Unit-e (U⋮) is a lightweight e-cash that pushes the limits of what blockchain technology can achieve. Unit-e provides a low latency, high throughput experience based on a Proof-of-Stake protocol with on-chain finalization.
The Unit-e protocol utilizes innovative features such as finalization, UTXO snapshots, Dandelion Lite, native SegWit or Graphene to optimize network usage, enhance privacy, and mitigate potential security issues of a Proof-of-Stake protocol. Unit-e is the subject of scientific research. The goal is to create a scalable decentralized payment system close to the physical limits. Please see the research for more detail.

Combining scientific research and professional software development produces tangible results and helps realize innovation. We work with a multidisciplinary team across institutional lines to help create the best possible experience for Unit-e users.
We are committed to working as part of the global open source community and upholding the principles of openness and transparency it represents. We seek to further evolve open source ideas to break down barriers to access and create new infrastructure for tomorrow.
We put high standards on our code, but also on our conduct. Our desire is for Unit-e to be a place where people can freely and comfortably work together towards realizing the future of electronic cash.
