App Chains

App chain systems offer another enticing infrastructure option for developers to host their applica- tions in a decentralized fashion. Platforms like Cosmos, Avalanche, and Near all offer their app chain frameworks to enable projects to effortlessly launch their proprietary blockchains. A major drawback for app chains, how- ever, is their inherent need to bootstrap and sustain their own security and decentralized networks. This can be burdensome for new projects who have limited resources. Exocore allows app chains to either borrow external tokens or engage in union restaking to achieve a sufficient security level. Moreover, app chains can effortlessly access a vast pool of seasoned node operators within the Exocore ecosystem without having to source them individually.
