What is GoChain?

A Better Blockchain and Cryptocurrency

GoChain is a scalable, high performance, low cost, and decentralized cryptocurrency and blockchain that supports smart contracts and distributed applications.

  • A public cryptocurrency
  • Build decentralized applications and rock solid smart contracts
  • Fully compatible with existing Ethereum wallets, smart contracts and other tools
  • Fast transactions and contract execution
  • Next generation decentralized app platform goes beyond Ethereum smart contracts - coming Q4 2018

GoChain Benefits

GoChain's mission is to provide a scalable, low cost, energy efficient platform for digital currency and decentralized applications.

10x More Decentralized

Open decentralization did not work as intended as more than 70% of mining is in China and the majority of that is run by just a few companies. GoChain forces nodes to be in different countries, run by unrelated people/companies.
10x more decentralized

100x Faster

GoChain supports very high transaction volumes with fast verifications. Ethereum can only process 13 transactions per second, GoChain can process 1300 transactions per second.
100x more transactions per second

1000x Less Energy

The energy used to run the Bitcoin network could power more than 3.5 million US households, 1 million to run Ethereum. We think that's completely unnacceptable and unsustainable. GoChain uses a small fraction of the energy used to run other cryptocurrencies.
1000x (at least) less energy consumption

Frequently Asked Questions

We believe Ethereum is one of the better blockchain protocols today, due to supporting smart contracts. Smart contracts will have a huge impact on so many industries. And while we love what the Ethereum org has done, they are progressing on their path, and we would like to take it in a different direction. We believe we can improve on some core things (speed, energy, etc) and also we plan to improve on the smart contract system to make it easier to use and less chance for error.
