Open Consensus
for 10 Billion People.
Harmony for One and All.

Our open infrastructure is a revolutionary high-throughput, low-latency, and low-fee consensus platform designed to power decentralized economies of the future.

Decentralization at Scale

Decentralization at Scale

Our goal is to deliver scalability and decentralization. The promise of blockchain is to enable decentralized coordination at scale but no platform has yet been able to achieve both. Harmony aims to change that.

Similar to the way Google vertically integrates its search infrastructure, we take a full stack approach to solve consensus at scale. We apply 10x innovations at every layer in consensus algorithms, systems and networking to maximize the performance of our network while maintaining decentralization. Our end-to-end integration allows us to iterate faster and make more aggressive optimizations than could be done with a modular approach.

Latest Updates

We published our Whitepaper that elaborates our technology, research and key guiding principles.

We’ve built our founding engineering team that has deep experience in building large-scale infrastructure.

We’ve raised a private seed round to develop the core protocol and start engaging our early community.
