Spacemesh is a fairly mined cryptocurrency which is permissionless, trustless secure and race-free. Spacemesh is built and distributed as a full open source project and all software work done for Spacemesh is contributed to the world as a commons under a permissive software license.
To get a full sense of the project's motivation, vision and scope, please read this intro blog post, watch or listen to Spacemesh – The Space-Time Consensus Blockchain, Proof of Space Time and Better Decentralization and explore our github repos.
Come and innovate with us at the forefront of the next major tech disruption - programmable Internet money via decentralized consensus on computations.
The project is led by the Spacemesh core development team which includes developers who are committed full-time to the project as well as part time open source contributors and collaborators.
