The Liquidity Network

The Liquidity Network is an Ethereum based platform that aims to support millions of blockchain users around the globe. Its main goal is the mass adoption of the blockchain technology by creating a platform that's easy to use, secure, scalable, Off-chain, blockchain congestion free and with zero-fee transactions.

The Liquidity Network is a non-custodial, financial intermediary that offers payment and exchange service. It has two main components called the Liquidity Hub NO-CUST and REVIVE.


Liquidity Network Non-Custodial Off-Chain Exchange

The Liquidity Exchange is one of the Liquidity Network's initial applications. It offers the users the ability to trade with cryptocurrencies like other exchanges. But unlike other exchanges, the Liquidity Exchange does not hold custody of its users' finances, hence why it is called a Non-custodial(NO-CUST) Off-chain exchange.

As such the Liquidity Exchange does not suffer the same problems that plague most exchanges nowadays like congestion. Basically, the liquidity Exchange is very resilient to blockchain congestion as it can handle more than 10,000 transactions per second (tps). It also does not run some mining front end that some exchanges do. What's more, the Liquidity Exchange is unaffected by the excessive blockchain transaction fees that seemed to plague most exchanges.

Scalable, secure and cheap, the Liquidity Exchange is one of the best and trustworthy exchange out there.

- REVIVE

REVIVE is an integral part of the Liquidity Network that allows users to rebalance their channels hubs off-chain depending on the channel owners preference. REVIVE uses an algorithm that enables these users to securely rebalance their hubs without the fear of losing funds.

The Liquidity Network offers advantages that make it one of the best platform on the blockchain. These advantages include but not limited to:

One of the reasons why some blockchain-based platform is not that popular is because of how complicated they looked. The Liquidity Network values mainstream adoption and therefore designed the platform to be simplistic in both form and functions.
