All blockchain solutions are designed with cryptographic primitives, but their designs vary in terms of speed, security, and decentralization. Most have had to face the dilemma of choosing a trade-off between these qualities. Our research team’s core focus has been to devise protocols that resolve this dilemma once and for all. We’re building solutions that harness better performance at lower costs with higher degrees of decentralization and security. That’s the principal problem we’re cracking at the cryptographic and protocol design level.
