About Rift

Rift is an ecosystem of decentralized products servicing DAOs. Blockchains have given us new mechanisms to coordinate people and capital at a global scale. Rift is building the infrastructure to support the experimentation and growth of these new communities. Our first product enables a novel form of protocol owned liquidity for DAOs, establishing a sustainable financial foundation on which they can build and grow. We ran a private beta in the fall of 2021 with leading DAOs including Terra, Fantom, and Injective, capped at $50 million in deposits, that demonstrated the power and utility of our first product.

Rift is backed by leading investors including Pantera, Two Sigma Ventures, Coinbase Ventures, Spartan Group, DeFiance Capital, Jump Capital, Hashed, and ecosystem funds like Blizzard by Avalanche, Terra, Fantom, and Injective. Angel investors include Stani Kulechov of Aave, Do Kwon of Terra, Sandeep Nailwal of Polygon, and more.

If you want to work with an aggressively ambitious team, create tools that will control billions of dollars, and participate in the asymmetric financial upside of creating foundational internet infrastructure, come help us build the future of finance.
