2 min readFeb 4, 2024

The concept of modular blockchains gained significant attention last year when Celestia unveiled its ambitious plans. Since then, the modular thesis has gained momentum, witnessing the launch of numerous data availability layers. It’s essential to recognize that the concept of modular blockchains is not an entirely novel idea exclusive to Celestia. This article will explore and explain how NULS blockchain is positioned on the modular blockchain map. More importantly, introduces a powerful tool, that stands behind the NULS modular — NULS ChainBox.

In general, NULS ChainBox solution provides developers with an extensive suite of tools to build highly customized blockchains choosing modules from a common repository, modifying them, or even adding new ones.

What is NULS ChainBox?

ChainBox is an out-of-the-box solution for blockchain development. It encapsulates six underlying modules: ledger, accounts, transactions, blocks, consensus, and network. ChainBox eliminates the necessity for direct blockchain experience and the need to understand distributed data storage, point-to-point transmission, consensus mechanisms, and encryption algorithms. Developers can focus on creating independent business modules based on standard communication protocols, forming a brand-new application chain in minutes with ChainBox.

NULS ChainBox Key Features

NULS ChainBox is meticulously crafted to empower enterprises and application developers in seamlessly constructing blockchain applications. Its primary objective is to liberate users from the intricacies of blockchain technology, enabling them to channel their focus on actualizing their business innovations. Its key features include:

  • Quick setup of the development environment

NULS ChainBox streamlines the development environment's setup process, ensuring a quick and hassle-free initiation for users. This feature allows developers to dive into their projects without the cumbersome task of grappling with complex technical configurations.

  • Lowering the threshold of application development by using templates

Designed as an extension of NULS 2.0, ChainBox significantly lowers the barriers to application development through templates. By leveraging predefined templates, developers can expedite their workflow, harnessing a simplified approach that accelerates the creation of blockchain applications.

  • Reducing the difficulty of integration

NULS ChainBox goes beyond template usage by providing scripts and facilitating one-click generation of executable programs. This strategic approach drastically diminishes the challenges associated with integrating applications with NULS. Users can seamlessly integrate their projects with the blockchain, thanks to the user-friendly templates and accompanying scripts.

By leveraging various modules provided by NULS, NULS ChainBox enables developers to flexibly create and assemble their blockchain tailored to diverse business enterprises. Currently, we have witnessed several developers utilizing NULS ChainBox to assemble their blockchains, such as NerveNetwork, ENULS, ICW CHAIN, etc.
