Zero compromise open-source blockchain

The world's first breakthrough hybrid Account + UTXO based architecture engineered for massive layer one (L1) on-chain scaling and Turing Complete smart contracts.

Unbounded and Scalable

Proven protocol scalability that is capable of handling thousands of transactions per second. Block sizes are decided economically by miners as the network grows.

POW SHA512/256

Proof-of-work is the only consensus system for maximum security and efficiency. Embracing full decentralization so that no miner can stake to centralize the network. Fair launched and community mined from the beginning. The FIPS SHA512/256 Standard is up to 50% more efficient than SHA256 on 64 bit architectures.

Full Stack Open Source

The full node, libraries and modules were released from day 1. All source code is immediately available and Open Source MIT Licensed.

Decentralized Network

Radiant is open-source; its design is public, nobody owns or controls Radiant and everyone can take part. Anyone can start an initiative to build their dreams today.

Network Fuel

The fuel for the network is the Radiant unit, which is used to pay transaction fees to miners for smart contracts and data data storage. The Radiant unit emission is similar to Bitcoin.

Smart Contracts

Powered by a complete set of the original OP codes, complex smart contracts like auctions, games, tokens and anything you can think of — is now possible. View contract library

Induction Proofs

The induction proof system makes it possible to efficiently compose outputs in any manner, without compromising the inherent parallelism and scalability characteristics of the UTXO based architecture.

Account Emulation

The world's first breakthrough hybrid Account + UTXO based architecture engineered for massive layer one (L1) on-chain scaling. Radiant offers the benefits of a UTXO blockchain along with the advanced capabilities of EVM compatible blockchains, but with none of the downsides.

Community Driven

Launched like Bitcoin, from block height 0, on 2022–06–21 02:42 UTC. No single entity controls the network and protocol. An open peer-to-peer digital asset system is available for anybody to build on top.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is Radiant?
Radiant is a revolutionary network designed to solve the problems with all existing blockchains in terms of scale, parallelism and Turing Complete programming. Radiant is a peer-to-peer digital asset system that enables direct exchange of value without going through a central party. Similarly to Bitcoin, the Radiant network requires minimal structure, and timestamps transactions into an ongoing hash-based chain of proof-of-work (SHA512/256).
Who created Radiant?
Radiant was created and bootstrapped as a community service by a tiny group of people who wanted a stable blockchain. The initiative was forged from the desire to have a scalable, unbounded blockchain that has all the best abilities between the major blockchains such as Bitcoin, Ethereum, Solana, Cardano and more.
Is there an Initial Coin Offering (ICO) for Radiant?
There was never any public or private fundraising, no Initial Coin Offering (ICO), no securities offering, no VC, and no crowdfunding of any type. The network was fairly bootstrapped similar to Bitcoin using pure proof-of-work from block height 0 and units of Radiant are emitted to the miners for energy expended according to the network's consensus policy. Anyone may participate and earn on the network by contributing computing power, similarly to Bitcoin itself.
Who is responsible for the Radiant network?
Radiant uses peer-to-peer technology to operate with no central authority; managing transactions and the issuing of Radiant units is Radiant is open-source; its design is public, nobody owns or controls Radiant and everyone can take part.
How can I start to learn and develop on Radiant?
Get started from the Radiant node, modules and libraries available on Github.
Where can I learn more about the design of Radiant?
Radiant offers the benefits of a UTXO blockchain along with the advanced capabilities of EVM compatible blockchains. Read the Documents
