Background: Blockchain technology has revolutionized various industries by providing decentralized, transparent, and secure transaction networks. However, as blockchain adoption grows, scalability and congestion issues become increasingly prevalent, hindering the performance and user experience of these networks. Traditional solutions have limitations, and there is a need for innovative approaches to address congestion effectively while maintaining the core principles of decentralization and security.

Problem Description: The objective of this project is to develop and implement AI-driven solutions to decongest blockchain networks, improving scalability, efficiency, and user experience. The project aims to leverage AI algorithms and techniques to optimize various aspects of blockchain operation, including transaction processing, fee management, network routing, consensus mechanisms, security, and off-chain scaling solutions.

Key Features:

  • AI-driven dynamic resource allocation fortifying the sidechaining performance: Our system's AI-driven dynamic resource allocation can significantly enhance the performance of sidechains in a blockchain network by optimizing resource utilization and improving scalability, using Predictive Analytics and Leveraging historical data, Our AI model can forecast future demand on sidechains. With this foresight, our system can proactively allocate resources such as computational power, storage, and bandwidth to sidechains before congestion occurs, ensuring smooth operation during peak usage periods. We have also created a Smart Routing framework which Optimizes network routing protocols to distribute transaction flow efficiently and prevent congestion bottlenecks.
