Build on Go Ethereum the Easy Way

Kaleido simplifies Go Ethereum (or Geth) development, making it possible to create powerful blockchain networks and digital assets in a fraction of the time, at a fraction of the cost.
What it is

The Most Powerful, Flexible Platform for Go Ethereum Development

What It Is

The go-ethereum Open Source project, or ‘Geth’, is the most popular Ethereum client backing the main-net. Kaleido contributes actively to the Geth project, and has a depth of experience running and maintaining thousands of chains, including critical production workloads.

Built to sustain the security requirements of a large network of anonymous participants, and hardened through thousands of deployments running worldwide for a number of years, it provides a rugged and proven solution for running a private blockchain network.

Clique/POA Consensus

Proof of authority based consensus. Instead of miners racing to find a solution to a difficult problem, authorized signers create new blocks in a synchronized manner.

Open Source

Community driven and used by numerous organizations and individuals.


We provide three t-shirt sizes when you deploy a node, with different transaction pool, memory and CPU limitations – ready for the demands of a production permissioned network.

How it works

How it Works

Go Ethereum, Simplified

In Kaleido we configure G- Ethereum optimized for a permissioned private chain. Go Ethereum, or Geth, is one of the Ethereum implementations. It has been running in the public Ethereum networks, both the Mainnet and testnet Rinkeby, since early 2015. Go Ethereum is the most popular implementation in terms of the number of nodes participating in the Mainnet and it also powers the popular test net, Rinkeby.

The Go Ethereum binary used inside Kaleido is under the GPL v3.0 license. The source code is supported by the Ethereum community and maintained by a group of core Ethereum developers including one of the original Ethereum founders, Jeffrey Wilcke, as well as Péter Szilágyi.

For consensus algorithms, G- Ethereum supports Proof-of-Work which is appropriate when running in the Mainnet, and clique Proof-of-Authority, which is more suitable for a by-invitation-only, or permissioned, blockchain. All Go Ethereum nodes running inside Kaleido are configured to be full nodes, so they all have the full blockchain maintained locally and are able to validate blocks and state transitions.
