The Internet of Blockchains

Blocknet empowers the passionate communities behind every coin with atomic swaps on a truly decentralized cross-blockchain platform. Blocknet serves as a connector between blockchains, markets, and communities.


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 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 a truly decentralized exchange that enables trading freedom for connected blockchain communities. Listing on Block DX is free and does not require our permission or control.

Peer to Peer

With Block DX you'll never have to send your coins to a 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 freedom between any two coins. Communities can trade coins between each other directly.

Centralized Exchange Liquidity

Block DX can provide centralized trading platforms with additional liquidity. Exchanges looking to settle accounts can trade with Blocknet users to obtain this liquidity via BIP65 atomic swaps.

Bridging Communities

The Blocknet is a decentralized platform connecting blockchain communities together. Whether it’s through trading or cross-chain Dapps, we want to provide new capabilities to each community we support. We are proud to support the trading of an ever growing number of coins on Block DX:

Our community is constantly working to add support for new coins. Subscribe here to be notified of new coin integrations.

The 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 can easily create a Staking Node and receive block rewards for protecting the Blocknet network.

The stakers are responsible for securing the Blocknet network.

Service the Decentralized World

Service Nodes are the computational backbone of the Blocknet's cross-chain communication platform. Service Nodes not only run Blocknet nodes, but also full nodes of every blockchain that the Blocknet supports. Service Nodes are responsible for hosting multiple blockchains and enabling cross-chain Dapps.

Blocknet is governed by the community without a centralized entity. Blocknet supports its own maintenance and development through a treasury system that allocates an additional 10% of all new coins minted each month. 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.
