Advancing basic and applied research in cryptography, distributed systems, formal verification, and mechanism design.

Engineering & Product Icon

Engineering & Product

Engineering turns research into software; product turns software into user-experiences. We are primarily interested in general purpose technologies that expand the environment, capabilities, and security of the Cosmos ecosystem.

Social Good & Community Icon

Social Good & Community

We support communities to bring awareness to open-source, decentralized technologies. Sovereignty, security, and sustainability also means addressing fundamental social issues like human rights, education, food security, accessibility, open government, and environmental regeneration.

It’s not a one-chain-fits-all approach — sovereignty, security, and sustainability start with you.
