Conflux Network

Conflux Network (CFX) is a utility-based cryptocurrency token issued to operate within the Conflux network's ecosystem. Conflux Network is an open protocol for a new space of DApps, finance, and Web 3.0. Conflux Network is a quick and secured public blockchain that combines proof-of-work and a tree-graph structure to originate a new generation of decentralized commerce. 


Conflux Network is an open network that was built to drive the next generation of global commerce by unlocking the decentralized applications and digital assets of tomorrow. Conflux enables a secure and interoperable flow of assets and data across protocols and applications to create an 'internet of value' for everyone. Conflux Protocol's public, permissionless blockchain is powerful and developer-friendly.

It is a layer-1 blockchain protocol that offers heightened scalability, security, and extensibility for the next generation of open commerce, decentralized applications, financial services, and Web 3.0.

The Conflux network provides significant performance improvements with its processing of parallel blocks in a Directed Acyclic Graph (DAG) structure, which lowers confirmation times and increases transaction throughput substantially. The Conflux consensus algorithm operates with a special Directed Acyclic Graph (DAG) structure known as Tree-Graph.

By integrating proof of work into a Tree Graph architecture, Conflux delivers a robust network with Solidity compatibility, zero congestion, and low fees. It is a Proof-of-work system (PoW) blockchain network that allows the parallel processing of blocks and transactions, while eventually forming a final serial chain.

This feature is in contrast with other well-known networks, such as Bitcoin (BTC) and Ethereum (ETH), that process blocks strictly one-by-one. The parallel processing creates economic incentives for miners that are notably different from serial chains.

Fostering entrepreneurship and innovation, Conflux elevates startups and organizations across industries and continents to generate decentralized marketplaces and digital assets for meaningful business and social impact.

Conflux also intends to surmount the problem of the unpaid smart-contract space occupation. The Conflux Protocol also introduces ongoing costs of contract maintenance which gives users an economic incentive to avoid wasting resources.[1]  


Conflux Network originated from the research lab of Turing Award recipient Dr. Andrew Yao at Tsinghua University. The Network is supervised by a global team of world-class engineers and innovative computer scientists.

The CFX cryptocurrency project and the Conflux Network is a continuous research that was built to provide a solution to the ‘blockchain trilemma’ problem with a novel Tree-Graph consensus mechanism that optimizes security, scalability, and decentralization.

In 2018, the Conflux Foundation came to bear, and a regulatory compliant fundraise was issued to build an open infrastructure based on this breakthrough consensus mechanism. Shortly after, Conflux established itself as the only state-endorsed public, permissionless blockchain in China. As respected advocates of public Blockchain infrastructure in China, Conflux is advancing the education and research in blockchain development.

In 2020, Conflux established the Tree-Graph Research Institute in partnership with the government of Shanghai and the Key Laboratory of Blockchain Infrastructure and Applications with the government of Hunan.

Conflux has also expanded its global operations and community with a diverse distributed team of more than 50 members across over four continents, including offices in Toronto, Canada, and Lagos, Nigeria.
