I’m attempting to grasp sidechains and the way they relate to ethereum however all of the articles I learn preserve saying issues like:
A sidechain is a separate blockchain that runs unbiased of Ethereum and is linked to Ethereum Mainnet by a two-way bridge
That’s from right here
However I do not get it. Solana has bridges to Ethereum, does that make Solana a aspect chain of Ethereum? Polkadot has bridges to Ethereum, is that additionally a aspect chain?
I imply what makes an ethereum “sidechain” distinct from different “chains” that may even have bridges to Ethereum?
Additionally within the article above, it’s acknowledged that:
Sidechains can have separate block parameters and consensus algorithms, which are sometimes designed for environment friendly processing of transactions
Okay so sidechains have some edge over mainchain, primarily processing pace. If that’s the case, why then does it have to be linked to the mainchain and acts as a sidechain to the principle chain?
I ask as a result of it is usually acknowledged that the sidechain doesn’t derives it is safety from the mainchain. So if it doesn’t derive its safety from the ethereum mainchain, why does it then even must have a “sidechain relationship” with the ethereum mainchain.
Can somebody please assist clarify? Thanks
