We build lighter Ethereum clients

We build lighter Ethereum clients

Nimbus is a client implementation that strives to be as lightweight as possible in terms of resources used. This allows it to perform well on embedded systems, resource-restricted devices -- including Raspberry Pis and mobile devices -- and multi-purpose servers.

See our overview

Consensus layer (eth2)

You can use Nimbus today to both monitor the beacon chain and join the network as a fully-fledged validator.

See our guide

Execution layer (eth1)

We are working hard on a lightweight execution layer client to complement our consensus layer client.

Keep up with our progress


We're also working on the perfect client for a wallet. An ultra-light client that contributes to the network and does not require syncing.
