Candy is using the Palm infrastructure to build out its marketplace. Palm is an ethereum sidechain. Candy chose to build on top of Palm infrastructure due to its token powered ecosystem, scalable infrastructure, and the commitment to the experience of their creators and collectors. Moreover, Candy chose Palm due to their mission to limit the environmental impact. Palm uses a consensus mechanism called IBFT-2, a rotating Proof-of-Authority consensus method which allows affordable transactions and nearly 0% carbon footprint. For more information on how Palm is leaving a near 0% carbon footprint, please visit here.
Palm is a nice compliment to Ethereum L1. It allows for a quick, efficient, and clean marketplace for collectors to safely trade, buy, and sell verified Candy NFTs. Additionally it provides an option to transfer NFTs to the Ethereum mainnet and buy and sell on other popular marketplaces.
