About Us

Redbelly was born at the University of Sydney when Prof. Vincent Gramoli set out to see if he could build a fork-proof blockchain. He could, and through a rigorous scientific development process, in partnership with CSIRO, The Redbelly Network was brought to market in 2021 with our first use-case going live in 2022.

Our Ambition

Redbelly is the bridge between our economy as it is today, and the web3 economy of the future. Redbelly is the only accountable blockchain. It is open, fast, scalable, cost effective and natively compatible with assets in regulated markets. We bring the enforceability of regulation from the real world to meet the efficiency and innovation of the digital world, seamlessly. No other blockchain can do what we can do.

“We built Redbelly to contribute to a world where everyone, everywhere has equal access to the economic infrastructure they need.”

- Vincent Gramoli, Founder & CTO
