Ultra-Fast, Truly Scalable and Provably Secure
Fission is the next-generation public blockchain that solves the blockchain trilemma by achieving the best balance among scalability, security and decentralization with rigorous mathematical proofs
High throughput alone is far from enough. Fission solves the scalability problem from all aspects by offering an innovative platform that achieves high throughput, low confirmation times, while scaling to large block sizes.
No blockchain will be secure without active participation from users, and we propose a novel PoS-based consensus protocol that offers security guarantees given a lower-bounded system activity in a energy-efficient manner.
Blockchains are much less promising without decentralization. Fission retains this most important and revolutionary value of blockchains without compromising scalability and security, or introducing centralized authorities.
Fission re-innovates all the core elements of blockchains – computation, networking, and storage – in a holistic manner. This achieves high scalability in both terms of throughput and confirmation times, while maintaining blockchain's core values of security and decentralization.
Empowered by our novel transaction pipelining model, adaptive partitioning mechanism and PoS-based consensus protocol, Fission achieves the optimal throughput and maintains that performance while scaling and adapting to billions of users and time-varying transaction volumes, respectively.
Fission is the first blockchain that applies an innovative hybrid network to provide optimal information propagation latency which results in best confirmation times. Fission's ultra-fast algorithms guarantee the best performance respecting network dynamics and heterogeneity.
By optimally utilizing the resources of the underline P2P network, Fission achieves a high data availability while scaling to the growing block sizes without degrading the throughput or the confirmation times.
Fission's founding team has extensive experience and proven track records on both academic and industry. They have successfully built systems and products that are serving billions of people everyday.
