Sidechain (ledger)

From EverybodyWiki Bios & Wiki

A sidechain is a designation for a blockchain ledger that runs in parallel to a primary blockchain.[1][2] Entries from the primary blockchain (where said entries typically represent digital assets) can be linked to and from the sidechain; this allows the sidechain to otherwise operate independently of the primary blockchain (e.g., by using an alternate means of record keeping, alternate consensus algorithm, etc.).[3]
