Behind the tech
Kadena is the industry’s only scalable layer-1 Proof of Work (PoW) blockchain. The principal feature that drives Kadena is scalability, which enables Kadena to deliver infrastructure-grade performance for any blockchain project. Along with our own smart contract language Pact, Kadena’s platform provides the world the tools and environment to turn ideas and ambitions into reality. Founded by Stuart Popejoy and William Martino who created JP Morgan’s first blockchain and led the SEC’s Crypto Committee, Kadena aims to allow for true blockchain mass adoption.
Kadena’s advisory team consists of experts such as Dr. Stuart Haber, the co-inventor of blockchain and the most cited author in Satoshi Nakamoto’s renowned 2008 Bitcoin white paper.
Haber’s innovations don’t end with Bitcoin but live on in Kadena with the launch of Immutable Records (IR) on our upcoming NFT platform. Founded alongside the other co-inventor of blockchain, W. Scott Stornetta, IR exploits Kadena’s unique advantages, such as institutional-grade provenance, on-chain minting and custom marketplaces.

Smarter, safer contracts
Pact is the most powerful smart contract language available for writing applications directly on the blockchain. Pact was designed to be readable by non-developers and has been battle tested in production applications for over two years.
Ahead of the curve
Pact already contains all the features that other projects say they will eventually develop, including full Formal Verification of code, error messaging, contract upgradability, multi-sign, and support for interoperability. Pact facilitates transactional logic with an ideal combination of functionality in authorization, data management, and workflow.
