Blockstream solves problems that undermine trust in today's financial systems.
Imagine a technology that makes it possible to transact securely without having to place trust in a third party. Now imagine your bank, your mortgage, and all your financial assets are built with that technology. This is certainly not our present, but it could be our future.
Blockstream's primary area of innovation is in sidechains, a technology invented to extend the capabilities of Bitcoin's blockchain. Sidechains create the opportunity for new models of trust, extending and improving upon the properties of Bitcoin.
