The Internet of 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, Blocknet provides developers with the capability to create the applications of tomorrow.

Build with Blocknet Components

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

XRouter

XRouter is a decentralized communication layer that connects bulky blockchain networks to the lightweight multi-chain dApps of the future.

Testimonials

Read what others in the industry have to say about Blocknet.

"For those who don't know, the the Blocknet team has some amazing tech that utilizes SPV proofs to enable cross-chain interop in very useful and valuable ways. Im a big fan of their work and you should be too."

Dan Wasyluk
Co-founder of Syscoin,
Co-founder/CEO of BlockFoundry

"This is what we've been waiting for since the Blocknet's launch. Trade from your own wallets. 0 counterparty risk, 0 deposits/withdrawals. Run a BLOCK service node & some wallets, [and] you've enabled those trading pairs for everyone. And those traders pay you fees."

"Under appreciated, under valued, powerful technology! The Blocknet delivers what the ecosystem is yearning. The project just keeps on iterating, without abating, no reluctance to challenge the status quo. A disruptor amongst disrupting technology."

Noah Seidman
DigiByte Android Developer

"While most others are posing as decentralized exchanges, here's a real one."

Heidi Chakos
Crypto YouTube Personality

"I prefer decentralized exchanges like Block DX Exchange which charge you nothing [for listing], you just need to make sure the technology works and I think that’s a push in the right direction. The less barriers we have to entry, the less centralized points of failure, the less places you can get hacked or lose money, the better crypto becomes."

Crypto SI
PIVX team member

"[Centralized exchanges] are capable of creating multisig wallets to protect their clientele. Do any of them try? No! Requires work and is a hassle! They may be forced to once the true DEX systems start stealing their volume. Evolve or die. Thanks to Block DX Exchange for helping the evolution."

Craig Claussen
BitBay Applications Manager

"Atomic Swaps to [and] from DigiByte thanks to the Blocknet! This is the future of exchanges for cryptocurrency where it's direct, P2P, without it ever leaving your private-keys. I used their pre-beta last year, it's amazing!"

Josiah Spackman
DigiByte Ambassador

"One of the major factors tipped to drive momentum to Litecoin’s value is Blocknet’s announcement that LTC will soon function as a cross-blockchain decentralized app. This is because LTC is now compatible with the Blocknet protocol."

Powered by Blocknet

Whether it’s through cross-chain dApps or using the protocol as a second layer to extend blockchain functionality, the Blocknet protocol provides developers with the capability to create the decentralized applications of tomorrow.

The Blocknet Network

Blocknet is governed by the community, for the community, without a centralized entity.
The project supports its own development through the self-funding mechanism.

Governance

Blocknet is self-governed by its stakeholders, meaning that stakers, token-holders, Service Node operators and others with a stake in the blockchain have the ability to make decisions together.
