What is Camino?
Camino is an open-source platform for launching decentralized applications and enterprise blockchain deployments in one interoperable, highly scalable ecosystem. Camino is built for the scale of the global touristic market, with near-instant transaction finality. Ethereum developers can quickly build on Camino as Solidity works out-of-the-box.
CAM is the native token of Camino. It’s a hard-capped, scarce asset that is used to pay for fees, secure the platform through staking, and provide a basic unit of account between the multiple subnets created on Camino.

Camino Consensus Protocol
Protocols in the Camino family operate through repeated sub-sampled voting.
In the common case when a transaction has no conflicts, finalization happens very quickly. When conflicts exist, honest validators quickly cluster around conflicting transactions, entering a positive feedback loop until all correct validators prefer that transaction. This leads to the acceptance of non-conflicting transactions and the rejection of conflicting transactions.

Uses a consensus protocol, developed by a team of Cornell computer scientists, and is able to permanently confirm transactions in under 1 second.
Capable of 4,500 transactions per second–an order of magnitude greater than existing blockchains.
Ensures stronger security guarantees well-above the 51% standard of other networks.
Easily create custom blockchains and decentralized apps that contain almost any arbitrary logic.
Uses energy-efficient proof-of-stake consensus algorithm rather than proof-of-work.
