Hello world.
There’s a new OS

We’ve taken 30 years of software development and given it a new home. To the makers and mavericks, the dreamers and the pioneers, we say welcome.

Enter the new world

Hello,
Blockchain OS

Cartesi is the first Blockchain OS. It allows developers to build decentralized logic with Linux and standard programming environments preserving the decentralization and security of blockchains. That means moving beyond Solidity and coding smart contracts with rich software tools, libraries, and services developers are used to. All while, free from scalability limits.

2 Consider idiosyncrasies of RISC-V's ISA and the Cartesi Machine.
3 Respectively, for each phase: Cartesi Rollups; CR + Aggregator v1; CR + Aggregator v2.
4 Transaction cost only. Computation is for free.
