What Is Kadena?

Introduction to Kadena

Launched in 2016, Kadena is the industry’s only scalable layer-1 Proof of Work (PoW) blockchain. The principal feature that drives Kadena is scalability, which enables Kadena to deliver infrastructure-grade performance for any blockchain project. Along with it's own smart contract language, Pact, Kadena’s platform provides the world the tools and environment to turn ideas and ambitions into reality. Kadena aims to allow for true blockchain mass adoption.

Kadena's public blockchain, Chainweb, is the only sharded and scalable layer-1 PoW network in production today. It utilizes a PoW (Proof of Work) consensus mechanism that improves throughput and scalability while maintaining the security and integrity found in Bitcoin. To achieve this breakthrough in scalability, Kadena braids together multiple Bitcoin-like chains.

Kadena is decentralized, safe, secure, scalable, energy efficient, and has near zero gas fees.


NFTs (Non-Fungible Tokens) are unique digital assets that represent ownership of a specific item, such as a piece of artwork, music, or a collectible. They are stored on a blockchain network and use cryptographic proof to verify their authenticity and ownership.

Kadena's platform also allows us to launch our IRL (in real life, or "physical") projects alongside Web 3 NFTs! We're excited to say that we have several different NFT projects in the works, with Pit Bull Bushidō coming soon! We plan to reward those who mint our NFTs with IRL prizes and rewards. We also are planning to expand our Islands of Dāmaya project through many different Kadena based NFT projects.
