Chia 3 Year Mainnet Anniversary: A Look Back and Look Ahead

The genesis block of the Chia blockchain began March 19, 2021. In the three years since, Chia has achieved many things that no other blockchain has been able to. There have also been challenges and tribulations along the way.

Looking back

Much has happened in the last three years. In the past year alone, we’ve seen highs of CAD Trust launch and retired tokenized carbon credits on-chain, and the lows of Chia Network’s financial challenges.
