Welcome Guide

Community resource for all things Harmony

Hello human, welcome to the rabbithole...

There is so much to learn about any blockchain project but Layer 1 protocols present a particularly broad landscape and everyone who comes to us has a different angle of attack.

Our website is really just a front door for the project and rather than load it up with hundreds of pages of information we decided to offload that to Gitbook which offers a beautiful and elegant framework for all that detail.

Here you'll be able to find everything you need about our team, our token, our technical innovations, who's building on us and how you can start building, staking and contributing as a valuable human on our network.

What's the big deal about Harmony?

Glad you asked.

  • Ex Apple, Google, Amazon with multiple exits

  • Sharding at network AND consensus level

  • Highly attractive scaling solution for existing dApps

  • Lightning fast execution -- zero to mainnet in 12 months

  • Top tier market interest: Binance Labs, Coinbase shortlist

  • Staking and node rewards via Effective PoS

  • Community driven - add your power to the network by running a node, introducing clients or by building tools

  • Core focus: Gaming, DeFi, Data Sharing

Harmony is a proof-of-stake blockchain meaning you can earn rewards for staking but there are so many other ways to get involved by participating in daily activities, introducing us to clients, building tools all while earning more $ONE.
