Layer 2 Execution Environment

System Architecture

Leviathan's Layer 2 execution environment operates parallel to Cardano’s main chain, handling complex transaction processing off-chain while settling final states on-chain.


  • Off-chain Transaction Processing: Transactions are processed in an environment that mimics the security and compliance of the main chain but operates at higher efficiency.

  • On-chain Settlement: Final states of transactions are settled on the main chain, ensuring they benefit from the blockchain's inherent security features.

System Impact

  • Scalability and Efficiency: Enables the platform to handle significantly more transactions than traditional on-chain processing.

  • Reduced Load on Main Chain: By processing transactions off-chain and only settling final states on-chain, it reduces the operational load on the Cardano main chain.
