Ethereum vs PascalCoin
What problem does this service solve?
|Ethereum is a general purpose blockchain with a smart contract functionality that can be implemented to automatically execute certain functions. The Ethereum blockchain and its native currency Ether, are a central components of the entire blockchain ecosystem. A large number of other tokens are built upon its platform, and Ether currently represents around 15% of the total market capitalization of all digital currencies.||PascalCoin increases transaction speeds by eliminating the need for all nodes in a network to maintain the entire blockchain history.|
Ethereum is a blockchain-based computing platform and operating system whose core innovation is enabling smart contracts. Ethereum's smart contract functionality, and versatile scripting language, have made it the most popular network for creating decentralized applications. What makes Ethereum different from Bitcoin is that its primary purpose is to serve as a general purpose blockchain for creating DApps, and not as a payment network. Ethereum was created by Vitalik Buterin. It was launched in July 2015 and has become one of the most important blockchain platforms in the industry. Ether is the native currency of the Ethereum blockchain and can can be used as a transfer of value, as well as a form of compensation for mining. The Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM) executes scripts using a network of public nodes. "Gas" is used as an internal transaction pricing mechanism that decides how resources are used on the network.
PascalCoin is the first blockchain that can be deleted, and reduces the dependency of the entire blockchain history to verify transactions. It is a Proof-of-Work (PoW) cryptocurrency that places a strong emphasis on achieving the same level of scalability as credit card networks such as VISA. Pascal's architecture is based on an innovative cryptographic structure called the SafeBox. It facilitates faster transactions by storing account balances separately from the blockchain. The SafeBox only uses the last 100 blocks on the chain to update transaction history. This allows the network nodes to synchronize much faster while preserving the security of the blockchain, and reducing the computing resources needed to maintain it.
