Fully decentralized, open source public chain with high speed and low transaction fees ideal for Payments, DeFi and NFTs

It’s official: the Mainnet launch date is set for 25 March 2021.

Following our announcement of the 70 billion CRO burn, we continue to aggressively pursue full decentralization of the network. We believe that the world needs a fully decentralized, open-source, public chain with high speed and low fees.

In line with the spirit of decentralization, the Mainnet will be launched as the Crypto.org Chain with Crypto.org Coin (CRO) as its native currency.

Crypto.org Chain is a public, open-source and permissionless blockchain - a decentralized network designed to be a public good that helps drive mass adoption of blockchain technology. Following more than 2 years of research and development, 2 testnets (Thaler and Croeseid) and a successful Mainnet Dry-Run Competition (Crossfire), the Crypto.org Chain is now ready for launch. Over 3,000 validator applications from all around the world were received during the Crossfire Mainnet Dry-Run where more than 275 million transactions were processed in four weeks. We expect hundreds of validators participating at Mainnet launch. Millions of individual users may also contribute to network security via Delegated Proof of Stake model by simply using our DeFi Wallet.

We’re looking forward to joining all ecosystem partner projects and all contributors in building the world’s best infrastructure for Payments, DeFi and NFTs.
