Verifiable timestamps and ordering of events
Create and manage accounts and their keys with support for ED25519 encryption, with ECDSA384 and RSA3072 coming soon.
Native support for multiple signatures, threshold signatures, and even hierarchical signatures that contain other threshold signatures.
Request a free receipt to know consensus was reached or a detailed record of the transaction for your business.
Cryptocurrency allows for value to be transacted through ad-hoc relationships, encouraging user privacy and more seamless experiences.
By using consensus timestamps, cryptocurrency transactions have accurate ordering to make real-time bidding possible.
Cryptocurrency protects the Hedera network with its proof-of-stake system. To use a Hedera network service you’ll pay a small transaction fee.
Use the Hedera Cryptocurrency API with the Java SDK, or a community SDK, to manage accounts, keys, and hbars.
// Generate a Ed25519 private, public key pair
var newKey = Ed25519PrivateKey.generate();
var newPublicKey = newKey.getPublicKey();
// Create new account with key pair and starting balance
var newAccountId = new AccountCreateTransaction(client)
var receiptAccountId = newAccountId.getAccountId();
// Transfer from the operator to the new account without a receipt
//Check balance for the new account
var balance = client.getAccountBalance(receiptAccountId);
System.out.println("initial balance = " + balance);
With cryptocurrency, you can disintermediate traditional payments and transact in new ways, like responding to HTTP requests. Get started by adding donations or a cryptocurrency paywall to your content.
A user, with a browser extension, visits a blog with HTML tags. The extension identifies the tags as requiring that the user pay to view content.
The extension asks user for permission to pay, or they can choose to automatically authorize payments to specific websites up to a given threshold.
The extension signs a transaction with your private key and the website's payment gateway passes the transaction instructions to the Hedera network for verification.
Hedera network responds with a verification success code, updates account balances for the site and the user. The site then unlocks the URL path and content for the user.
