about gear

What is Gear?

Gear is creating a network to make deploying on Polkadot as easy & efficient as possible.

This will enable developers to build their dApps on Polkadot and Kusama, to take advantage of the benefits of their respective ecosystems, without the traditional significant time and financial expenses.

The Gear Protocol technology is based on three pillars

These are the Actor Model, Persistent Memory Concept and WASM. This combination provides asynchronous messages, parallel computation, allocation and deallocation of memory which brings unique speed and scalability. This way, the Gear Protocol will be the fastest L1 with Proof-of-Stake consensus.

  • Actor Model

    A well-known approach used in high frequency parallel computation, this model ensures asynchronous messaging and memory parallelism by design.Ensuring security, anonymity, transaction efficiency and as a result network speed, it stands as on of the core pillars of the Gear Protocol. Want to learn more about how it works? Check our Wiki.

  • Persistent Memory

    The Persistent Memory concept is another novelty we brought to Web3. It provides an innovative solution to program storage with clever and effective memory virtualization techniques. All you need is to code regular programs like in Web2 world, no need to be an expert in blockchain-specific programming. Check our Wiki to find more detailed information.

  • WASM (WebAssembly)

    Offering Native speed execution and support for standard programming languages, WebAssembly has been integrated by Gear to create an environment for fast, secure and flexible execution not just for smart-contracts but for onchian programs. Opening the door to new generation of applications. Sounds interesting? Check Wiki to dive in!

to Develop

The main engine of the Gear network is a smart contract module. In Gear’s case, any smart contract is a WebAssembly program compiled in different languages, such as Rust, C, C++, etc. It has a low entry barrier for developers from outside the crypto world because they can build smart contracts in a familiar environment. It is easier for developers to experiment with smart-contract programming languages.

  • Persistent memory for immutable programs
  • Asynchronous message handling
  • A minimal, intuitive, and sufficient API surface for blockchain context

To Scale

The problem with becoming a Polkadot parachain is that there is an extremely high entry cost as thousands of projects are competing against each other to win one of a limited number of slots. On top of that, deploying as a parachain can be very time consuming and in some cases, it can even take up to a year!

However by deploying on Gear, developers can launch their dApps easily & efficiently and enter the interoperable Polkadot ecosystem without having to win an auction or become a parachain. This means that developers can enter one of the most promising blockchain networks without having to cough up the significantly high financial and time costs.

Gear makes deploying your dApps cheap, fast and efficient.

Gear up, let's build!

Below are a few examples of the most common use cases for building on the Gear Network. To make your life easier, we’ve already curated some solutions that you can model and tinker with to make your project unique to you. Explore, have fun and begin working on building your dApp that'll change the world!

  1. Decentralized Finance (DeFi)

    A blockchain based form of finance that does not rely on centralized financial institutions, instead utilizing smart contracts and blockchain technology to empower users and transcend borders.
    Show example
  2. Decentralized Autonomous Orgs (DAOs)

    An innovative organization represented by rules encoded into smart contracts that runs autonomously and without the requirement of centralised individuals and parties.
    Show example
  3. Non-fungible Tokens (NFTs)

    A way to represent any asset on the blockchain, to enable easier and more efficient trade and management.
    Show example
  4. Staking

    A method that enables people to lock some of their cryptocurrencies as a way to contribute to securing a blockchain network.
    Show example
  5. Wallets

    A device, program or service that securely stores an individual's cryptocurrency without third party sovereignty.
    Show example
  6. Tools&Explorers

    A search engine that allows you to search for a particular piece of information on a blockchain.
    Show example
  7. Web3/eCommerce

    The third generation of internet services for websites and applications that will focus on using blockchain-based technology to provide more intelligent, connected and open services.
    Show example
  8. Oracles

    An important third party service that provides blockchains and smart contracts with “off-chain” data from the physical world.
