Radix: The Full Stack for DeFi
Radix is built to create a Web3 future for everyone, not just the innovators here today. A future where our friends, family and colleagues can confidently participate.
After 10 years of research, testing and focused development, Radix has built a highly optimized stack of custom technologies that tightly integrates wallet, programming language, execution environment, and consensus algorithm. Radically different to everything else, welcome to the “Radix Full Stack”.
The Radix Wallet
The process of approving a DeFi transaction in Web3 today consistently creates one of the world’s most terrifying consumer experiences.
When you click “approve” or “sign”, do you really know what you’re authorizing, or is it just a leap of faith? Stories of people blind signing a transaction only to realize their assets have disappeared are all too common. Powered by the Radix Transaction Manifest, the Radix Wallet* shows a friendly, understandable preview of what’s actually going to happen when you click “approve”.
Every transaction on Radix gets this treatment automatically. No special support is needed from dApps or dApp developers; it just works.
Easy & Secure Account Control. No Custodians, No Seed Phrases
For most users, having a single seed phrase that unlocks everything they own is not only confusing, it’s dangerous. Lost and stolen seed phrases have already cost the industry billions of dollars.
With Smart Accounts, the Radix Wallet provides a non-custodial crypto experience that’s safe and fully decentralized. It’s as easy to use as any app on your phone, without needing to rely on a centralized service or custodian.
With Radix Smart Accounts, seed phrases become a thing of the past!
And There is so Much More…
The Radix Wallet brings a mobile-first approach to Web3 & DeFi, ensuring effortless and secure smart contract interactions across devices.
When combined with Radix Connect, you can seamlessly use dApps on desktop for the big screen experience, while still securely managing your crypto assets.
What you own shouldn't define who you are, and thanks to Radix Personas, you can take control of your Web3 identity while maintaining full control over your information.

Combined with Radix Engine, Scrypto puts assets, accounts and permissions at the heart of the programming language. Together they make asset security feel easy and obvious.

Hear what some developers have to say
The World's First “DeFi Engine”
Game engines like Unity and Unreal took care of the standardizable, low-level stuff that every game needs, freeing up developer time to work on the parts that make games great: narrative, gameplay, world-building.
Before game engines, developers spent 80% of their time on the low-level boring stuff like rendering engines and physics engines. After game engines, developers could spend the majority of their time on building great games.
Before Game Engines
Over 80% of developer time was spent defining the laws of physics and low level optimizations
After Game Engines
Game engines allowed developers to spend more of their time on gameplay, story, levels, and graphics
The Radix Engine unlocks similar powers for Web3 and DeFi developers, giving back their time to work on the features their users want. Both developers and their users can be confident that dApps that run on Radix are powerful, intuitive and secure.
Before DeFi Engines
In DeFi today, the majority of developer time is spent on validations, error handling, testing, and audit
After DeFi Engines
With Radix Engine, developers can spend their time on DeFi Functionality their users want
Secure DeFi by Default
The Radix Engine is like an asset co-processor for Web3; instead of developers needing to worry about the safe handling of assets in complex dApps, the Radix Engine does the heavy lifting.
Hacks such as re-entrancy attacks, token approval attacks or signature manipulation attacks have cost users over $500m to date. Radix Engine makes many of these attacks impossible.
With Radix Engine, both developers and their users know that dApps that run on Radix are powerful, intuitive, and secure.
How Scrypto and the Radix Engine Massively Improve Developer Experience
Radix Engine is currently on Betanet, and launches on the Radix Mainnet with the Babylon upgrade in Sept 2023.
The Final Layer of the Radix Stack
For Web3 to reach mass adoption, users need to be able to confidently use a network without skyrocketing fees, finality time, or a myriad of confusing layer 2’s to contend with.
Cerberus is the unique consensus algorithm powering the Radix Network.
The first version of Cerberus went live with the Radix mainnet in July 2021
