Casper is the world’s first scalable, decentralized, and secure Proof of Stake (PoS) blockchain. Casper can accommodate private, public, and hybrid network solutions, ensuring an optimized set of solutions for businesses, institutions, and individual application teams. Casper is powered by the Highway Protocol, a “correct-by-construction” specification (i.e. "CBC Casper" developed for Ethereum's future consensus protocol, when it migrates to pure PoS) that ensures security, functionality, and liveness. The token native to the Casper network is CSPR and is used to secure the network through PoS. Casper is currently in its final incentivized testnet phase, and will launch mainnet in Q1 2021
