Overview of Casper Network

This document is a brief overview of Casper Network from its formation to the present and will help you better understand Casper. You can learn details about Casper Network.

The Casper Network is a fully decentralized (permissionless), scalable, and highly secure Proof-of-Stake layer 1 blockchain. Casper also solves the scalability Trilemma; it is secure, fully decentralized, and scalable/fast.

Powered by Highway, an innovative, correct-by-construction (CBC) Casper-based Proof-of-Stake consensus protocol, Casper is leveraging popular workflows, innovative developer tools, and multiple programming languages. Casper makes blockchain services easier to use, more upgradable, and more predictable, thus removing barriers to mainstream adoption.

Developers can build on Casper utilizing common languages, plus Casper has built a Solidity Compiler which allows those developing currently on Ethereum using Solidity to quickly migrate to Casper in two easy steps so that they can start to build and test their applications in the future of Ethereum today, instead of waiting 4 to 5 years from now.
