Coda has rebranded to Mina as of October, 2020.

You can consider Mina to be ‘A wallet that fits in your pocket’.

  • The first cryptocurrency with a succinct blockchain.
  • Blockchain compressed from 100s of GBs (as seen in existing protocols) down to kBs in size.
  • Scalable, secure, and decentralized.
  • Allows for verification of the blockchain on a mobile phone.

Mina’s blockchain always remains a constant size — the size of a few tweets, no matter how many transactions are conducted on the network.
