Sidechains are secondary blockchain networks that operate in parallel to the main blockchain. They are designed to address scalability and efficiency challenges by enabling specific use cases to be processed off the main chain. Sidechains facilitate faster transactions and specialized functionalities while maintaining a connection to the main chain for security and interoperability. This approach allows Web3 applications to benefit from enhanced performance without compromising the integrity of the primary blockchain network.
