Values & How we work?

The entire crypto space doesn’t just move fast but is constantly accelerating
It’s hard building a DeFi product — it’s 24/7, 365 days a year, markets do not close, the ground beneath you can shift, assumptions can and do fail & risk of burning out is real

  • We take our product + brand very seriously

    • If we see even a small flaw in our product, we always ask ourselves – Why isn’t this perfect?

    • All members have perpetual autonomy to fix anything broken that we notice, and we do not wait for someone else to tell us what to do

  • We take extreme ownership of everything you do

    • If the team fails, everyone fails, so prioritize and execute

    • We think long-term, set big goals, and communicate with clear directions and goals to achieve them
      Everyone must understand not just what they’re doing but also why they are doing it

    • No Egos, lead by example, and mutual accountability

  • Strive for clear and simple communication – this is easier said than done but communicating the “why” of an issue is equally important as the “what

  • All meetings have an agenda, with outcomes clearly defined as tasks and call-to-actions

  • Prioritize all tasks by – what is more important for our users without compromising on any of the above goals
