Red Belly Blockchain

Even large-scale applications deserve an unforkable blockchain. Endemic to Sydney, Australia, the Red Belly Blockchain builds upon cutting edge consensus research to preserve integrity in a public consortium regardless of failures and attacks.

The expertise of the Concurrent Systems Research Group is in the theory and practice of distributed computing. With many years of experience, the group members have designed the first fully distributed consensus algorithms with French and Spanish researchers.


The Red Belly Blockchain offers unprecedented throughput of more than 400 thousands transactions per second (7x the throughput achieved by Visa). Its safety aspect is of invaluable importance for critical industries, like banking, and offer performance that scales horizontally.


Our researchers in collaboration with Data61-CSIRO, demonstrated the limitations of forkable blockchains (like Bitcoin and Ethereum) and how one can issue a Balance Attack to double spend, which consists of stealing assets from the blockchain.
