  • Rarify is building an API developer platform that will allow users to easily create, manage, and verify NFTs. The company aims to democratize access to NFT technology by simplifying digital asset creation, with the ultimate goal of connecting web2 with web3 technology.
  • Subspace Network lets developers run web3 apps at Internet scale. It provides a simple interface for quickly deploying multi-chain decentralized apps that auto-scale with demand. Subspace is powered by a new eco-friendly, 4th generation blockchain that enables massively scalable on-chain storage and compute, without compromising security or decentralization. It seamlessly integrates with existing blockchains, layer two protocols, and decentralized applications, allowing it to serve as a foundational infrastructure layer for the entire web3 ecosystem. Subspace will empower builders to unlock the next wave of crypto adoption by supporting NFTs, GameFi, and the Metaverse at Internet scale.
  • $ENGI is a cryptocurrency and the open-source, open-governed gig economy for coders built on the blockchain. Technology businesses accelerate their software product development by uploading funded failing assertions to a competitive network of professional freelance programmers who work quickly to write validated and performant production code. Automatic and immediate payouts and 24/7 access to global coding talent empower developers and businesses alike. Flexible, accessible, and on-demand software engineering is finally here.
  • ADAPT is a software toolkit that enables easy development of distributed applications that store and manage sensitive data in a secure fashion. Its mission is to decentralize data storage for web3 and SaaS software, and to enable fast and easy development of authentication and key sharing tools, as well as to provide a mechanism for decentralization of web3 UIs.
  • SkillWallet is the first protocol enabling a truly permissionless, self-sovereign, portable identity. It’s an identity system based on each individual’s skills and contributions, rather than their personal data — and it’s designed to bind together the individuals with the communities they join and reward them based on their participation.
  • Superdao is an all-in-one DAO platform that makes it easy to start and operate decentralized autonomous organizations. With Superdao, you can create a DAO in one click; generate smart contracts for NFTs and tokens; use built-in member directory, treasury dashboard, newsfeed, and contributor compensation system; and do more with third-party apps.
  • Passage Protocol is building the membership layer for web3 communities. One looming problem, despite the explosion of large communities (10k PFPs, DAOs, social tokens, brands looking to extend into web3) standing up seemingly overnight, is member management. Even successful projects suffer from low engagement, poor retention, and limited accessibility for new members — not only an impediment to growth, but also antithetical to the ethos of web3. Passage addresses these issues by providing building blocks for projects to quickly deploy performant, long-lasting web3 relationship management and loyalty rewards programming.
  • Arcade is a platform that allows the owners of nonfungible tokens to use them as collateral for loans. The platform is a peer-to-peer marketplace that connects NFT owners interested in receiving loans with lenders, which can underwrite fixed-rate term loans collateralized by borrowers’ NFTs on Ethereum. This all happens on-chain with the loan agreement locked in a smart contract through a verifiable NFT.
  • Alpine is building a cross-chain asset management protocol and user-friendly dApp to make DeFi easier, more accessible, and more cost effective for users. Although the DeFi space has taken off in recent years, most solutions remain difficult to access and expensive, and they lack reliable investment advisory and analytics capabilities for non-crypto native users. Alpine is hoping to marry web3 and Tradfi infrastructure to be a “Robinhood-like” solution for DeFi.
  • Robinland is a financial technology start-up bridging DeFi liquidity into the $1 trillion private credit market underserved by the traditional banking sector. By identifying, sourcing and onboarding high quality assets from traditional financial markets, Robinland provides a hassle-free way for DeFi protocols to stabilize their treasury, for borrowers in real world finance to access cheaper and faster financing, and for retail investors to park stablecoins for sustainable and steady yield. The team consists of real estate industry veterans, crypto-native coders, and lawyers fluent in US security laws with 20+ years combined experience in their respective areas. The company has secured conditional partnership with MakerDAO, the “European Central Bank” of crypto, and Crowdfunz, a real estate PE in NYC with 6 years of track record and 0 default.
  • Sender is creating a friendly NEAR-based non-custodial wallet built for DeFi and NFTs. Today, Sender offers users NEAR native asset management, in-wallet staking, integration of NFTs, instant swaps, implicit account creation, and optimized asset security. This offering also has the potential to benefit the broader web3 ecosystem by delivering accessible, secure wallet experiences to users to achieve mainstream adoption of web3. Sender is positioned to be the defacto wallet on NEAR before expanding into a cross-chain offering.
  • Frame is building a privacy-focused wallet that allows users to manage their accounts/tokens and seamlessly/securely connect to any dapp. Crypto wallets keep private keys, the passwords that give users access to their cryptocurrencies, safe and accessible, allowing users to host, send, and receive funds.
  • Genopets is the world’s first Free-to-Play, Move-to-Earn NFT game on Solana that makes it fun and rewarding to live an active lifestyle. Genopets combines user’s step data from their mobile device with blockchain Play-to-Earn economics so players can earn crypto for taking action in real life as they explore the Genoverse evolving and battling their Genopet.
  • Comm is an open source, E2E-encrypted Discord alternative targeted at DAOs. The company is focused on asynchronous, structured communication for groups that are struggling to coordinate and collaborate on Discord. Comm’s core technological innovation is the keyserver, which is basically a federated application backend. Keyservers allow web3 apps to reach feature parity with web2 on search, backup, and discovery. Comm’s long-term goal is to replace the centralized cloud backends of web2 with a federated network of user-owned keyservers.
