web3 ventures.

We envision a world in which decentralized peer-to-peer technology empowers people to self-organize effectively so they are less reliant on top-down power structures and their negative side effects.

Technology needs to serve humans.
Directly and positively.
Seeding & growing ventures is our contribution.

Learn how our web3 ventures create value,  and what critical problems we solve for the Ethereum ecosystem and its users.

Helping web3 users
to transact securely and privately.

Explore our ventures & projects that help its users and ecosystem.

Ethereum and other EVM blockchains are constantly changing. Why? Innovations happen daily as builders see new opportunities and challenges they want to tackle.

With new innovative solutions, developers and builders introduce additional risks and problems. What kind of problems? We are witnessing smart contract hacks, wallet drains and front-running everyday. 

We are here to contribute with our ventures and projects, to solve these problems and to reduce the risks for web3 end-users.


Enabling users to move digital assets across rollups fast and securely.

Rollups are scaling solutions to transfer digital assets from one owner to another owner quickly within the same rollup.

Beamer offers an intuitive and seamless bridge solution that specializes in cross-rollup transfers. This helps asset owners to transfer their asset from one rollup to other EVM compatible rollups.

The goal is to provide a smooth user experience to make Ethereum more accessible. Beamer is a community-driven open-source project and is based on collaborative efforts.

Protecting users from malicious MEV and

Front-running and malicious Maximal Extractable Value (MEV) is a burden for web3 users. It is hidden behind your wallet activities and you don’t know whether a bot, miner or validator extracted value from your transaction.

Shutter is our contribution to reduce front-running and MEV for the ecosystem and its users by using a threshold cryptography-based distributed key generation (DKG) protocol.

The DKG protocol can be implemented in different use cases where commit and reveal schemes can be applied. Rolling Shutter and Shutter Governance are two use cases.

Rolling Shutter

MEV protection for rollups on Ethereum. It implements the DKG scheme into sequencer flow in order to protect all dapps deployed on the rollup. This increases censorship resistance and potentially latency properties.

Shutter Governance

Snapshot implemented Shutter Governance and offers shielded voting for Ethereum in the form of partial privacy using threshold encryption. Learn more about shielded voting and our collaboration with Snapshot.

Innovating and exploring alternative payment systems.


People Powered Money

The Trustlines Network is a community-driven project that empowers people to create their own money and access digital payments. We call it People Powered Money.

To enable People Powered Money, we are building a universally accessible payment system. It allows people to make and receive payments without any intermediaries, lessening the burden of linking a bank account or depositing any money upfront.

Fast transfers for Ethereum

The Raiden Network is a community-driven project that offers off-chain, near-instant, low-fee and scalable transactions. It’s complementary to the Ethereum blockchain and works with any ERC20 compatible token.

The Raiden project is work in progress. Its goal is to research state channel technology, define protocols and develop reference implementations.

From on-chain
data analytics to infrastructure provider.

AnyBlock Analytics is a venture offering developers access to data from Ethereum via a search index available via an API that can execute queries written with the Elasticsearch Query-DSL.

The venture provides additional consulting, blockchain development and infrastructure services.

In November 2021 AnyBlock Analytics was acquired by Blockdaemon.

Contribution, Community & Collaboration.

As a web3 pioneer, we believe collaborative experiments and research help us and the ecosystem to explore new paths to solve hard problems.

It is a collaborative effort increasing knowledge and expertise in the complex web3 field – for all parties.

Research: Shutterized Beacon Chain

Ethresearch is a semi-public forum for participating in Ethereum’s research efforts. We co-submitted our research work how MEV can be solved on the Layer-1 beacon chain.

The Merge data challenge

The Ethereum Foundation called data scientists, data engineers, data visualizers, developers, and anyone interested in digging into Ethereum data for a challenge.

Swapping PoWETH after The Merge

We developed PoWDump with partners helping users to swap PoWETH to ETH. Within 1 month more than $1,000,000 worth of ETH went into users’ wallet.

Often times we find joy and fun as we strive in complexity!

In some cases, a small idea within the research work turns into a venture.

Building web3 ventures with
RELIABLE partners.

Our reliable partners and contributors make our ventures complete.
Web3 is about collaboration, connections and communities.
