What Is Constellation (DAG)?

Constellation (DAG) is a protocol that uses a directed acyclic graph architecture to achieve a consensus that is, in theory, is capable of infinite scalability. With the DAG protocol and custom state channels, Constellation is driving the evolution of smart contracts by allowing data sources to be integrated into distributed ledger technology (DLT).

The company was launched in 2017 and the DAG roadmap dates back to April 2018. When developing the project, the founding team decided to rethink the usual solutions to many of the problems for existing blockchains, such as scalability and centralization. Constellation is designed to enable the secure processing of big data, offering the ability to connect to external datasets through easy-to-use APIs. Its technology is facilitated by a change in the principle of building consensus via a serverless architecture.
