What is Hedera? Hedera is a decentralized, open-source, proof-of-stake public ledger that utilizes the leaderless, asynchronous Byzantine Fault Tolerance (aBFT) hashgraph consensus algorithm. 

The Hedera Governing Council is a decentralized and transparent governing body of independent, global organizations consisting of enterprises, web3 projects, and prestigious universities.

Hedera’s performance-optimized Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM) smart contracts, along with its easy-to-use native tokenization and consensus service APIs, enable developers to create real-time web3 applications and ecosystems that will drive the future of the internet.

Use cases & ecosystem 1. Payments. 2. De-Fi. 3. NFT's. 4. Decentralized identity. 5. Decentralized Logs. 6. Sustainability.

Build the next big thing on Hedera Developers on Hedera are first-class citizens, enabled by intuitive APIs and EVM smart contracts.

Carbon negative commitment The efficiency of hashgraph consensus enables Hedera to be the most sustainable public network, based on average energy consumed per transaction (0.000003 kWh).
