TL;dr - FAQ


KMDLABS is a R&D test ground for Komodo (KMD) technology and Crypto-Conditions contracts (Smart Contracts). You are able to join incentivized tests that are underway or do your own work on the main KMDLabs fungible cluster. Your own chains and clusters can be added for more customized or private development. These chains can be notarized to the Bitcoin blockchain through the main Komodo(KMD) chain using Komodo’s Delayed Proof of Work (dPoW).

From gaining experience using Crypto-Conditions contracts to debugging multi-contract clusters, KMDLabs provides you with the tools, platform and resources to do so quickly and easily. This allows you to spend your time on testing, not setup.

Come and build your vision of the future.
