Deploying DApps on Cartesi solves the on-chain computational complications.

The blockchain has grown a lot since it's inception in 2009, it has moved from just Bitcoin to be problem-solving. It has been solving problems (both old and upcoming new ones), across fields like technologies, business innovations, financial institutions, public governance and so on. The transparency it brings is part of why many keep adopting it.

Blockchain works as a peer-to-peer network where those involved maintain protocols (safe) in form of block of information that can not be altered. To be able to perform a Blockchain operation, it requires complex computational operations. The blockchain serves as a safe for information transactions in a decentralized way.

This has made developers eager to build Applications on the blockchain as it is decentralized (called DApps), and because dispute can be easily settled due to the fact that it is transparent. It is to be noted that performing any operation on the blockchain will require complex computational operations, which most times lead to high gas fees.

As the world keeps moving, DApps need to process more data that are most times massive. Deploying DApps to process massive data on the blockchain will incur a lot of cost, and this is part of the many problems Cartesi is bringing solutions to.

Cartesi is a layer-2 platform for the development and deployment of scalable decentralized applications. DApps deployed on Cartesi are composed of blockchain and off-chain components. The off-chain component is highly optimised to solve the the problem of processing massive data and running large computations.

The off-chain components inside Cartesi run under a complete Linux operating system that provides the full ecosystem required by complex computations, while keeping it secured. To make this easy for developers to deploy their DApps, the team behind Cartesi introduced Descartes SDK.

The Descartes SDK makes it possible for developers to build computationally intensive DApps with all software tools available for a full Linux operating system. This DApps will preserve decentralization and the security that comes with the Ethereum blockchain.

This means developers need not worry about high fees due to running massive computations or processing large data as the provision is been made already for it to run off-chain, it's finalization can be done on-chain if there is a disagreement between the parties involved.

Computations can be easily done off-chain secured when DApps are deployed on Cartesi, making developers free from the limitations of the blockchain. One can say developers get to select the best run-time environment in which to host each part of their DApps.

You can build your powerful, scalable and secured DApps on Cartesi, there are also seasoned developers waiting on discord to help you out just in-case you need advice:

There is also an Incubation Program going on, where you get to win $80K+ in rewards for building and deploying your DApp on Cartesi. Read more here:
