World’s highest usage blockchain
Capacity horizontally scales as subnet blockchains are seamlessly combined into one unified blockchain. Blocks and transactions per second are unbounded.
ICP costs $5 / GB / year
Storing data in smart contract memory allows ICP dapps to dynamically access it without querying external sources or relying on centralized cloud storage.
Crypto cloud efficiency
An average ICP transaction executes 6’660’000 instructions compared to ETH’s 83’000, while each instruction is orders of magnitude less expensive due to ICP’s efficiency.
Today, blockchains only process tokens and clips of data.
Tomorrow, blockchain will become a decentralized crypto cloud.
Blockchain will eat the centralized cloud, and become the everything stack, which hosts unstoppable systems and services, and rich fully-decentralized Web3 experiences.
It's already happening at scale on the Internet Computer, which is powering a blockchain singularity.
Join the movement.

OpenChat raised 1M ICP in 6 hours
Open Chat is an early "open internet service." An SNS DAO assumed control of its smart contracts, and swapped $ICP for its governance tokens, placing its community in control, and creating a powerful community treasury.
