Who is Koinos Group?
Koinos Group is an engineering-first company led by battle-hardened blockchain veterans with unrivaled experience as core developers and architects of the Bitshares and Steem blockchains, two of the most used blockchains ever. It was through our firsthand experience working with some of the most performant blockchains, and their shortcomings, that we learned about the most serious problems facing the mass adoption of this technology. This knowledge has enabled us to improve on these older technologies and build something better and faster.
Smart contracts have unlimited business potential, but existing blockchain platforms are either too expensive, too slow, or too technically challenging to allow enterprises to explore all the possibilities. In fact, delivering even an acceptable user experience on existing platforms is practically impossible. With free transactions, free accounts, and free smart contract execution, Koinos is a blockchain platform that enables enterprises of all sizes to rapidly build, maintain, and upgrade amazing blockchain-based applications with no barriers to entry.
What is Our Mission?
Our mission is to give everyone ownership of their digital selves and we believe that blockchain is the most promising technology for accomplishing this mission. Blockchain-based applications can add value to people’s lives in countless ways but building such applications is far too difficult, time consuming, and expensive.
What is Our Vision?
In order to accomplish our mission we need to dramatically expand the quantity of blockchain powered applications in existence, and the number of people capable of using those applications, which is why we are building a brand new blockchain from the ground up to make it fast, easy, and affordable to build blockchain-based applications capable of delighting users.
