Hey Gophers,
Welcome to

We are a team of passionate Go developers interested in shaping the future of open-source development. We’re currently building four key pieces of technology that work together for platform and application development in web2 and in web3 environments.

What we’re building in a nutshell

Gno Language

A programming language designed to push the boundaries of open-source development.

Gno Virtual Machine (Gno VM/Interpreter)

A virtual machine and interpreter for running Gno, fully implemented in Go.

A smart contract blockchain, and multi-user language-based operating system powered by Gno.

Proof of Contribution

The new consensus protocol that secures by incentivizing and rewarding the open-source contributions on-chain.

What is Gno? A Language, Virtual Machine, and Interpreter

Gno powers the next-generation decentralized, multi-user language-based operating system, providing Go developers with a suite of advanced features:

How we're Using Gno

Introducing A Web3 Open-Source Smart Contract Platform, powered by the Gno operating system, will be the first open-source smart contract platform for succinct and composable applications. Secured by the Proof of Contribution protocol, ensures fair and equitable rewards for open-source contributors.

You have a unique opportunity to shape the future of open-source software development with Contribute to and make an impactful difference in its early-stage development.
