Bringing blockchain mainstream

We're focused on addressing key shortcomings of current public blockchain infrastructures. Presently, transaction scalability comes largely at the cost of decentralization, and the commercial adoption of blockchain technology has been impeded by insufficient infrastructure. By providing fundamental building blocks for developers to create groundbreaking applications, and an intuitive interface for users to access these functionalities, we aim to provide a comprehensive foundation for the future of blockchain technology.

Scalable

Leveraging a hybrid PBFT/PoW consensus mechanism and federated architecture, Cypherium is able to achieve unprecedented transaction throughput while preserving permissionless decentralization and integrity.

Capable

Cypherium VM offers light-weight sandbox environment that separates testing and production. The infrastructure comes with easy-to-use smart contract scripting, identity management, secure messaging, and additional functionalities.

Adaptable

No fixed block size. No minimum fees for smart contract execution. No waiting on transaction confirmation. Cypherium supports consensus self-upgrade that adjusts parameters according to the network capacity.

Cypherium is a highly scalable blockchain infrastructure based on hybrid proof-of-work and Byzantine fault tolerance consensus.

cypherium

The design goal of Cypherium focuses on achieving the apex of scalability, decentralization, and commercialization viability. Cypherium’s unique consensus mechanism provides unprecedented transaction throughput and contract execution time through PBFT, while leveraging an ASIC-resistant Proof-of-Work system for decentralized leader election. 

Meet our team

Cypherium is comprised of experienced technologists, visionaries, and experts possessing extensive background in cryptography, decentralized networking and software architecture. Our development team is growing everyday and we plan on bringing in more-full time members soon.

Why scalability matters?

So, we already have Bitcoin and Ethereum, why do we need another public blockchain? To ask this question is equivalent to ask “We already have horses. Why do we need cars?”. None of the existing infrastructures scale Read more…

Why is Bitcoin so slow?

Back in 2009, the year Bitcoin was invented, seven transactions per second speed might sound all right, since Bitcoin was only circulated within a small group of cryptographic geeks and nobody thought to use it Read more…
