Aleph Zero is a peer-reviewed DAG platform that’s scalable, fast and developer-friendly.
It’s a Proof-of-Stake public blockchain with private smart contracts built by a world-class team that aims to reach mass adoption of Distributed Ledger Technology.
First iteration of a DAG-based Asynchronous Byzantine Fault Tolerant (aBFT) consensus protocol.
Finalizing proof of security and liveness under asynchronicity conditions.
Aleph Consensus 1.5 — enabling the production of proofs for outside users, ensuring that a given transaction is validated.
Commencing research on smart contracts.
Aleph Governance 1.0 — a basic protocol for committee swaps.
Aleph Consensus 2.5 — switching from gossip to reliable broadcast (RBC) to improve latency.
Aleph Beacon 1.0 — the first aBFT randomness beacon with trustless setup.
Aleph Smart Contracts 1.0
Aleph Governance 1.5 — adding hot-seat governance model.
Aleph Smart Contracts 1.5 — off-chain computed smart contracts with Truebit-like disputes on Aleph platform.

Aleph Common 1.5 — research ongoing.
Aleph Cloud 1.0 — IPFS on Aleph chain.
Aleph Consensus 3.0 — switching from reliable broadcast to normal broadcast with a fall-back to gossip to further improve latency.
