What is Aeternity?
æternity is an open source, public blockchain based, distributed computing and asset platform, building upon pre existing decentralized p2p technology, æternity allows real world date to interact with smart contracts though oracles. Though scalability and trustless turing-complete state channels set æternity apart from other emerging blockchain projects.
æternity is trying hard to be the next-level, brand-new blockchain technology in the making, with many features that tackle current issues of blockchain systems in a graceful way.
AE are the native access tokens to the æternity platform and act as a system of accountability for the resources spent through æternity. AE is the fuel used to power any application implemented on the æternity platform., and every action on the æternity platform costs something, even if perhaps fractions of cents. AE could be the fuel for the brand new forms of trustless apps that'll can now be enabled
