Aeternity is a next-level, brand new blockchain technology in the making, with many features that tackle current issues of blockchain systems—scalability, privacy and transaction speed-- in an elegant way. Aeternity has several unique features that make it different from other blockchains. Its technoloty aims to be ready to mainstream adoption by providing three key elements, one channel users interact with each other instantly and privately. Business interactions are kept off chain without having to expose transactions or smart contracts publicly. There is no limit to the volume of transactions being processed at the same time.
AE are the access tokens to the Aeternity blockchain and act as a unit of account for the resources spent on Aeternity. AE are the energy (or “crypto-fuel”) used to power any application implemented on the platform. Every action (and even inaction) on the Aeternity platform costs something, even if only fractions of cents.AE are the fuel for the new types of trustless apps that will be enabled.
