Sharded Address Space

Quai Network utilizes a sharded address space, meaning that only certain address are able to successfully send funds within each blockchain. This is done so that transaction validation is easily enforceable cross-chain. The set of address prefixes currently occupies a byte prefix for each blockchain in the network; in the future as the network grows the amount of addresses included in this list will increase.
Example Addresses:
  • Prime: 0x0087245518127A1e11fCDBD54b285BCb4173df8C
  • Cyprus: 0x115046125D6Ba88C1FBcbE7203Ef663e37F08870
  • Cyprus One: 0x1558F443A1bE597021fDa16C38c4AA126Fc569c3
