The future of the internet is being built on Tezos–with user participation and governance at its core. Users can directly and frictionlessly interface with each other over a decentralized network, exchanging value and interacting with various applications, without the need for intermediaries. On Tezos, Web3 can be a truly user-governed and user-centric movement, the way it was meant to be.
Tezos is designed to provide the safety and code correctness required for assets and other high value use cases at both the protocol and application layers by leveraging languages OCaml and Michelson, which facilitate formal verification, a practice commonly used in mission-critical industries. The future of Web3 can be secure on Tezos.
The Tezos platform was built with mechanisms to ensure active community governance and participation–a key component of Web3. Users can actively participate by evaluating, proposing, or approving amendments to Tezos. This empowers the type of collaborative innovation that keeps Tezos on the bleeding edge of technology, and it’s why Tezos is best positioned to underpin the Web3 revolution.
Unlike Proof-of-Work blockchains like Bitcoin or Ethereum, Tezos’ Proof-of-Stake requires significantly less energy and cost to operate, making it an ideal alternative platform for building blockchain applications that are eco-friendly. As the Web3 movement gains in adoption, scaling responsibly requires a more energy-efficient approach. Tezos delivers on this today.
Tezos is one of the leading smart contracts Proof of Stake blockchains. Tezos smart contracts can use formal verification, allowing them to be mathematically verified, reliable, and secure.
Tezos is built to adjust, adapt, and add features and functionality through its proven on-chain upgrade mechanism.
Tezos is built to remain state-of-the-art. Its modular architecture and formal upgrade mechanism minimizes disruptions while offering regular upgradability and enhanced functionality over time.

A new proposal has been submitted and is being evaluated and considered by the community.
Enabled smart contract optimistic rollups on bleeding edge testnets, preparing the protocol for the future full integration of SCORUs. Introduced the first steps of pipelined block validation, aiming to streamline the block validation process. Implemented improved randomness with VDFs, event logging in smart contracts, and more.
Introduced Transaction Optimistic Rollups (TORUs), an experiment into enshrined rollups, leading to increased throughput, lower fees, and a pathway to significantly increased long-term scalability. Introduced improvements to tickets and sapling, enabling improved network privacy features and increased decentralization for Tezos tokens.
Introduced Tenderbake, a new and significantly upgraded Tezos consensus algorithm, which enables fast finality and improved scalability for the Tezos blockchain. Introduced a variety of other changes that improve the baking experience, such as reducing the amount of tokens required to be a validator, a rework of the baking and endorsement rewards mechanism, and more.
