DOS Chain utilizes the subnet technology of Avalanche. Before you start developing DApps on the DOS Chain, it is important to learn about its underlying architecture.
A Subnet, or Subnetwork, is a dynamic set of validators working together to achieve consensus on the state of a set of blockchains. Each blockchain is validated by exactly one Subnet. A Subnet can validate arbitrarily many blockchains. A node may be a member of arbitrarily many Subnets. For more information about Subnets please refer to this article and overview.
DOS is the native token that powers the DOS Chain ecosystem. You can also use DOS in a wide range of applications and use cases.
