What is MIX?

MIX Blockchain is a smart contract platform for decentralized content. It is fully public. It cannot be censored and no one can be prevented from participating. It is fully programmable at every level. It is a protocol for interconnected content apps that empower the individual.

Uncontrolled

No one can be prevented from publishing.

No filter bubble lock-in

New smart contracts can be written to create new filter bubbles for existing content.

Separate blockchain

MIX runs on its own clone of Ethereum, allowing the community to hard fork if necessary.
