Chromia overview

This section covers information about the Chromia platform, its architecture and features.

📄️ System chains

Chromia is divided into multiple blockchains to achieve horizontal scalability. In this model, each node only needs to work with data related to its corresponding blockchains. This architecture increases scalability and simplifies updates, as an update of a single blockchain does not affect others. The overall system consists of several system blockchains, which are essential for Chromia functionality as well as several dapp blockchains that are specific to particular applications.
