Your Gateway To Uncensorable Applications

Portal combines self custody of your wealth with peer to peer financial applications

With Portal, Decentralized finance becomes uncensorable, peer to peer, and trust minimized. Just like the underlying properties of Bitcoin. Portal swaps move provable execution of cross chain contracts to layers 2 and 3, which allows the speed and liquidity of centralized alternatives, with the trust minimization guarantees of Bitcoin. Moreover, transactions are much faster and cheaper than Layer 1 transactions.

Portal DeFi Apps


Global Financial Computer

We enable peer-to-peer, decentralized, censorship-resistant applications as layers on Bitcoin.

Our goal is to create a web scale, serverless, peer-to-peer infrastructure and ecosystem with strong privacy and security guarantees.

Our Mission is to deliver freedom, one application at a time

Data and Computation Markets

Portal’s layer 2 atomic swap technology enables cheap, fast peer to peer exchanges, and can be extended to a general purpose market for data and computation. Our goal is to replace the web server model which is prone to centralization by design and architecture with a free market for data and computation. In game goods, NFTs, you name it, it can be transacted peer to peer.

Information Markets
Tiny, layer 3 contracts for data stored in a decentralized fashion replace the web server model where the fees provide resistance against censorship of information.
Computation Markets
Users are able to deploy complex programs for blinded execution by a network of peers. Portal swaps pay bonded Bitcoin when “requests for computation” are answered. Contracts assure proof of performance and payment for either party.
