Symbol is Your Blockchain Platform

Symbol is a developer-friendly blockchain platform for businesses. It reduces cost, complexity, and time-to-market so businesses can be more competitive.

Symbol offers flexible and secure customizable solutions through simple, yet powerful, built-in features. Developers are able to easily integrate blockchain technology into their projects or create powerful dApps using Symbol’s REST API. This allows creating a variety of architectural solutions with lightweight code efficiently, in any programming language.

Symbol provides access to both public and private blockchains, individually or as a hybrid, providing options to best suit your company’s needs.


At the time of writing, Symbol’s MAIN_NET has not been released. The network specification, documentation, and tooling presented may suffer variations before the network launch. See here the complete roadmap for the public launch: Symbol Launch Plan.
