Side Chain

What does Side Chain mean in crypto terms?

A Side Chain is a separate blockchain that operates alongside a parent blockchain, enabling enhanced functionality or value. Side Chains are designed to enable features such as faster transactions, lower fees, or different consensus mechanisms without affecting the main blockchain. Assets can typically be transferred between the main blockchain and the side chain, providing a method for interoperability and scalability. Side Chains are used to experiment with new features and applications, while maintaining the integrity and security of the main blockchain.
