What is Core DAO?
The Core DAO is a proposed blockchain designed to serve as the foundation of the decentralized internet, Web 3. It will use a new consensus mechanism called Satoshi Plus, which combines features of both Proof of Work (PoW) and Delegated Proof of Stake (DPoS) to ensure security, scalability, and decentralization. The blockchain will be Turing-complete and leverage the Bitcoin mining hashrate and Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM).
The supply of Core tokens will have a hard cap of 2.1 billion and a percentage of all block rewards and transaction fees will be burned, similar to Ethereum's "Ultra Sound Money" model. The exact percentage to be burned will be determined by the DAO. The block rewards for Core will be paid out over an 81-year period to incentivize network participants and compensate miners.
To sum up, bridging assets to Core DAO is simple and cost-effective using IceCreamSwap via a Web 3 wallet. It supports various tokens and chains, with fees varying by original network. Core DAO, underpinned by the Satoshi Plus consensus mechanism, is set to be a vital part of Web 3, offering enhanced security, scalability, and a unique burn mechanism for its tokens.
