Blockchain Technology Built the Way It Was Meant to Be
Hi, we’re Chia. We’ve meticulously architected a better blockchain, solving issues with existing blockchains today to enable widespread use.
We believe in three non-negotiables for real-world blockchain use:
Let’s Talk Security
Security is synonymous with decentralization. The higher and more diverse the node count, the more decentralized, and in turn the more secure a blockchain is.
100k Nodes Across 200 Countries & Counting
At over 100,000 nodes across over 200 countries, we are one of the most decentralized public blockchains on the planet.
If you have extra space on your hard drive, you can start farming, our version of mining. No need invest in expensive hardware and equipment, ASIC miners, or GPU cycles. This drastically reduces energy consumption to earn Chia (XCH) and contribute to the Chia blockchain.
Secure like PoW,
Green like PoS
It’s called Proof of Space Time (PoST) and we built it to get the best of both worlds, the first new Nakamoto Consensus since Bitcoin’s in 2009.
Proof of Time increases the overall security of the blockchain by increasing the attack resistance of our consensus to 51% in most cases. Proof of Space significantly reduces the carbon footprint of any application on our blockchain. Together, they are revolutionary.
Transforming Blockchain Means Transforming Language
Chialisp is our native programming language, built with security and auditability top of mind.
It’s designed to be as simple and efficient as possible, but still provide broad functionality.
Compliance Means More Protection for Consumers
In order to deliver on the promise of the next-generation blockchains, we believe that we must be regulatory compliant globally.
SEC and CFTC Regulations
We let our securities be securities and our commodities be commodities, with the view that both the SEC and the CFTC have a place in regulating our activities.
We intend to become a public reporting company.
Funded by Reputable Investors
Andreessen Horowitz (a16z), Richmond Global Ventures, Slow Ventures, True Ventures, Greylock, DCM, and more. We raised this funding by selling preferred stock, the tried-and-true method of Silicon Valley VC-backed startups on their way to becoming public.
Our Native Currency (XCH) Is Compliant
We and the SEC agree that most ICOs are illegal unregistered securities offerings. Unlike much of the industry, we don’t believe the Howey test is difficult to apply, are confident that XCH (our native Chia currency) doesn’t constitute a security under Howey, and have proactively engaged with the SEC.
Become More Sustainably Responsible
Less Than 1% the Energy Output vs. PoW
Our proprietary consensus mechanism Proof of Space Time (PoST) drastically reduces energy requirements of Proof of Work based blockchains like Bitcoin.
We’re Transforming Carbon Markets
What if we could increase access and create real global inclusion in the carbon markets?
