We believe in your right to opt out of centralized institutions, tech, and culture. We're creators, leaders, and free-thinkers building and funding values-aligned projects in bitcoin and freedom tech.
Decentralization. Sovereignty. Privacy. Freedom.
Culturally, financially and governmentally, outside forces control our lives. Credit ratings and central banking underscore that we are not the sole owner of our money or identities. Our work facilitates a focus shift: from an external locus of control to internal. From things happen to me, to I decide which parts of culture, business and finance I participate in.
When institutions own the pieces of information that make up how we’re qualified and quantified as players in the game of society, unsavory stuff can happen. Gathered in one place, that data is easily breached. Controlled by corporations, it’s easily corrupted. We believe that the tallies adding up to your life belong to you—outside of today's coordinated, centrally controlled systems.
We’re the question-askers. Does unchallenged mean indestructible? Does "too big to fail" mean too risky to demolish? Each felled tree makes room for new growth. Our creed: Break it. Make it. Change something big in the process.
There’s something tremendously powerful at the intersection of experience and appetite for risk: confidence to be bold. The ability to make meaningful decisions that change minds.
