If you had to pay fees to visit websites, would the internet have gone viral?
Koinos is a blockchain with no gas fees so it can go viral... Just like the internet.
Hackathon Winner: Kanvas!
Congratulations to Kanvas, the winner of the Koinos Hackathon and $5,000 in KOIN!
Kanvas is the first collaborative and decentralized canvas on the first free-to-use blockchain. Draw on the blockchain today
3 second blocks for real-time apps
Work in the languages you already know and love like TypeScript and C++
Fork-less upgrades mean no more "Eth 2.0-style" delays
Holding the KOIN token conveys the right to a certain amount of the network's resources forever.
Mining on Koinos is virtualized by having block producers burn their KOIN for "virtual hash power" (VHP).
Block producers place votes on fork-less system upgrades through decentralized governance
A fast, efficient, and truly decentralized consensus algorithm that "virtualizes" hash power, unlocking access to create the egalitarian vision originally espoused in the Bitcoin white paper.
Koinos is designed so developers can build in the programming languages you already know and love with existing support for TypeScript and C++. We call it "Universal Language Support."
Koinos main net is the flagship chain of the Koinos Blockchain Framework; a new WASM-based layer zero (L0); a blockchain building framework that allows any part of the system to be individually upgraded in-band, making “Eth 2.0”-style hard forks a thing of the past.
Mana, not gas
KOIN contains “Mana” a regenerating and shareable resource that limits blockchain usage.
The more KOIN you have, the more CPU, Disk, and Bandwidth you and your users can consume for free, forever.
A Community Effort
Mainnet is LIVE!
The World’s first free-to-use, truly decentralized, and evolving blockchain is ready for your DApp
