Mainframe network is the messaging layer for the new web. This goes beyond human-to-human messaging.

Project stage


Detailed description

The Mainframe network is the messaging layer for the new web. This goes beyond human-to-human messaging. There are many use-cases and applications for reliably, privately, and securely routing data packets through the Mainframe peer-to-peer network. 

Mainframe is resistant to censorship, surveillance, and disruption. With the exception of a catastrophic asteroid event or an aggressive alien invasion, the Mainframe network is simply unstoppable. We build with five fundamental principles as our guide.


Overwhelming success also introduced new challenges. Multiple third parties mediate users’ information, and often aren’t aligned with the users’ best interests. Government surveillance and malicious agents pose additional threats. Each takes advantage of the same decades-old architecture on which the entire Internet is built. 

This threatens privacy rights and the well-being of anyone working with valuable information. In the corporate world alone, recent headlines show security breaches cause stock markets to plummet, deals to fall through, and company secrets to leak. There is little hope of fully securing these holes using existing methods.


New tools are emerging to solve these problems more effectively. Mainframe is an unstoppable communications platform providing unparalleled security, including: Data privacy: Full end-to-end and group encryption; Surveillance resistance: Node relationships can be hidden; Censorship resistance: Hidden node relationships prevent communications jamming.


Mainframe is an unstoppable communications platform that combines the desired features of today's best networking protocols and applications while also maintaining the highest level of security and user sovereignty. 

The platform consists of various protocol and transport layers incentivized by token economies, along with software development kits (SDKs) enabling easy integration with a variety of popular languages, operating systems, and devices, as well as smart contracts and oracles for token exchange and ease of interoperability with various popular blockchains.

    • Milestone 1

      This first milestone will require transitional managed infrastructure before all the protocols for fully unhosted applications become available. The managed infrastructure required for each user or organization is called a Mainframe node. 

      A Mainframe node consists of a blockchain node with a messaging layer and various services necessary for storing messages and managing contacts.

    • Milestone 2

      This release will see the beginnings of incentivization with incentivized packet routing, including node service discovery, functional swap contracts and invoicing.

    • Milestone 3

      Building a fully-decentralized communications platform. It will support full incentivization of all protocol layers, including packet routing, delivery, hodling, file storage, and data services, thus enabling Onyx to run in fully unhosted mode.
