The Platform for
Distributed Applications

Swirlds is a software platform designed to build fully-distributed applications that harness the power of the cloud without servers. Now you can develop applications with fairness in decision making, speed, trust and reliability, at a fraction of the cost of traditional server-based platforms.

A tech report is available, which is a white paper describing the hashgraph, the consensus algorithm, and the mathematical proofs of Byzantine fault tolerance. A second tech report goes through examples illustrating each step of the consensus algorithm.
