Super Node

Super Node is a dedicated blockchain network for a specific dApp. So you may regard a supernode as a dApp blockchain network.

From an enterprise’s viewpoint, the dApp is the business, interacting with customers, selling its service. So enterprises wants to have full controllability as well as governance.

The concept of a supernode is being introduced to support enterprises’ needs. It is independent from a hypernode with a separate computing zone. In short, a supernode is a complete blockchain running on EdenChain.

A supernode has its own consensus algorithm and data storage.  The image below shows the architecture of a supernode.


Each node stores full data and if there is new transaction data, it checks the transaction and performs consensus to verify the legitimacy of the transaction. If a majority of nodes accept the transaction through the consensus mechanism, the data will be written in data storage. In general it mimics how blockchains work. The biggest difference between a general blockchain and a supernode lies in its inherent simplicity.

One of the crucial values of a super node is its performance; a super node should process dApps’ requests with a minimum delay in order to give users an experience similar to that with which they are accustomed.

A super node has mandatory modules to fulfill its core functions. A Super node is independents from hyper nodes, and regardless of a hyper node’s availability, it can work seamlessly.
