What is Kadena (KDA)?

Kadena is launching one of the first truly scalable blockchains that is ready for use. The public blockchain of Kadena is a braided, high-throughput Proof of Work system that runs Chainweb, a security and throughput protocol. The Kadena network will bring together public applications, private blockchains, and other compatible chains in one place, funnelling traffic to the Kadena public chain's high-bandwidth computer. Today, significant firms in banking, healthcare, and insurance employ Kadena enterprise software, which allows creators with a vision to go straight from concept to product. This system will support blockc with the launch of Kadena's public chain.


The founders of Kadena were established leaders in blockchain and cryptocurrency solutions prior to the founding of the project in 2016. JPMorgan's Emerging Blockchain group was directed by Stuart Popejoy while Will Martino was hired after serving as the SEC's Cryptocurrency Steering Committee's Tech Lead. Stuart and Will collaborated to create JPMorgan's first blockchain, currently known as JPM Coin.

Kadena’s advisory team consists of experts such as Dr. Stuart Haber, the co-inventor of blockchain and the most cited author in Satoshi Nakamoto’s renowned 2008 Bitcoin white paper. Haber’s innovations don’t end with Bitcoin but live on in Kadena with the launch of Immutable Records (IR) on our upcoming NFT platform. Founded alongside the other co-investor of blockchain, W. Scott Stornetta, IR exploits Kadena’s unique advantages, such as institutional-grade provenance, on-chain minting and custom marketplaces.
