The Sparq protocol is the result of a deep analysis of scalability in the new blockchain paradigm. With solutions like Avalanche providing tools like subnets for decentralized applications scaling horizontally, Sparq was born out of a desire for increased flexibility and speed to unlock the potential of subnets beyond what was conceivable and is now an avalanche of unlimited possibilities.
Sparq is a protocol with tools to build subnets and decentralized applications with record-breaking transaction speeds to make what was once impossible possible.
Sparq offers great value at a series of services at the protocol, starting with a bridge that processes transactions from any EVM chain on and off the Sparq network.
The Sparq bridge is interoperable with any chain to provide a seamless communication of smart contracts and transfer of assets.
Sparq is language-agnostic. Meaning any builder can choose any language and build their decentralized application or service with confidence and skip the learning curve of smart contract development.
Sparq’s C++ architecture makes it fast, lightweight, and highly optimizable, enabling its use for an endless number of decentralized applications such as:
DeFi: high-frequency trading (up to 3M trades per second)
Data storage: Decentralized databases and data storage
Gaming: Sparq is perfect for GameFi as its C++ infrastructure allows entire game engines to be built on top of it, unlocking endless possibilities for this area.
Avalanche Summit 2022 Hackathon
Æverest ++ was the first stage in the development of Sparq. The name was taken during the Hackathon days at the Avalanche summit 2022. The project had a simple goal of building a deterministic subnet that met two key requirements: to support high throughput and be built using C++.
These requirements were successfully met by achieving the goal of building a subnet made in C++ that reached an average of 13K TPS (without any optimization) in less than three days, thus winning the Best custom VM subnet implementation.
