Empowering the decentralised web

ACCESSIBILITY

Anyone, anywhere any platform

FUNCTIONALITY

Light footprint, high speed and software on chip capability makes Catalyst truly fast & scalable

DEMOCRACY

Rewarding computational effort fairly, by using collaborative rather than competitive consensus

How we do it

Any web 2.0 service is made up of a mix of data and services combined to create a rich and engaging user experience.

Web 3.0 services likewise will need to support the same level of sophistication along with broad datasets while enabling businesses to reuse and transition their data and codebases to the web 3.0 world.

Catalyst has been designed and developed from the ground up with these requirements at its heart, to create a practical environment for the rapid migration and deployment of web 3.0 services at scale.

Work in familiar languages and frameworks such as .NET, combine files and ledger datasets, work efficiently with minimal overhead.
