Blockchain for all

Blockchain For All

We’re proud to introduce the first ever cross-chain bridge. This interoperability protocol will allow people to convert their own POA Native Tokens from the POA Network onto the Ethereum network in a quick, cost-effective manner.

Introducing POA20

POA20 tokens allow two standalone blockchains to safely and securely interact with each other through cross-chain bridges. It’s a critical step towards solving the scalability and connectivity issues and opens up a whole new avenue of solutions and use cases.

Introducing POA20


POA Network allows for highly-scalable games to be built on the platform while still being backed by the security of Proof of Authority consensus. POA Network is a stand-alone blockchain allowing for native solidity support, meaning it's easily compatible when it comes to porting over development code from Ethereum to POA Network. POA offers minimal transaction costs for gamers at a fraction of the cost while being 3 times faster than Ethereum. Our bridging technology is advanced and proven, especially for ERC-721 tokens allowing players to bridge their non-fungible tokens easily from one blockchain to another and back again. POA offers both their own explorer and wallet which creates a complete functional ecosystem for games to develop and grow.
