This paper presents Thinkey, an efficient, secure, infinitely scalable and decentralized blockchain architecture. It ensures system correctness and liveness by a multi-layer structure. In particular, the system is based on a double-chain architecture and uses a multi-layer consensus protocol to guarantee consistency. Thinkey also uses a novel account model which is based on Actor Model to support the complex logic in the multi-chain structure. Experiment results show that the proposed Thinkey architecture can achieve higher throughput as the number of nodes increases.
