The world's lightest blockchain, powered by participants.

Mina is building a privacy-preserving gateway between the real world and crypto — and the infrastructure for the secure, democratic future we all deserve.

By design, the entire Mina blockchain is about 22kb1 - the size of a couple of tweets. So participants can quickly sync and verify the network.

Easily Accessible, Now & Always

Other protocols are so heavy they require intermediaries to run nodes, recreating the same old power dynamics. But Mina is light, so anyone can connect peer-to-peer and quickly sync and verify the chain. Built on a consistent-sized cryptographic proof, the blockchain will stay accessible—even as it scales.

Truly Decentralized, with Every User Acting as a Full Node

With Mina, anyone who's syncing the chain is also validating transactions like a full node. Mina's design means any participant can take part in proof-of-stake consensus, have access to strong censorship-resistance and secure the blockchain.

Dapps, Where People Control Their Data

Today, users have no alternative to handing over their data to powerful players in exchange for participation in the modern world. But Mina’s SNARK-powered decentralized apps (Snapps) keep users in control by validating and sharing proofs about their data — rather than the data itself. Even to counterparties. And with logic and data computed off-chain and verified on-chain, Snapps make scalability simple and large computations efficient and cost-effective.

A Private Gateway to the Real World

Other blockchains don’t interact with the internet, limiting their applications’ scope and utility. But Mina’s Snapps can privately interact with any website and access verified real world data for use on-chain. So developers can leverage the world’s information in computing and decision-making to change the way we live and work — without ever compromising privacy.

Powered by a Growing Community

Other blockchains are run by powerful ecosystem intermediaries. But Mina is powered by participants, with an uncapped number of block producers. Our inclusive community unites people around the world with a passion for decentralized blockchain. In fact, we have one of the largest and most active communities of any project launched in the last two years.
