send and receive JaiHo
- Explore the transaction history and blocks on the chain, via JaiHo SCAN, API and node RPC interfaces.
Developers can also:
- Issue new tokens to digitalize assets
- Run a full node to listen to and broadcast live updates on transactions, blocks, and consensus activities
- Develop wallets and tools to help users use Dapps
A token protocol on JaiHo which is compatible with ERC20. It extends ERC20 and contains more interfaces, such as
decimals. Read the full proposal here: https://github.com/Jaiho/jaiho-chain
JaiHo (and Other Coins) MainNet Switch
JaiHo Coin (JaiHo) was an ERC20 token on the Ethereum network.
After the launch of JaiHo Chain, JaiHo Coin (JaiHo) is being converted into native JaiHo tokens on the main network via the exchange platform at jaihoscan.com, a pragmatic and efficient way to perform the initial token swap.
JaiHo Chain is ready for other projects to migrate their tokens to take advantage of performant transactions with more liquidity options and native marketplace features.
More information about how projects can set themselves up for this (via jaihoscan.com or partners) will come soon.
