A layer-1 blockchain that promotes openness at a massive scale and empowers developers to build web 3.0 applications.

Our Story

Saito started back in 2017, when the founders realized that Proof of Work and Proof of Stake can pay for network security, but cannot for anything else that networks need to scale.

Saito delivers a new economic model for blockchain. Saito Consensus aligns incentives for all participants, paying nodes for scale and while remaining open.

Our Mission

To create a real economy running on this network, that supports an open ecosystem of peer to peer applications, where users are sovereign and own their data, and providers that serve them best are most profitable.
