The Universa blockchain platform is a distributed system for executing smart contracts. It provides faster and less expensive transactions compared to Ethereum and Bitcoin.
Without the limitations related to mining that are inherent in Ethereum or Bitcoin, Universa is capaable of handling up to 20,000 transactions per second.

As mentioned by the project team, McAfee is going to use the Universa platform to implement his own blocking project McAfee Coin, with which he hopes to "change the venture capital market".
According to the man, the nature of the blockchain allows creating a chain of trusted transactions, while decentralization of the verification processes can perfectly complement or even replace industry-recognized principles of the information protection.
