Mainnet Release

We believe that cryptocurrency should be easier to use than cash, harder to lose, and nearly impossible to steal. Anyone who wants to validate transactions should be able to farm without single-use hardware or a big electricity bill.

On February 9th we released our Business Whitepaper and mainnet launched for farming rewards on Friday March 19, 2021. Transactions were enabled on May 3, 2021. You may also be interested in our new consensus working document which was implemented first in Beta 19 on January 12, 2021.

Chia Network develops a blockchain and smart transaction platform created by the inventor of BitTorrent, Bram Cohen. It implements the first new Nakamoto consensus algorithm since Bitcoin in 2008. Proofs of Space and Time replace energy intensive “proofs of work.”

Chialisp is Chia’s new on chain programming language that is powerful, easy to audit, and secure. It will make cryptocurrency easier to use than cash. Reference smart transactions currently available are: Coloured coins, rate-limited wallets, and distributed identity wallets. Bram introduces Chialisp on our blog and you can learn more at

You should review the release notes and then install Chia blockchain.
