At first, there was Bitcoin, out of entropy soup of the greater All. Then, there was Ethereum, which was created in the likeness of Bitcoin, but made Turing complete.
Among these were Tendermint and Cosmos to engineer robust PoS and IBC. Then came Gno upon Cosmos and there spring forth Gnoland, simulated by the Gnomes of the Greater Resistance.
Gno is an interpreted and fully-deterministic implementation of the Go programming language, designed to build succinct and composable smart contracts. The first blockchain to use it is Gno.land, a Proof of Contribution-based chain, backed by a variation of the Tendermint consensus engine.

gnokeyto interact with the chain from your command line.
If you have already played around with the website, use our Getting Started guide to learn how to write and deploy your first smart contract. No local set-up required!
You can find out more existing tools & documentation for Gno on our awesome-gno repository. We look forward to seeing your first PR!
