Many crypto transactions are slow, expensive and traceable. People value Bitcoin and other crypto assets as an investment, but not as a medium of exchange.
"Bitcoin isn't currently practical for very small micropayments."

If we can upgrade the interchangeability of our crypto assets - we can push a new wave of adoption.
A number of different concepts for improving Bitcoin and the transfer of digital assets, in general, have been developed, with the ultimate goal of achieving fast and cheap transactions, or to provide privacy. The Autobahn Network provides a perfect combination of them all.
The Autobahn Network employs the most sophisticated technologies to have emerged from the blockchain world over recent years to build a decentralized network, tailored for payments. Bitcoin, and other digital assets, can be sent to the Autobahn Network. Once they are in the network they can then be transferred quickly, privately and with low transaction fees.
In a world increasingly embracing digital currencies, we aim to secure and preserve the essential properties of traditional money. No one wants the public to be able to look into their monetary transactions, whether they are governments, companies or private people. In addition, all users of a digital asset want to pay the lowest transactional fees possible - the higher the fee, the lower the potential for widespread adoption. Last, but not least, if a future digital asset is slow in terms of transaction speed, it is not a future asset.
Most cryptocurrencies in general, and especially Bitcoin, lack the ability to be sent back and forth efficiently. Transactions are either slow, expensive and/or transparent to the general public. Solutions like the Bitcoin Lightning Network have not yet gained traction due to weaknesses in their conceptual and technical design. The technology behind the Autobahn Network has been designed from the ground up to specifically address the current challenges.
To fully appreciate high-speed, you have to experience it yourself. We have developed a fully working Testnet specifically for this purpose.
