A better blockchain and smart transaction platform which is more decentralized, more efficient, and more secure.
Chia Network develops a blockchain and smart transaction platform created by the founder of BitTorrent, Bram Cohen. It is powered by the first new Nakamoto style consensus algorithm since Bitcoin launched in 2008. Proofs of Space and Time replace energy intensive “proofs of work” by utilizing unused disk space.
Chialisp is Chia’s new smart transaction programming language that is powerful, easy to audit, and secure. The reference smart transactions currently available are: atomic swaps, authorized payees, recoverable wallets, multisig wallets, and rate-limited wallets. Bram has more on Chialisp.

Since this is an alpha release, you may want to review the release notes.
