OUR VALUES

FOCUS ON ONE THING AND BE THE BEST
Own more than just your work

We are each accountable for our own actions and decisions, but we see how they tie back to our collective success.  As we focus on building value together, there is no part of our business that is outside of the scope of our respective responsibilities.

Two use-cases is enough

The speed at which we are able to innovate and iterate is essential to our business. For this reason, we take smart risks without the need for exhaustive study.  We are open to failure because recovery is almost always possible.

Ask as often as you answer

We each bring a different level of expertise to the table, but we are chasing BIG new ideas and it is important to recognize that we can lead and learn at the same time.

Value dissent, execute as one

Silent disagreement is as unproductive as premature consensus, and we have an obligation to respectfully challenge one another.  Once a decision has been made, everyone commits to its success.

Transparency and facts above all

More access to information means better more impactful decisions, so we work hard to share information broadly and deliberately, and we place a high value on facts and on a scientific approach to ascertaining them.

THE TEAM

Our team members have backgrounds in finance, technology, and consumer products; we count alumni from PDT Partners, Two Sigma, Tower Research Capital, and GTS among our ranks. We are a group of entrepreneurs, engineers, and quantitative researchers, and we are believers in blockchain-based technology and the future of a token economy.
