The Production-ready, Multichain Interop Platform for Serious Dapp Developers
Loom Network provides developers the scalability and usability they need to build high-performance user-facing dapps today.

With seamless integrations to Bitcoin, Ethereum, Binance Chain, and all major blockchains, deploying once to Loom lets you future-proof your dapp by reaching the largest number of users possible.

What is Loom Network?

Loom Network is a multichain interop platform live in production since early 2018. Optimized for scaling high-performance dapps that require a fast and smooth user experience, the network allows dapps to offer a UX comparable to traditional applications and onboard new users without the friction of needing to download crypto wallet software.

Loom also has integrations to Bitcoin, Ethereum, Binance Chain, and Tron (with EOS and Cosmos coming soon). This allows developers to integrate assets from all major chains, as well as build a dapp only once and offer it to users on all platforms simultaneously.

What is the LOOM Token?

The LOOM token is a proof-of-stake token used to secure Loom Network's mainnet, called Basechain. LOOM holders can stake their tokens to help secure Basechain and earn rewards in the process.

The token is also used by developers to pay for dapp hosting on Loom Network. Unlike Ethereum, developers pay a flat monthly fee to host their dapps on Loom, so their users don't have to pay transaction costs.

Who’s Building on Loom?

Dozens of developers are already building on Loom.
Here are some of the more notable projects:

Why Developers Love Loom

Production-Ready TODAY

No need to wait for some distant scaling solution. Loom is live in production — so you can launch your dapp now and start on-boarding thousands of users immediately.

Fast and Scalable for Serious Dapps

Loom Network runs on Delegated Proof of Stake (DPoS) and is optimized for the fast confirmation times and high-transaction throughput necessary for serious real-world dapps.

Frictionless User Experience

Loom Network enables transactions at lightning speeds and at zero cost to your users. There’s no need for users to pay gas fees and no need for MetaMask popups at every action or button click.

Access to a Massive User Base

With our integrations and Universal Transaction Signing, users from every major chain will be able to access your Loom dapp using their native wallets. Deploy to Basechain just once and open your dapp to a massive audience.

Top-Notch Security

Loom Basechain is a DPoS blockchain with 21+ external validators located all around the world, and has more than 247,828,530 LOOM staked. The chain has also been audited by Trail of Bits — a renowned information security company specializing in blockchain tech.

Future-Proof Your Dapp

Launching your dapp on a single blockchain that’s incompatible with others comes with a risk of vendor lock-in to a losing platform. Loom Network is continually building integrations with new chains to ensure your dapp never becomes obsolete.

Deploy Your Dapp in Minutes

You are only a few simple steps away from production scale.

Loom Network is Solidity-based and Ethereum-compatible. So you can port your Solidity-based dapp to Loom in just 3 steps — and start scaling today.

Why not give it a go on our testnet? It’s super simple to get started.

./loom genkey -a mainnet_public_key -k mainnet_private_key
function getLoomProviderWithPrivateKey (privateKeyPath, chainId, writeUrl, readUrl) {
  const privateKey = readFileSync(privateKeyPath, 'utf-8');
  return new LoomTruffleProvider(chainId, writeUrl, readUrl, privateKey);
}               
basechain: {
  provider: function() {
    const chainId = 'default';
    const writeUrl = 'http://basechain.dappchains.com/rpc';
    const readUrl = 'http://basechain.dappchains.com/query';
    return new LoomTruffleProvider(chainId, writeUrl, readUrl, privateKey);
    const privateKeyPath = path.join(__dirname, 'mainnet_private_key');
    const loomTruffleProvider = getLoomProviderWithPrivateKey(privateKeyPath, chainId, writeUrl, readUrl);
    return loomTruffleProvider;
  },
network_id: '*'
}              

Optimized for User Experience

One of the biggest problems slowing down mainstream adoption of blockchain technology is things being too complicated to use by regular, non-technical folks.

Without a simple, intuitive user experience that even your mother can understand — none of this nerdy nonsense matters.

That's why Basechain is built for maximum pragmatism and practicality for dapp developers, along with intuitive user experiences for end users.

Whether you’re thinking about DeFi, supply chain management, virtual reality, e-learning platforms, or gaming, Basechain can be used for ANY type of dapp. Basechain also offers the added benefit of being accessible to all major blockchain communities, and offering the potential for multichain dapps — such as collateralizing assets in a multichain DeFi application.

For Developers, by Developers

We eat our own dog food. We’ve been building and shipping our own dapps on Loom since day 1 — which means our tech has been built from the ground up for real-world use cases.

We’re also the creators of CryptoZombies, the most popular code school for learning to build Ethereum dapps, which has been used by over 415,672+ students to date.

So it’s safe to say we understand the needs of developers building dapps for production scale.

Built on Loom

Here are some projects changing the blockchain space with their innovative uses of Loom Network tech:

AliceFi

AliceFi is an all-in-one cross-chain decentralized finance (DeFi) platform. They offer loans, insurance, a decentralized exchange for cross-chain transfers, plus a cryptocurrency savings service that provides up to 8% annual interest rates.

Axie Infinity

Axie Infinity is a crypto-collectible virtual pet game that lets you raise, breed, battle, and trade cute (but fierce) fantasy pets called Axies. The game includes an open world land system where players can attack resource nodes to harvest in-game currencies and other third-party tokens.

ShipChain

ShipChain is an end-to-end logistics platform featuring trustless, transparent tracking. It’s a fully integrated system across the entire global supply chain, from the moment a shipment leaves the production facility, to the final delivery on the customer's doorstep.

Crazy House

Crazy House Crazy House is a provably fair casino featuring non-traditional games tournaments, prizes, airdrops, and even the ability to own part of the house. Biker Bolt is the debut game you can start playing right now — with regularly scheduled tournaments to join.

Learn to Code with CryptoZombies

cryptozoimbies

CryptoZombies is the leading resource for learning to build Ethereum dapps. It's a free code school that teaches you how to write Solidity smart contracts through a series of interactive tutorials that guide you in building your own crypto-collectibles game.

This code school has been used by over 415,672+ students to date, and we’re continually creating new lessons — including some brand new lessons on Libra Blockchain Development.

Even if you’ve never coded with Solidity or Libra before — we’ll walk you through step by step, starting with the absolute basics.
