Ether Universe is an international cross-chain project that was co-initiated by experienced developers from China, South Korea, the U.K and Ukraine which adopts the world's leading cross chain 3.0 technology.

Ether Universe is the world's first project that applies the mixed technology of "notary scheme + sidechain" where the sidechains allow high-speed communication while the notary scheme supports efficient value exchange which demonstrates its great potential in technology innovation. Ether Universe also adopts the latest DPoS consensus mechanism which perfectly provides balance among security, efficiency, and decentralization.

Ether Universe will also develop a hot/cold cross-chain wallet to protect users' digital assets. Cold wallets are also known as offline wallets that are completely immune to hacker attacks. Ether Universe set up 48 super nodes globally among which even 23 are physically sabotaged, the secure operation of the entire system can still be maintained. Each node is also equipped with a super firewall that could stop attacks up to 13 GB/s.

On efficiency, Ether Universe supports 400K transactions per second which is 20,000 times of the speed of Ethereum. Only 2-30 seconds is needed to confirm each transaction which means any transaction could be completed within 30 seconds.

The highly efficient and energy-saving DPoS consensus mechanism combined with 48 super nodes around the global keeps a good balance between decentralization and efficiency.
