Run at the Scale of Nations. Now.
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.
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.
Develop on Radix
Asset-backed tokens are the bridge that makes crypto comprehensible to anyone. However, whether it be dollars or diamonds, linking the asset to the token can be complicated.
The Radix multi-issuance token API removes the headache of making smart contracts and traditional systems talk to each other. Now you can mint-on-demand. Quick, low cost, easy to integrate.
Create Fiat tokens with superpowers and unlock the $80 Trillion market opportunity.
We wanted to make holding and owning any token as easy as possible. On Radix, all tokens are compatible with all Radix wallets, no extra work required. We’ve even made our wallets Open Source so you can integrate and brand them any way you like.
Whether you have an idea for the next $Bn ICO, or just want to create Cheese Coin because you can; making single issuance coins on Radix is simple, fast and secure. No smart contracts, no requirement to make Radix wallets compatible. Issue, transfer, and use within minutes.
The Radix ledger is built to integrate with current smart-cards and point-of-sale (POS) terminals. The Radix developer toolkit comes with standard off the shelf hardware including blank cards, smart card reader/writer and the API library to create:
- Cold Wallets: To store your Radix tokens securely with ease.
- Debit Cards: To spend Radix tokens anytime and anywhere without changing your transaction process.
- Trusted Identities: For loyalty programs and access management systems.
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.

We’re not live yet, but you can practice running a node when the public testnet is live.
The Rad (XRD) is the native currency of the Radix platform. It will not be available for sale until the network is live, there are, however, several ways to get your hands on them. Download the wallet.
