Welcome to the Tezos Developer Documentation!

Tezos is a distributed consensus platform with meta-consensus capability. Tezos not only comes to consensus about the state of its ledger, like Bitcoin or Ethereum. It also attempts to come to consensus about how the protocol and the nodes should adapt and upgrade.

The Tezos Alpha (test) network has been live and open since February 2017.

The source code of Tezos is currently under exclusive copyright of Dynamic Ledger Solutions, and will be open sourced under the MIT license when the main network lunches.
