Penta (PNT) Intro
Penta (also referred to as “Penta Network” or “PNT”) is an underlying blockchain infrastructure and protocol for a new-generation network of blockchain and values. It aims to build on five dimensions (i.e. entity, trust, value, liquidity and scenario) to connect a blockchain with other blockchains, centralized systems and off-chain values. To achieve this, Penta specifically puts in place ten core technologies so as to ensure interactions in the blockchain world in a universally- benefitting manner.
The core architecture of Penta is the connection among the five dimensions, i.e. entity, trust, value, scenario and liquidity. Penta would become a platform that helps connect the world of blockchain and shape a more convenient future.
