Our mission is to build and protect global, privacy-preserving, permissionless and off-chain smart contracts.Explore Us
Off-chain SoK (2019)
A systemization of knowledge for off-chain protocols. It explores channels, routing, commit chains, privacy and security.
We proposed the first accountable third party watching service (PISA) that can be deployed on Ethereum without any hard-fork.
Case Study (2018)
We have performed and published the first empirical case study to evaluate state channels as a scaling solution for cryptocurrencies.
Sprites Channel (2017)
We are among the first team to propose how to concretely construct (and peer-reviewed) off-chain state channels with Sprites and Kitsune.
E-Cash Survey (2016)
Summarises the field of micropayment protocols including classical e-cash protocols, real-world products and cryptocurrencies.
Watch & Protect
Our focus is building an accountable watching service, PISA, to support off-chain protocols in Bitcoin and Ethereum.
Scales the network by simply reducing its load. Transact locally instead of the global network, while retaining similar security guarantees.
Off-chain protocols assume users are always online. We will alleviate this assumption by watching off-chain protocols on behalf of users.
Channel outsourcing protocols such as PISA are a critical piece of infrastructure for blockchain layer two
The team behind PISA is world-class; at Counterfactual we’re excited to be working with them to make take state channels to production
The PISA team has long-standing experience in the field of state channels and we at Raiden Network appreciate their excellent work. We are looking forward to continuing the collaboration in the future.
