Internet of Blockchains

Blocknet is a blockchain interoperability protocol that enables communication, interaction, and exchange between different public and private blockchains, as well as on-chain access to off-chain data, APIs, and services via oracles.

We are an open sourced, self-funded, and self-governed project with dedicated contributors around the world.


The Blocknet Protocol is a true peer-to-peer protocol between nodes on different blockchains. This enables the transfer of data and value between blockchains and opens the door to multi-chain architectures.

Many components come together to form a single decentralized protocol.
Use powerful APIs to integrate blockchains into any other blockchain or application.

The Blocknet Protocol is designed to maximize interoperability between different blockchains through the use of these components. Just as the internet enabled computers to communicate, the Blocknet Protocol is critical for blockchains to realize full potential.

The Blocknet community has been developing this technology since 2014. Our decentralized governance system and open source code ensures that every blockchain is free to interact without centralized entities.

Start Building

Introducing Block DX, the first dApp built on the Blocknet Protocol. Block DX is the first true decentralized exchange that enables trading freedom for connected blockchains. Listing on Block DX is free and does not require permission or control. See listing process.

Start Trading

Peer to Peer

With Block DX you'll never have to send your tokens to an unsafe 3rd party wallet for trading. You maintain ownership at all times. Block DX mediates exchanges peer-to-peer, wallet-to-wallet, with no 3rd party.

Trading Freedom

Block DX offers absolute trading pair freedom between any two tokens. Separate parties can trade tokens directly between each other in a trustless manner.

Exchange Liquidity

Block DX can provide centralized trading platforms with additional liquidity. Exchanges looking to settle accounts can securely mirror trades to obtain this liquidity via BIP65 atomic swaps.

Bridging Blockchains

Blocknet is a decentralized network that connects blockchains, similar to how the internet connects computers. Whether it’s through cross-chain dApps or using the protocol as a 2nd layer to extend blockchain functionality, we provide developers with the capability to create the applications of tomorrow.

Blocknet is powered by a network of Service Nodes and Staking Nodes. Service Nodes are the computational power behind all the Blocknet's capabilities. Staking Nodes protect the network via our Proof-of-Stake (POS) system.

Stake on the Future of Decentralization

Anyone with BLOCK can easily participate in staking and receive block rewards for protecting the Blocknet network.

The stakers are responsible for securing the integrity of the Blocknet blockchain.

Service the Decentralized World

Service Node operators host full nodes of blockchains and serve off-chain oracle data to power XBridge, XRouter, and XCloud.

These services can be monetized and advertised to developers as a business.

Blocknet is governed by the community without a centralized entity. Blocknet supports its own maintenance and development through a self-funding mechanism. Service Nodes, acting as treasurers, vote to fund community proposals that serve Blocknet’s vision. Community members are the core representatives of the ideas and proposals that Blocknet implements.

Blocknet is designed to scale by allocating the resources necessary to meet the demand of connecting the decentralized world.
