Hedera offers low, fixed fees, blazing fast transactions, immediate settlement, and modern development workflows — it’s never been easier to build the next generation of financial software on the opens source, public Hedera network.
EVM-based Smart Contracts
Build and deploy EVM-based smart contracts using the most popular languages, including Solidity and Vyper, to create DeFi applications and protocols on Hedera.
15 Million Gas per Second
Hedera can process up to 15 million gas per second, the same as what Ethereum aims to achieve in an entire block.
Use the most ubiquitous web3 libraries, web3.js and ethers.js, and development tools that require a JSON-RPC relay. Build something new on Hedera or port over an existing dapp faster than ever.

Decentralized Finance. Built on Hedera.
DeFi applications built for the next-generation of finance on the open source, public Hedera network.
Fees on Hedera are fixed, denominated in USD, and paid in $HBAR — regardless of if you’re calling a native service or smart contract. View the fee schedule and estimate your costs by visiting the fee estimator.
NO FRONT RUNNING
Hedera doesn’t use a mempool to hold transactions prior to their processing and there’s no bribing of nodes. Transactions are guaranteed to be ordered fairly, so there’s no threat of frontrunning.
BLAZING FAST TRANSACTIONS
Tokens minted on Hedera are native to the network and map to ERC-20, 721, and 1155 standards — this means they adopt the same native performance, security, and low fees of $HBAR.
Fungible tokens and NFTs minted using the Hedera Token Service use ERC-20 and ERC-721 standards. Token transactions on Hedera are scalable, low cost, and interoperable.
Build, test, and deploy smart contracts on Hedera using familiar EVM tooling and libraries, such as HardHat, Truffle, Foundry, ethers.js, and more. Build something new or port over an existing application faster than ever.
The efficiency of hashgraph consensus enables Hedera to be the most sustainable public network, based on average energy consumed per transaction (0.000003 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.
