Pastel is the world’s first fully dedicated, decentralized NFT platform allowing users to register, store, and trade ‘provably rare’ assets. The platform gives creators a way to securely connect with fans and sell unique, limited edition digital assets –without the high fees or storage constraints of other crypto projects. Pastel also allows for the development of third-party applications to sit on top of the Network, enabling developers to enjoy the scalable registration features, storage processes, and security of the broader network. By leveraging a purpose-built native blockchain, Pastel deploys a number of key features such as a deep-learning based duplicate detection system to ensure proven authenticity.
The network is a fork from Z-cash, running the Proof-of-Work (PoW) algorithm Equihash and also supports Supernodes, which provide computational resources to the network to support asset registration, distribution, and permanent storage. Pastel is managed by world-class developers, cryptographers, and technologists, supported alongside an experienced and extensive network of marketers, influencers, and third-party agencies. Pastel is backed by key stakeholders including Innovating Capital, a prominent venture fund.
