What Is Sui (SUI)?


Sui is a first-of-its-kind Layer 1 blockchain and smart contract platform designed from the bottom up to make digital asset ownership fast, private, secure, and accessible to everyone. Its object-centric model, based on the Move programming language, enables parallel execution, sub-second finality, and rich on-chain assets. With horizontally scalable processing and storage, Sui supports a wide range of applications with unrivaled speed at low cost. Sui is a step-function advancement in blockchain and a platform on which creators and developers can build amazing, user-friendly experiences.

What Makes Sui Unique?



Through features such as horizontal scaling, composability, sparse replay, and on-chain storage, Sui’s architecture solves pain points common to first generation blockchains.

Horizontal Scaling

On the Sui network, each group of transactions process in parallel, as opposed to the bottlenecking that occurs in some earlier blockchains due to any lack of distinction between the various objects, resources, accounts, and other components.


In Sui, unlike most other blockchains, one can directly pass an asset (such as an NFT), directly into a function argument. Sui’s object-centric approach also allows for more esoteric data structures, and the ability to store assets inside such data structures, or in an asset itself.

Sparse Replay

Naturally, a blockchain provides a ledger of every single transaction. For a Sui-specific example, game builders don’t need to track transactions interacting with unrelated dApps. Because querying on-chain data can be expensive, products on Sui will be able to follow the evolution of the objects in this game, without digging out the data from the Merkle tree.

On-Chain Storage

Because assets are directly stored as objects on the Sui blockchain, they are never subject to Merkle tree indexing. Storing assets directly on-chain is used in tandem with conventional means, such as IPFS, to scale the problem of on-chain storage, as it is much cheaper to directly update assets on-chain.
