Cartesi is building an operating system for dApps. The project enables complex and intensive computations run in a Linux environment, outside the blockchain, without compromising decentralization. Cartesi aims to make dApps significantly more powerful, cost-effective, easier to develop, and portable. The goal is to bring mainstream productivity to developers and a satisfying experience for users.

Scalability: Intensive computations on massive amounts of data are performed off-chain with the same security guarantees offered by the blockchain.

Programmability: dApp logic runs under Linux, with a choice of thousands of open-source software components to mix and match.

Ease of Adoption: Developers can work in a familiar environment with no artificial limitations and with access to all their favorite tools.

Decentralization: Consensus is securely reached on-chain with no need for reputation protocol, Trusted Execution Environment, or central servers on the cloud.

Portability: Cartesi aims to make dApps portable across the most important public blockchains that support smart contracts.
