Hi Tornado Community,
We are the Harmony core team and we would like to work with the Tornado community to launch on Harmony.
We have been building the Harmony protocol since 2018, launching our sharded and proof-of-stake mainnet in 2019. Our mainnet has processed over 287 million transactions.
Harmony is 100% EVM-compatible and currently runs on 4 shards secured by 1,000 validating nodes. 900 out of 1,000 validating slots are run by the community. There are currently 160 unique validators securing the network (with similar decentralization of each shard). Overall, the network is secured by 4,548,939,747 staked ONE tokens, worth over $1.2 billion. We have performed multiple 3rd-party security audits with no security breaches to date.
Harmony is one of the fastest and most affordable EVM chains with an average of 2.5M transactions per day. By deploying Tornado on Harmony, users can take advantage of 2-second transaction finality (building towards 1-second in Q1 2022) and fees of up to 1,000 times lower than Ethereum.
Tornado has already launched on BSC, Polygon, Avalanche, and xDAI so we believe porting to Harmony, an EVM-compatible chain, will require very little effort.
We believe with Harmony’s open and fast network, plus 450K active wallets, this partnership will bring tremendous value to both sides.
Harmony is an open and fast blockchain. Our mainnet runs Ethereum applications with 2-second transaction finality and 1,000 times lower fees. Our secure bridges offer cross-chain transfers with Ethereum, Binance and 3 other chains. Build on Harmony, bridge to all chains. We are an open platform for your assets, collectibles, identity and governance.
