Swirlds Unveils SDK to Build Serverless, Secure Apps in the Cloud

Cloud , IT Innovations , Infrastructure

Swirlds, building the trust layer for the internet, today released the Software Development Kit (SDK) for the hashgraph distributed consensus platform, which is free for download. The Swirlds software development platform goes beyond blockchain, providing capabilities not previously possible with existing technology, to build and run shared worlds—fully distributed applications that harness the power of the cloud without servers. With Swirlds, developers build applications that rapidly achieve consensus, resulting in fair, fast, proven and efficient transactions without any single point of failure.

Hashgraph technology – Fair, Fast and Proven

Swirlds removes the obstacles inherent in blockchain technology. Blockchain is inefficient and does not enforce fairness. It can be challenged with high latency and probabilistic consensus, which often requires costly and wasteful mining.

In contrast, with Swirlds, transactions are:

· Fair: As Swirlds does not rely on miners, Swirlds applications ensure the actual order of transactions is the consensus order, and all transactions are included.

· Fast: Swirlds does not require “proof–of-work.” Transactions happen in milliseconds, instead of minutes or hours.

· Proven: Developers and users quickly receive absolute proof of the consensus results of their actions for 100 percent order certainty.

Leveraging the hashgraph distributed consensus algorithm, the Swirlds platform enables developers to efficiently create always-available, serverless distributed applications of unlimited scope and scale.

“Developers want to create trusted, distributed applications that are not controlled by any single organization, for uses such as distributed identity directories, online auctions, stock markets, cryptocurrencies, and multiplayer games,” said Dr. Leemon Baird, founder and CEO of Swirlds. “Using the power of Java, developers build smart contracts and can go beyond to build entire shared worlds. This is the first time these concepts have been brought together on a single platform.”
