What is Tezos?

Tezos is a decentralized, public blockchain with a focus on upgradeability, smart contract security, and governance. Stakeholders vote on protocol amendments through an on-chain governance system to ensure that the network maintains state-of-the-art technology. The protocol’s emphasis on open participation has led to an especially vibrant validator, stakeholder, and builder community. Learn more about Tezos at https://tezos.com

Why Hack on Tezos?

Inherent Network Upgradeability: Tezos mitigates hard forks through an in-protocol self-amendment process that automatically upgrades all nodes to the latest agreed-upon version. This lowers the coordination costs of executing upgrades in order to better retain its network effect.

Institutional-Grade Smart Contracts: Michelson, Tezos’ low-level smart contract language, supports formal verification which uses math to prove that code will perform correctly. This is essential to building mission-critical applications where the cost of error is extremely high.

Continuity Focused Governance: The network is designed to have an ever-evolving and adaptable governance structure to maximize the network’s longevity through its decentralized on-chain governance mechanism.
