Verifiable timestamps and ordering of events
The 3rd generation public ledger
Bitcoin pioneered decentralized infrastructure and Ethereum brought programmability. But earlier proof-of-work blockchains consume massive amounts of energy and process transactions slowly in order to achieve acceptable levels of security. Heavy bandwidth consumption by these technologies leads to expensive fees, even for a simple cryptocurrency transaction.
The Hedera proof-of-stake public network, powered by hashgraph consensus, achieves the highest-grade of security possible (ABFT), with blazing-fast transaction speeds and incredibly low bandwidth consumption. By combining high-throughput, low fees, and finality in seconds, Hedera leads the way for the future of public ledgers.Discover HBAR

Build directly on hashgraph
Create scalable and publicly verifiable timestamps and ordering of events for any application. Track assets on a supply chain, count music streams for digital rights, or log digital asset transfers.
ENABLE FAST, LOW FEE PAYMENTS
Cryptocurrency payments allow you to transact using hbars without intermediaries to lower costs and make complex payments simple with code.
Sign and verify files
Create and manage files, with guaranteed visibility. File Service can act as a credentials revocation service and uniquely prove GDPR compliance.
Tokenize and exchange assets
The tokenized economy will change how we define ownership. Use the Solidity language to create assets, perform atomic swaps, or interact with outside oracles.
