About Protocol Labs

Protocol Labs drives breakthroughs in computing to push humanity forward. Protocol Labs is a product-development lab, but behind the protocols and tools we build, behind the research and implementations, are passionate people, teammates, and community members. Most teams in the Protocol Labs Network are fully distributed and work remotely around the world. Engineers, researchers, and operators work in the open to improve the internet — humanity's most important technology — as we explore new advances at the intersection of many exciting fields (crypto, networks, distributed systems) and cultures (startups, research, open-source, distributed work).

DGM">DGM> is a new team in the Protocol Labs Network that believes:

  1. Decentralized ecosystems are the future of large-scale human coordination.
  2. The future of work will be focused on matching individuals with discrete work/projects rather than full-time employment.
  3. This future will enable people to be more fulfilled and will enable the accomplishment of unprecedented feats in human history."> style="font-weight: 400;">DGM’s product initiatives aim to help individual workers experience more fulfillment, autonomy, and financial freedom with the work they do, and to help decentralized organizations massively scale their impact.
