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.



The Swirlds platform enables developers to create both permissioned and permissionless distributed applications with high transaction throughput, low consensus latency, and fairness in transaction order, without the burdensome costs of Proof-of-Work. Some of the application categories include:

  • Markets
  • Identity
  • Gaming
  • Cryptocurrency
  • Online Collaboration
  • Public Ledger
