Enterprise-ready blockchain platform.
Insolar is building a 4th generation blockchain platform for business aimed to enable seamless interactions between companies and unlock new growth opportunities. In addition to the blockchain platform, Insolar will provide blockchain services and ecosystem support for companies that are looking to develop and deploy blockchain solutions. Insolar will feature most complete and secure set of production-ready business blockchain tools and services to quickly build or launch blockchain enterprise applications, accelerating the progression path from initial proof-of-concept to full-scale production.
The world’s most innovative companies in finance, logistics, consumer goods, energy, healthcare, transportation, manufacturing and others will be turning to Insolar to create applications and networks that deliver tangible business success. They recognise that even in today’s digital economy, vast amounts of value continue to be trapped inside processes and organisations that don’t connect. Insolar is their remedy, helping them discover and design business value in blockchain networks — starting, accelerating and innovating strategies that replace longstanding business friction with trust and transparency. Delegating trust to a blockchain means that businesses can pursue broader networks, onboard new partners, and enter new ecosystems with ease. Blockchain-based networks that support multiparty collaboration around shared, trusted data and process automation across organisational boundaries bring benefits at many levels, starting with efficiency gains and culminating in reinventing how entire industry ecosystems operate.
Insolar is a global team of 60+ people in North America and Europe, including a 35-strong engineering team with practical blockchain engineering know-how, and 10 leading blockchain academics from major institutions (York University, ETH Zurich, Princeton).
Blockchain network layer.
- Support of heterogeneous network topology.
- Network routing with a host or host group becoming relays for others hosts.
- Ability to limit number of gateways to corporate host group via relays to keep the host group secure.
Record storage engine backed by BadgerDB.
Various engines for smart contract execution:
- wasm - WebAssembly implementation of smart contracts.
Application module describes interaction of system components with each other.
Every component of the system is a
SmartContract. Members of the system are given the opportunity to build their own dApps by publishing smart contracts in
Domains define the visibility scope for the child contracts and their interaction policies. Actually,
Domain is subclass of

Provides configuration parameters for all Insolar components and a helper for configuration resources management.

Go to the package directory:
Install dependencies and build binaries:
It will generate bootstrap data and launch a number of nodes. Default number is 5, you can uncomment more nodes in
After node processes are started you will see messages like “NODE 3 STARTED in background” in log and a PulseWatcher will be started.
When you see
Ready in Insolar State you can run test scripts and benchmarks:
bin/apirequester -k=.artifacts/launchnet/configs/ -u=http://127.0.0.1:19101/api
This tool runs a scenario: creates a number of users with wallets and transfers some money between them. For the first time, the script does it sequentially, upon subsequent runs — concurrently.
-k: Path to root user keypair. All requests to create a new user must be signed by the root user.
-u: Node API URL. By default, the first node listens on the
127.0.0.1:19101port. It can be changed in configuration.
bin/benchmark -c=4 -r=25 -k=.artifacts/launchnet/configs/
-k: Same as above, path to root user keypair.
-c: Number of concurrent threads in which requests will be sent.
-r: Number of transfer requests that will be sent in each thread.
After testing, you can stop all nodes by pressing Ctrl+C.
