Nervos Network is an open-source blockchain platform. It consists of multiple blockchain layers that are designed for different functions. The foundational layer is known as the Common Knowledge Base, whilst the native cryptocurrency of this layer is called CKB. This foundational layer uses a proof-of-work consensus model. Other blockchains on the platform can use proof-of-stake consenus models. Smart contracts and decentralized applications can be deployed on any layer.
