Power in Parallel

An open source, public, decentralised ledger.
Built to provide unlimited scale.

A safe place for the world’s wealth.

The World Economic Forum predicts that by 2027, 10% of Global GDP will be stored on public blockchain.

But today, public blockchain is unable to support even 1% of the world’s daily transaction volume.

We thought it was time to start building an open-source, decentralised public ledger capable of making that prediction a reality.

An open network for everyone.

We know that for a public ledger to truly be global and successful it can’t be a black box built behind closed doors.

This is why we are committed to ensuring full public control of the network and have already open-sourced our code, sharing updates as they are developed along the way.

It’s not just about the code; we want anyone to get involved, whether it’s feeding back on governance or creating GIFs.

We can’t succeed without you.

Get involved.
