In the transformative world of Web3, it is an individual's fundamental right to own and control their digital identity. To ensure that the individual is paramount in Web3, we are developing tools that enable everyone to engage and transact online in a safe and trusted way. Individuals are in control of what information they choose to share and with whom they choose to share it. We are developing a pioneering platform that combines the power of social experiences with Web3 Identity. This platform will provide individuals with access to interactive 3D experiences, verified communities, trusted transactions, the ability to prove ownership of their creations, and visibility and control over the data collected about them -- all designed to empower and benefit every Web3 user.

We believe that the decentralized nature of Web3 creates an opportunity for everyone to challenge the digital status quo—to own and control their identity, data, finances, creations, and future. This is the chance to get it right – to rally a movement of individuals focused on ensuring that Web3 belongs to everyone, not just to trillion-dollar companies. To fulfill this vision, we are seeking dynamic people who want to join us in leading the way to this new world.
