It’s finally here – the day that many of you in the community, and certainly all of us at Hedera, have been looking forward to, and working hard towards, over the last few years. Open Access is a big milestone for us. As of that moment, anyone from the general public can create a Hedera account, and any developer can now build and deploy decentralized applications (dapps) on the Hedera Hashgraph platform.
Dallas, TX — September 16th, 2019 — Hedera Hashgraph, an enterprise-grade public distributed ledger platform, today announced Open Access (OA) to its mainnet beta. OA allows anyone from the general public to create an account and any developer to build decentralized applications (dapps) on the Hedera Hashgraph platform.
Distributed ledger technologies (DLT) aren’t just built on code; they’re about community too. And while we might wish for universal agreement, any community worth the name will have its share of disagreement and dispute.
For those of us immersed in hashgraph it is important to acknowledge that for those with a lot of experience with blockchain-based technologies, many of the characteristics of hashgraph consensus don't fit squarely into that frame of reference.
Hedera has come a long way since its initial launch, in New York City on Tuesday, March 13, 2018. At that point in time, we had the hashgraph consensus algorithm, invented by Hedera's CTO Dr. Leemon Baird, and a dream — a whitepaper, articulating in detail, the plans we've laid out for ourselves to build the most decentralized public network at scale. One that's faster, fairer, and more secure than anything the world has seen.
Those of you who have been following Hedera on our journey know that we expect to open the mainnet for public use later this summer. With this, our goal is to make the Hedera cryptocurrency, the HBAR, widely available for people to use for development and usage of applications on the network as it grows
