About Project

Lightstreams is a low fee, high performance blockchain with private file sharing. Fully Ethereum compatible and interoperable, permitting Decentralized Finance (DeFi) apps to run seamlessly. Due to capacity and scalability issues, operating on Ethereum today means slow performance and high transaction fees. In addition, all data recorded to Ethereum is publicly accessible with no privacy controls for sharing files or selling content.

Lightstreams is a technology stack for developing decentralized applications. The stack has a fast blockchain designed to support responsive applications and a decentralized datastore with privacy controls. At Lightstreams, we want to help you create powerful apps where users are in full control of their personal data. Our tools will help you quickly build the new generation of Decentralized Apps (DApps) that will make this happen!

Lightstreams provides an Ethereum-compatible blockchain called Lightchain that uses a Tendermint Byzantine Fault Tolerance(BFT) consensus mechanism to achieve fast consensus on new block proposals. Transaction throughput is 50x faster with near-instant settlement times.

Lightchain is a public blockchain like Ethereum. Any device can connect to the network without requiring permission and begin interacting with the blockchain.
