What is Ardor?

Ardor is the first scalable blockchain platform. Ardor solves the blockchain bloat problem by dividing Nxt into a forging chain and prunable child chains. Since it is built with Nxt technology, the features of Nxt, like Asset Exchange, Dividend Payment, Messaging, Voting, Shuffling and the Monetary System will be available on the child chains.

In addition, users will be able to make certain cross chain transactions between the child chains on the platform.
As users will be able to issue their own child chains, people can use blockchain technology without having to build things from scratch.

When will Ardor Launch?

Ardor is scheduled to launch in the fourth quarter of 2017.

ARDR asset tokens have been issued that represent the real Ardor tokens that you will get when Ardor launches.
These ARDR asset tokens were distributed on the Nxt blockchain at block 1,000,000 and can be traded on a wide range of exchanges.

Be careful, JLRDA tokens should ONLY be purchased from the NRS client, v1.11.7, through the IGNIS TOKEN SALE page.

Before the launch of Ardor, there will be a one-time snapshot of all accounts with NXT.
You will receive 50%+ of whatever amount of NXT you have at that time. Like with the snapshotting for ARDR, no NXT will be burned.

Ardor; "The fundamental concept of the Nxt 2.0 design is a clean separation of „forging token“ and „transactional token“. This new flexible architecture allows users to create their own blockchains, customised to fit their needs, while drawing security from the collective eco- system of the global Nxt 2.0 platform".
