Blockstack is leading the way to a decentralized computing era

Blockstack is pioneering the next evolution of computing

Blockstack is a decentralized computing platform that puts users in control of their data and identity. Apps built on Blockstack make data breaches and trust violations an antiquated notion.

Over 100 independent developer teams have built apps on our platform. Open-source software is at the heart of everything we do; we’re active on Slack, GitHub, Twitter, and the Blockstack Forum.

Blockstack PBC, a public benefit corporation at the heart of the Blockstack ecosystem, has raised $50M+ in capital to develop the core protocols and developer tools for the platform. We’re headquartered in New York City, with a globally distributed team that includes computer scientists from Princeton, Stanford, MIT and other top universities.

After four years of research and development, we’ve deployed the initial version of our full-stack computing platform that can scale blockchain-based apps to millions of users today.

Highlights

  • Founded in 2013 at Princeton

  • $50M in funding

  • 4 years of research & development

  • 7,000+ active developers and enthusiasts

  • 100+ apps launched on Blockstack
