Built on Directed Acyclic Graph( DAG) based smart contract platform. The way it's snapshot chain structure was built makes zero fee transaction possible, it also enhanced optimization of transaction with adequate reliability and security.
It uses Hierarchical Delegated Proof of Stake (HDPoS) to achieve network consensus, meanwhile supernodes will only take staking rewards and without transaction fee. Vite virtual machine is compatible with EVM and utilizes asynchronous smart contract language, Solidity++.
To make free transaction possible on the vite network, users have to stake vite for Quota instead of consuming gas. A user can also vote for Snapshot Block Producers (SBP), it is also possible for a user with unused Quota to lease it to dApps in exchange for their tokens( for example you can stake vite to recieve Vx token.
