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 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 (GnoVM/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

A new consensus protocol designed to acknowledge and value the efforts of those involved.

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, is set to become the leading open-source smart contract platform for succinct and composable applications. With its innovative "Proof of Contribution" design, it seeks to acknowledge and value the efforts of those involved.

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.

Participate in the GopherCon Challenge Series

Dive into the challenges to interact with blockchain technology and see how realms (smart contracts) can be used for stateful applications without relying on a filesystem or database. Learn to leverage's features, such as deploying contracts both as an API and as importable Gno programs.
