internal r&d

Our R&D team is pioneering advancement in block chain technology. The team most recently unveiled the first prototype of a revolutionary payment channel for the bitcoin network, called Thunder. The technology enables users and vendors to send and receive bitcoin without touching the main block chain. Even in the prototype phase, Thunder has the potential to facilitate secure, trustless and nearly instant payments, unleash the power of microtransactions and allow the network to handle heavy loads, and increase user privacy.
