# What is NULS
# NULS is a blockchain infrastructure for customizable services, driven by our global open-source community.
Following the principles of pluggability, modularization and parallel expansion, NULS provides smart contracts, multi-chain mechanism and cross-chain consensus to reduce cost of development and usage, and to promote the application of blockchain in the commercial field and the interaction among chains
Upholding the "chain" as the core in the NULS development philosophy, NULS is striving for building its core product: "Chain Factory". In the meantime, NULS will realize the value circulation among chains through cross-chain module and build the ecosystem of blockchains.
