Finally, a new distributed ledger ecosystem that doesn't choke.

A Peer-Reviewed, Leaderless Protocol

Aleph Zero is a DAG protocol that solves blockchain shortcomings. With scalability, speed, and leaderless qualities, we are getting closer to reaching mass adoption of Distributed Ledger Technology.

Golden Security Standards

Aleph Zero tackles known issues of blockchain-based protocols. It stays immune to double-spending, nothing-at-stake, DDoS, bribery, and Sybil attacks.

An Open-Sourced Platform

Aleph protocol is open-sourced. Everyone can work on the code and adjust it to their own purposes. It’s a community-driven technology.


Peer-reviewed infrastructure that simply works better

Aleph Zero gets you to layer 2 speeds without having to worry about usability and security.

We started out with a novel, DAG-based consensus protocol. We made sure the most basic layer is the best in the industry.

Now, we are integrating a decentralized storage solution using IPFS into the Aleph platform.

What kind of platform would we be without Smart Contracts? Aleph team is working on a fast, low-cost, off-chain Smart Contract System designed for easy deployment.

Don't miss out on Aleph's unique features

Aleph is Fast

  • Aleph is fast. Transactions are processed continuously.
  • As a DAG
    Directed Acyclic Graph is a data structure in which a sequence can only go from earlier to later. The transactions are confirmed by the previous ones.
    , Aleph creates multiple blocks at the same time, without a queue.
  • Aleph is responsive and able to produce consensus with minimum data required to communicate to other nodes.

Aleph is Secure

  • There’s no single point of failure. With a Hot Seats Governance
    Aleph's committee rotates every couple of minutes.
    , the platform is fully decentralized.
  • It is proven to be 100% secure against attackers which don’t control a substantial part of the network.
  • Aleph is based on an original, fully asynchronous
    Aleph doesn’t rely on any timing assumptions on the delay of the network and ensures that all honest transactions will be confirmed. Even at times of total asynchrony.
    , Byzantine Fault Tolerant
    A BFT protocol is resilient to malicious committee members as long as their number is less than 33%. What’s more, malicious behavior has no impact on the validation process. Once a transaction gets validated, it will stay validated, i.e. there are no rewrites of the history.
      and leaderless
    A leaderless consensus protocol doesn’t have any leader in control of creating a total ordering of units at any stage of the process.
    consensus protocol. It is able to resist all known vectors of attacks.

Aleph Runs Scalable Smart Contracts

  • Aleph decentralizes applications — just as Bitcoin decentralizes finance.
  • Aleph Smart Contracts are Turing complete
    A Turing complete machine, programming language or algorithm is able to solve any computational problem, provided with infinite computing power.
    . You can build them with popular languages of programming as Golang or Python.
  • Aleph runs Smart Contracts written or compiled to WebAssembly. They are computed off-chain, with on-chain published proofs of agreement.

Aleph runs Decentralized File Storage

  • Aleph’s team considers Decentralized File Storage with hooks into InterPlanetary File System (IPFS) as an industry standard.
  • The data — and the hash — are stored on IPFS has a particular location which then lands on the Aleph ledger.

100.000 TX/s is not the only things that matters

Our Proof-of-Concept's testing speed was capped at 100.000 transactions per second and 128-member committee spanning five continents. For validation time, we got down to 6 seconds — and that's just Python. Just wait and see how we're rocking our Golang testnet.
