What Is Cartesi.io? (CTSI) Complete Guide Review About Cartesi.io

What Is Cartesi.io?

Cartesi.io is taking smart contracts to the next level. It is solving the urgent problem of scalability and high fees on blockchains by implementing a variant of optimistic roll-ups. Most notably, is revolutionizing smart contract programming by allowing developers to code with mainstream software stacks. Noether is side-chain that’s optimized for ephemeral data, providing low-cost data availability to DApps.

Cartesi coin was founded in 2018 by Erick de Moura, Augusto Teixeira, Diego Nehab and Colin Steil. The founding team initially got into blockchain as a result of one of the founders, Augusto Teixeira, being academic co-author with Serguei Popov, the founder of IOTA. Serguei became one of earliest investors and advisors. Augusto had the original idea of creating a trustless AI marketplace for data scientists.

Limitless coding

Cartesi.io build smart contracts with mainstream software stacks. Take a productive leap from Solidity to the vast universe of software components supported by Linux.

Massive scalability

Enable million-fold computational scalability, data availability of large files and low transaction costs. All while preserving the strong security guarantees of Ethereum.

Privacy guarantees

From games where players conceal their data to Enterprise applications that run on sensitive data, preserve privacy on your DApps.


Cartesi coin platform for the development and deployment of scalable decentralized applications. DApps are composed of both blockchain and off-chain components. Off-chain components run inside Nodes that represent the interests of each DApp user. Nodes provide DApp developers with reproducible Cartesi Machines, where large scale verifiable computations can be run. These verifiable computations are easily integrated into smart contracts by powerful primitives that provide strong conflict resolution guarantees. More precisely, any dispute arising over the result of computations run inside Cartesi Machines can be fairly adjudicated at negligible cost on the blockchain.


A decentralized computational oracle for blockchains Descartes executes massive computational tasks off-chain, on a Linux virtual machine fully specified by a smart contract. The results of the computations are fully verifiable and enforceable on-chain by honest Descartes node runners, preserving the strong security guarantees of the underlying blockchain.

Descartes Rollups

Cartesi.io scalable smart contracts built with mainstream software stacks Descartes Rollups is a variant of optimistic rollups with interactive dispute resolution. Instead of Solidity, use countless mainstream software components to code smart contracts that run on a Linux VM. Defeat the scalability limits of Ethereum, with million-fold computational gains, while preserving the strong security guarantees of the blockchain.


High-performance side chain for data availability

Noether is Cartesi’s side chain designed for temporary data availability. It allows DApps to achieve high throughput and storage of large files with much reduced fees. Noether’s Proof of Stake system is ready now. Stake your CTSI and earn mine rewards to participate in Cartesi’s growing network of validators.

Cartesi Ecosystem

Cartesi coin buy CTSI directly with fiat currencies, store and track CTSI with the trusted partners, or trade CTSI on the world’s largest exchanges. They are continuously expanding our international reach with CTSI and its ease to acquire for users around the world.

Other related technologies

Cartesi.io new blockchain technologies emerge at such a high rate that any attempt at a comprehensive survey is doomed to become obsolete before it is even published. Nevertheless, some general trends merit discussion. Specific examples cited in the discussion should be seen as representatives of entire categories, rather than exhaustive lists.
