Run at the Scale of Nations. Now.

A fast, scalable, easy-to-use ledger, ready-made for 7 billion people.

What is Radix?

Radix is a new layer for the internet, where data, money, and assets are part of the very fabric of the technology. It is scalable, easy to use, and can be built and deployed via API – no smart contracts required.


Build the next breakthrough decentralized application, create your own asset backed tokens, fractionalize property, build a global IoT data layer or create a new lending platform. Whatever you want to do, with our Atom Model it’s easy to get started; we are completely API driven and there are no complex Smart Contracts to deal with.


Make faster payments with low predictable fees; our system is built to support millions of concurrent users, with no bottlenecks or high gas fees. We’re already reaching transaction speeds that rival Visa and Alipay and dwarf the speeds of other current blockchain platforms, and that is just our Alpha testnet


Our ledger is so much more than a secure decentralized database. Have complete control of your valuable data in an immutable system, where information is cryptographically hashed and easy to recover, only give access to those who need it, yet operate with global high availability from the start.

Why Radix

Radix is a public decentralised ledger, like Ethereum or Bitcoin, but built without blockchain.

Radix solves the three key problems facing the current technology, we are:

  •  Highly Scalable
  •  Easy To Build On
  •  Have Predictable Fees

Radix can run on almost any device, is API driven and has its own token. It is scalable enough for the entire world to use it simultaneously.

Test it today

The Radix Alphanet is now live!

Download our wallets and grab some tokens to put Radix to the test, get started with our JavaScript, Java and Kotlin developer tools; or jump straight into the technical details in our knowledge base.

How it works

Radix has a total of 18.4 quintillion shards. Instead of transactions being in blocks (like in blockchain), we use the shards to group together related transactions and ungroup unrelated transactions. By removing blockchain entirely, we have a finality time of fewer than 10 seconds, even with millions of nodes and billions of transactions happening concurrently. This has created a linearly scalable, decentralized network that has already been tested to over 500,000 transactions per second.
