Root Network Describes Itself As

The Root Network is a layer 1 blockchain designed as a hub for the open metaverse - where anything can be connected to anything. The protocol has been purpose-built for open metaverse activations, utilizing core, UX, and digital content focused protocols to enable a seamless user experience and enhance asset interoperability. Prioritizing user experience and safety, Root Network introduces elements including account abstraction and an any token gas economy, enabling some of the world's largest content brands to onboard users seamlessly and safely.

Root Network Protocols

Core Protocols

  • NFT Runtime: Facilitates the creation and exchange of digital collectibles and tokens across various applications and experiences, eliminating the need for creators to develop their own smart contracts.
  • In-Chain Exchange: Enables developers to create liquidity for digital assets effortlessly, supporting asset trade without deploying smart contracts.
  • Digital Collectibles Protocol: Allows for the easy creation and trade of digital collectibles, with built-in mechanisms to enforce creator royalties and ensure seamless interoperability.

UX Protocols

  • Any-Token Gas Economy: Root adopts an any-token gas model, in which users are able to pay gas and network fees in assets other than the network’s native token, ROOT. At the time of writing, users are able to transact using XRP, ROOT, ASTO, and SYLO, with XRP functioning as the network’s default gas token (assets other than XRP are converted to XRP when used for fees). The ability to use “any-token” helps to simplify the user onboarding experience, and Root has plans to approve more tokens in the future. 
  • Identity Protocol and Smart Wallet Account Abstraction: Offers a secure, web2-like authentication experience, enabling users to manage their digital identity and assets through a unified account, enhancing both safety and convenience.

Metaverse Protocols

  • Asset Register: Assists developers in defining digital assets to ensure compatibility across the open metaverse, promoting richer and more engaging applications.
  • Social Data Protocol: Introduces graph-based features to support data interoperability and social networking, enriching the social fabric of the metaverse.
  • AI Protocol: Equips the network with the capability to host AI-powered collectibles, enabling new forms of content creation and interaction within the metaverse.
