Conclusion

This paper has presented the Core blockchain, a decentralized network with a novel Satoshi Plus consensus mechanism combining Delegated Proof of Work and Delegated Proof of Stake. In expanding Bitcoin miner protection to a parallel protocol and providing miners with costless supplemental rewards, Core Chain integrates Bitcoin's incentive alignment into a versatile smart contract platform. Resulting improvements with respect to scalability, security, efficiency, and decentralization, along with EVM compatibility, unlock the power of Bitcoin-secured decentralized applications for developers, users, and other participants.
