Relational Database + Blockchain = Relational Blockchain (Chromia Blockchain)
The relational model has been the gold standard for database management for the last five
decades. Rooted in mathematics and logic, it is known to be able to model complex data in an
efficient way. For this reason, and the reasons stated above, we consider the relational data model
to be the lynchpin of our blockchain platform.
Chromia is a general-purpose platform which is suitable for almost all kinds of dapps.
We believe that a blockchain serves the role of a shared database within a decentralized
application ecosystem. For this reason, Chromia is designed and optimized to serve the role of a shared database in the best way possible.
It is particularly well suited to cases requiring high I/O capacity or involving management of complex data sets. Massively multiplayer online games (MMOGs) are an example of such a case. Chromia is capable of hosting entire game worlds in the blockchain, making sure that they evolve according to predetermined rules and ensuring that no one can cheat.
