Why Radix

A place where DeFi can thrive

10x Developer Productivity

DeFi sucks for developers.

Developers waste up to 90% of their time battling code. Imagine how much better DeFi would be if we took the brakes off innovation. Radix fixes this.

We’re making developing DeFi fun again

100x More DeFi Security

DeFi sucks for investors.

Nearly 1 billion dollars of DeFi hacks in the past two years. This puts everyone at risk. Radix fixes this.

We're making DeFi safer for everyone

1000x More Scalability

DeFi sucks for users.

A $200 fee for a $20 transaction is infuriating. It crushes user adoption. Radix fixes this...forever.

We’re making DeFi usable again

Radix is the only decentralized network where developers will be able to build quickly without the constant threat of exploits and hacks, where every improvement will get rewarded, and where scale will never be a bottleneck.

Radix Staking

Radix Staking Estimator
Your Radix (XRD) stake


Yearly Reward *

~ 0 - 0%

* Estimate based on: total tokens staked on mainnet; range of validator fees charged; assumed 100% validator uptime. Actual rewards may vary.

Staking provides a critical function for the Radix network. The greater the value staked, the more secure the network is.

To help ensure network security, 300m RADIX (XRD) are generated by the protocol every year and shared amongst those that stake.

Based on current market prices, 300M XRD is worth around $0.

The first version of the Radix Mainnet, Olympia, is secured using delegated proof of stake - this makes staking super easy. Transfer your XRD to your Radix wallet, choose the validator nodes you want to stake to and start earning staking rewards today.

Radix Roadmap

Excellence, Step by Step

The path to unlimited scalability, developer royalties, and a great builder experience.


A temporary test network supporting an intense period of public testing ahead of launch of the first version of the Radix mainnet: Olympia. Enable community participation in testing of wallets and nodes under real-world conditions.

Successfully Completed


Decentralized network foundations with simplified unsharded Cerberus consensus, low fees, 50tps, 5sec finality time, and dPOS. Hold, transact, and stake tokens for network security and rewards using basic Olympia Radix wallet.


A new DeFi development experience with the Scrypto language and Radix Engine v2, running in a private environment for early builds and testing. Give developers a head start on experimentation with building DeFi concepts and reusable features for Radix.

Coming in Q4 2021


An open, self-incentivizing DeFi ecosystem with Scrypto dApp network deployment, decentralized Royalty System, and open Blueprint Catalogue. Open up fully featured, secure DeFi dApp ecosystem capability on Radix.

Coming in 2022


Unlimited scalability and composability to carry DeFi into the global mainstream future with sharded, linearly scalable Cerberus consensus.

Coming in 2023

XRD Tokenomics

A Token to Power the Radix Ecosystem

XRD is the native token of the Radix Mainnet and may be used for securing the network, accessing DeFi, deploying smart contracts and paying for transactions.

Token Burn

100% of all transaction fees
are burned.

Lockup via PoS

53.8% of token supply is locked on average across POS networks.

Staking Rewards

300 million XRD per year will go to stakers for securing the network.

Easy Ramps

Our eXRD/XRD bridge will allow users to move quickly between Ethereum and Radix.

Lockup via DeFi

XRD is likely to be one of the key sources of user collateral for DeFi on Radix.

Fixed Token Supply

XRD has a maximum supply of 24Bn tokens that will not be reached for at least 40 years.

The Radix ERC20 Token

A Token to Kickstart a DeFi Economy

eXRD was launched to ensure the mainnet is sufficiently decentralized, to build effective bridges between Ethereum and Radix, and to integrate key pieces of infrastructure, including:

What’s happening at Radix


What is Radix?

Radix is the first layer-one protocol specifically built to serve DeFi. This protocol is the basis of the Radix public network – a fully decentralized platform for DeFi applications and users. Decentralized finance applications are currently built on protocols that are not fit for this purpose, leading to congestion, hacks and developer frustration. Radix changes this by introducing a scalable, secure-by-design, composable platform with a DeFi centric development environment to make it easy to build and launch scalable DeFi products.

What is a DLT?

DLT means decentralized ledger technology. Blockchains and DAGs are types of DLTs. Radix has a novel data structure and consensus design and so it is different from blockchains and DAGs, hence why Radix is often referred to generally as a “DLT”.

What is Scalability?

Scalability typically refers to the amount of transactions the network can process over a period of time (often measured in TPS - transactions per second) and how fast the network can finalize transactions (seconds, minutes, hours). Radix provides transaction finality in seconds. And when fully rolled out, Radix’s sharded Cerberus consensus will enable a “linearly scalable” network which means that the more nodes you put to work the more transactions the network can process.

What is DeFi

Decentralized Finance are financial tools running on top of a decentralized ledger. For example, decentralized exchanges, lending/borrowing platforms, automated market makers (like Uniswap), and hedge funds. DeFi has the potential to replace global financial systems with a more democratic, competitive system built by a new generation of innovators.

How scalable is Radix?

There are no fundamental theoretical limitations to the total number of independent transactions Cerberus can process concurrently in distinct shards. In that regard, Cerberus scales linearly with the number of nodes.
