The Platform for Distributed Applications
The Swirlds software development platform goes beyond blockchain and traditional DLT, providing capabilities not previously possible, to build and run shared worlds—fully distributed applications that harness the power of the cloud without central servers. Now users can develop applications with fair decision making, speed, trust and reliability, at a fraction of the cost of traditional server-based platforms.
Developers want to create trusted, distributed applications that are not controlled by any single organization, for uses such as distributed identity directories, online auctions, stock markets, cryptocurrencies, and multiplayer games. Using the power of Java, developers build smart contracts and can go beyond to build entire shared worlds. This is the first time these concepts have been brought together on a single platform.
Swirlds broadens the range of applications that can be decentralized, providing a platform for building the trust layer of the Internet
