We research and develop the future of enterprise-grade distributed systems
A Flare Network is a Universal Validator Network that mitigates risk in any type of system while maintaining that system’s speed and privacy.
By plugging Flare into your product, you simplify the operation of mission-critical infrastructure and open up new business models that were previously impossible.
Systems that use Flare have full control over their network usage through Federated Byzantine Agreement consensus.
