About Us

GoKnown was founded to create a distributed ledger technology for general purpose computing, usable by anyone, anywhere, programmer or not, to create their own decentralized applications and to securely share those applications with others. Quantum-secure, time-sequenced, real-time and data-permissioned, GoKnown’s first product, MyKNOWN™, provides a no-code capability for nonprogrammers and a low-code version for business analysts and web developers.

Using decades of experience creating distributed, large-scale computing solutions, GoKnown’s founders also invented the KNOWN® platform, a distributed ledger that uses microsecond timestamps to sequence and process individual transactions across large networks at scale. Because it is designed for Web3, the KNOWN® platform integrates new and existing user applications with wireless high-speed edge computing, AI and other machine-learning technologies.

Importantly, GoKnown’s solutions are designed to meet all environmental, social and governance (ESG) sustainability requirements.
