Noble (USDC)

What is the Noble Blockchain?​

Here are 5 key points about Noble (USDC):

  • Native Asset Issuance: Noble is designed specifically for the issuance of native digital assets within the Cosmos ecosystem, starting with USDC. This specialization allows for seamless integration and efficient management of these assets across various blockchains within the ecosystem.

  • Interoperability with IBC: Noble leverages the Inter-Blockchain Communication (IBC) protocol to facilitate reliable and secure communication between different blockchains. This interoperability enables smooth transfers and interactions between Noble and other IBC-enabled chains, enhancing the utility and reach of issued assets like USDC.

  • Proof of Authority (PoA) Security: Initially, Noble operates on a Proof of Authority (PoA) model, which includes a trusted validator set to secure the network. Validators are vetted and permissioned, ensuring a high level of security and reliability. Plans for future integration with Cosmos’s Replicated Security model are in place to further enhance network security.

  • Economic Model Based on Transaction Fees: Noble does not have a native inflationary gas token. Instead, transaction fees are denominated in stablecoins like USDC and ATOM. These fees are distributed among validators, providing an incentive structure that aligns with the economic activity on the network.

  • Robust Governance and Maintenance: The Noble Maintenance Multisig (NMM) manages upgrades, parameter changes, and IBC connection maintenance. This multisig setup ensures that governance is decentralized and resilient, with stakeholders from various geographical regions contributing to the decision-making process.
