The CKByte Token ($CKB)

The Nervos CKB (Common Knowledge Base) is the layer 1, Proof-of-Work (PoW) public blockchain protocol of the Nervos Network. It allows any crypto-asset to be stored with the security, immutability and permissionless nature of Bitcoin while enabling smart contracts, layer 2 scaling and captures total network value through its crypto-economic design and native token, the CKbyte.
