Blockchain Researcher / Research Engineer

Story Protocol, Inc.


About Story ProtocolStory Protocol aims to grow the creativity of the internet
The internet has introduced revolutionary new methods of developing and distributing creative work: endless remixing, participatory franchises, and AI generated content
However, our current intellectual property infrastructure works against the openness of the internet instead of embracing it
Story Protocol is building an IP infrastructure optimized for the internet era
Story Protocol aims to address these crucial requirements
Our mission is to unleash the creativity of the internet by building the native IP infrastructure layer of the web
Our open IP repository enables creative IPs β€” prose, images, audio, and more β€” to record their evolutionary journey from inception through the endless combinatorics of digital co-creation
Beyond tracking the provenance and attribution of IP as it grows, we also provide modules that power frictionless composability, allowing anyone to contribute to an IP and to capture the value of that contribution
Just as Git revolutionized the development of open source software by encompassing the networked evolution of code, Story Protocol is transforming the development of creative IP
Our team features deep expertise in media, tech, and business
Founding team members are successful serial entrepreneurs
We are backed by top VCs globally
Now, we’re looking for stellar researchers on our journey to usher in the next era of IP business –– we invite you to join us
