Hedera is a decentralized, open-source, proof-of-stake public ledger that utilizes the leaderless, asynchronous Byzantine Fault Tolerance (aBFT) hashgraph consensus algorithm. It is governed by a diverse, decentralized council of leading enterprises, universities, and web3 projects from around the world.
Hedera’s performance-optimized Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM) smart contracts, along with its easy-to-use native tokenization and consensus service APIs, enable developers to create real-time web3 applications and ecosystems that will drive the future of the internet.
What sets Hedera apart from other blockchains is its low, predictable fees, fair transaction ordering with consensus timestamps, and a robust codebase that ensures scalability and reliability at every layer of its network infrastructure.
Developers on Hedera are first-class citizens, enabled by intuitive APIs and EVM smart contracts. Whether you're building a weekend project or the next big thing in web3, Hedera's native network service SDKs, EVM equivalence, and tooling makes innovation and development a breeze. Hedera's robust codebase ensures massively scalable and reliable network infrastructure, making it the perfect platform for developers to deploy ecosystem-critical web3 applications and protocols.
The efficiency of hashgraph consensus enables Hedera to be the most sustainable public network, based on average energy consumed per transaction (0.00017 kWh), according to a recent study conducted by University College London.
In addition, Hedera has committed to being a carbon-negative public network through the purchase of quarterly carbon credits to offset the small amount of emissions from all public-facing infrastructure.
