Sharded, scalable, fast smart contracts

Our blockchain platform is fast and scalable, and we're getting it ready for you to use. Sign up and we'll notify you when you can start experimenting yourself.

Key Features

A simple developer experience for scalable smart contracts.

Sharded

Our sharding protocol for smart contracts, S-BAC, allows parallelization of contract execution, leading to major boosts in scalability.

Standard tools

Use your favourite language(s) and libraries for smart contract development.

Peer Reviewed

Chainspace was rigorously peer reviewed by some the world's leading computer security experts and presented at NDSS 2018.

Tuneable

Trade block latency for throughput. You can get sub-second chaining in milliseconds or high throughput with longer latency.

Meet the team

We combine peer-reviewed cryptography with the most modern development techniques to let you concentrate on your application instead of low-level details.
