About us

Founded in 2017 by Kim Raath, James Aman, and Chris Georgen, Topl helps businesses and other groups change the world. Topl has created the world’s first blockchain designed for impact.

The Topl Blockchain is also the first proof-of-stake blockchain to exceed Nakamoto-consensus-level security, having expanded on Ouroboros with Taktikos, our novel staking procedure. 

A wide range of groups expand and monetize their positive impact using the Topl Blockchain. We have partners in supply chain, finance, medicine, mining, agriculture, and a growing number of other fields. The Topl Blockchain can support projects across borders and industries. 

Topl is building an impact technology economy that enables digital and sustainable transformation across value chains and empowers the monetization of impact verified on the Topl Blockchain.

Uses 10 million times less energy than early blockchains 

Scalable beyond 1,000 transactions per second

Designed to be public, permissionless, lightweight (accessible using a mobile device), affordable (fixed low transaction fees), and fully transparent.

You change the world. We prove it.

A few words from our lead team

“Topl believes that economic and social goals can be complementary instead of competitive, that profit should drive impact — and vice versa. By building a technology that enables purpose-driven businesses to maximize their profit and their impact, Topl fully embraces our motto: ‘You change the world. We prove it.’”

Kim Raath, CEO and Founder

“My involvement with Topl stems from a great personal drive to use my circumstance to work for the betterment of all and to make a lasting impact that empowers the next generation of scientists, engineers, authors, and artists who blindly set their sights above their means and are lifted by their hard work and dedication.”

James Aman, CTO and Founder

“From the beginning, I’ve believed in Topl. I’ve always believed that innovation and trial-and-error were necessary tools to solve global problems such as economic, social, and opportunity inequality. I’ve always seen Topl as part of that broader narrative. “

Chris Georgen, Chief Architect and Founder

“We are focused on building a new breed of blockchain, one focused on creating value for our customers by helping to solve real, hard-to-solve problems they face every day.“

Timothy Marx, President
