What is Massa?

Massa is a public blockchain built to be scalable, efficient and secure. Massa uses a novel Proof-of-Stake consensus mechanism that massively increases throughput by parallelizing block creation, allowing up to 10'000 transactions per second.

Massa provides the following key innovations:

  1. Autonomous Smart Contracts: Massa's smart contracts can be programmed to execute autonomously, without the need for any external triggers or oracles.
  2. Decentralized Web: decentralized applications can be hosted entirely on the Massa blockchain, reducing the exposure of dApps to centralized services.
  3. Developer Friendly: Massa's smart contracts are written in TypeScript, a popular programming language that is familiar to many developers.
