About Sei

The First Layer 1 Specialized for Trading

What is Sei?

Sei is an open-source Layer 1 blockchain specialized for trading, optimizing every layer of the stack to offer the best infrastructure for trading apps of all types. Leveraging a novel consensus and technical breakthroughs, Sei is the fastest blockchain in existence.

The Sei Vision

The destination for all on-chain trading apps — across gaming, NFTs and DeFi

What problem does Sei solve?

Exchanging digital assets is the bedrock of crypto — across DeFi, NFT marketplaces and GameFi.

Despite having the clearest product-market fit among all types of apps in crypto, trading apps face a major scaling problem on Layer 1s today. Exchanges face the Exchange Trilemma: between decentralization, scalability and capital efficiency, they cannot achieve all three.

Sei addresses the DEX scalability problem by building the first Layer 1 specialized for trading, optimizing every layer of the stack to offer the best infrastructure for trading apps.

What Sei offers

  1. Sei is the fastest chain to finality — point blank — with a lower bound of 300ms
  2. Twin-turbo consensus — achieves industry-leading performance
  3. One of the only chains to conduct market-based parallelization
  4. Native order matching engine that exchange teams can leverage
  5. Frontrunning protection — combats malicious frontrunning that is rampant in other ecosystems

The combination of these optimizations make Sei the haven for the top trading apps globally. For more detailed information on technical innovations, please read the whitepaper.
