Integrated distributed file storage for NFT's and Metaverse assets
KVM is fully EVM compatible while supporting precompiled assemblies for efficient compute
Rewarding computational effort fairly, by using collaborative rather than competitive consensus
The metaverse incorporates virtual worlds, payment systems, digital assets including NFT's, code and interoperability.
Catalyst has been designed and developed from the ground up with these requirements at its heart, to create a practical environment for building platforms for working with NFT's, the Metaverse and the wider Web 3.0 world.
Catalyst combines blockchain, distributed file storage for persisting larger assets and code files combined with an EVM compatible runtime environment called KVM.
Since Catalyst is written in .NET 6 with KVM supporting precombiled .NET assemblies, KVM will be extended to support smart WebAssembly contracts alongside EVM contracts.
Catalyst is initially a layer one protocol but its roadmap commits to making Catalyst a layer 2 protocol on top of Ethereum.
To support NFT and Metaverse projects that need to combine on-chain data with larger asset files and complex on and off-chain logic.
Our vision is to build a layer on top of Ethereum dedicated to NFT and Metaverse projects, in a way that rewards and incentivises users.
Learn what can be done with a light, fast and secure stack that incentivise everyone who participates.
Catalyst is a community run project that is preparing to launch under a DAOhaus DAO.
We will be running a token sale in 2022 to raise capital for continued development of the Catalyst protocol as well as creating a fund to support NFT and Metaverse projects that utilise at least one Catalyst service.
EVM compatible runtime, extended to support file actions, calls to .NET assemblies and other extended features.
Call binary processes such as .NET assemblies for complex or long running activities outside of the KVM.
Work with the native distributed ledger and the native distributed file system. Store NFT images, video, audio, artifacts and more.
Catalyst is preparing to launch a test network over the coming weeks. An alpha test network was successfully run publicly for around 9 months but was shut down during the pandemic while plans were developed for a network upgrade to .NET 6, new community governance scheme and plans for a community led token event.
Cent Finance provides a multi-chain wallet that presently supports Ethereum, Gnosis and Celo networks and will include support for Catalyst.
We will also be ensuring Catalyst will be supproted by MetaMask and WalletConnect.
