About us

Today’s problem with blockchain is that nobody actually “uses” blockchain. How do we get more users onto blockchain?

Alacris OS is a blockchain agnostic platform that turns any developer into a blockchain developer.

  • Today’s hurdles to build on blockchain:
    • It’s hard
    • Platform selection can be confusing
    • It is very risky to deploy DApps
  • Alacris solves for four critical problems developers face:
    • Ease of Development
    • Speed to Market
    • Flexibility
    • Security



Nervos Network tackles the scalability trilemma by separating state generation and state verification/storage in a layered architecture.



Blockchains enable us to enforce scarcity and facilitate value transfer in areas where that would otherwise be impossible and, therefore, radically expand the range of problems to which economic incentives can successfully be applied.
