What is Cartesi?
CTSI is the native token of Cartesi, a blockchain-agnostic, layer-2 operating system for dApps with highly complex computations, and highly scalable smart contracts coded by developers in a Linux environment, without compromising decentralization. Its objective is to solve the issue of scalability and high gas fees on blockchain by allowing developers to improve smart contracts using mainstream software stacks, which they are more familiar with rather than Solidity. Cartesi uses a combination of roll-ups and side-chains and can run on top of most chains. It currently supports Ethereum, Binance Smart Chain, Matic (Polygon) and Eldron. Cartesi’s side-chain, Noether, has been developed for temporary data storage, for the Cartesi dApps that are meant to run on Ethereum. Noether enables developers to have access to inexpensive storage, allowing dApps to achieve high throughput. CTSI coin can be staked by users to earn mine rewards and become node validators in the Cartesi ecosystem. Node validators are selected by the proof of stake (PoS) system at random and are given the right to create the next block. Users can also use the CTSI token to pay fees on the network.
Cartesi (CTSI) is the 211th largest cryptocurrency in the world by market cap, valued at $378,650,864. The current price of Cartesi is $0.784431, which is -3.263% lower than yesterday.

What to consider when buying CartesiBelow are the aspects you should consider before buying CTSI:
- Scalability: Cartesi’s ability to provide high computational scalability, by providing access to large data files at low transaction costs without compromising the blockchain, makes it a very popular solution to the issues faced with the Ethereum network.
- Security: According to its website, Cartesi has implemented roll-ups called Descartes roll-up, which enable computation of smart contracts off-chain, on mainstream software. All computations executed by Descartes off-chain are fully verifiable and reproducible on-chain by node runners, thereby maintaining the security guarantees of the blockchain and preserving the decentralization aspect of blockchain. Descartes is currently live and running on several projects including Creol Environments, SimThunder and Carti. With Descartes, developers can make improvements to the smart contracts and solve the scalability limits of Ethereum.Proof of stake: The CTSI token is a proof of stake token maintained by the community of node operators on the network. This makes the native token of the blockchain integral to the operation of the system. As more dApps are added to the network, the demand for the CTSI tokens would also increase. The creator of the next block is chosen in proportion to their stake in the economy, so the network is run by a pulverized community of stakeholders. The network has also disincentivized bad behavior by locking and slashing the tokens of those responsible.
