The evolution will not be centralised
An ultra-lean and compact PoW blockchain, designed for maximum decentralisation.
Secured by collaborating users, not competing miners.
A complete node runs in full on a mobile phone or IoT device.
Features native tokens and smart contracts.
Each device on the Minima network is a complete node. Designed for maximum decentralisation.
Minima nodes are designed to run on mobile and IoT devices, requiring little storage or processing power.
Minima is engineered to use decentralised energy, making it the most sustainable PoW protocol.

TX-PoW allows co-operating users to secure the chain, rather than competing miners.
Total PoW is stored using a hierarchy of super blocks, significantly reducing storage needs.
Merkelized proofs allow users to validate transactions without having to store the entire database.

The world is becoming more connected. However, centralised systems such as banks and middlemen used to verify online transactions cannot cope - they're slow, expensive, unable to scale and vulnerable to cyber attacks.
First generation blockchain projects were seen as a solution to connect people and devices, but they have all suffered from a tendency to become centralised.
Minima’s unique blockchain will create the most decentralised – and therefore secure – system for connecting mobile and IoT devices. Every user is equal and stores their own data, enabling transparent and secure connectivity.

Successful code audit by Swisscom Blockchain AG, with a 100% pass rate and a testnet across three continents.
After five years of development, the command-line testnet is now available on GitHub.
Proof of Concept successfully completed in 2019 with Manx Telecom. Further PoCs in plan for 2020.

Want to get to grips with the key fundamentals that drive Minima but don't have the time to take a deep dive into the protocol? Here's Minima elevator pitch to get you up to speed quickly.

Our Chief Blockchain Architect, Paddy Cerri, addresses the fundamental importance of a blockchain, censorship-resistance. How Bitcoin will eventually become threatening enough to reserve currencies for a state-level attack and how this belief led him to create a truly decentralised censorship-resistant cryptocurrency, Minima.
