Components of Asterizm protocol
Asterizm secures cross-chain transactions with the Asterizm Connector, an on-chain module responsible for verifying the validity and integrity of cross-chain transactions. Additionally, it involves two independent off-chain entities: Asterizm Relayers and the Client off-chain module, which are used for transmitting payloads and proofs.
Asterizm is designed with the privacy of cross-chain transactions and infrastructure modularity at the core and is aimed to provide reliability, security, and low cost of cross-chain transactions.
The Asterizm architecture eliminates the necessity for maintaining a network of validators with off-chain consensus, which typically demands significantly more time and money to validate a transaction, as validation occurs off-chain.
In Asterizm, cross-chain transaction validation happens on-chain, which significantly speeds up transaction execution and reduces costs.
