brainbot is a Web3 venture builder and professional services provider with offices in Mainz and Berlin, Germany. Our team currently consists of 35 employees, connected through our common enthusiasm for open, secure, and reliable infrastructure. We envision a world in which decentralized peer-to-peer technology empowers people to self-organize effectively, such that they are less reliant on top down power structures and their negative side effects. Our goal is to bootstrap projects which bring these decentralized technologies to the market. Our focus is on projects which are rooted in the Ethereum ecosystem. Over the past seven years, brainbot developed several infrastructure-related projects. After contributing to the first Ethereum Python client, we developed Raiden Network, which is a scaling solution based on payment channels. Currently we are also building Shutter Network, a project that aims to prevent frontrunning on Ethereum by using a threshold cryptography-based distributed key generation (DKG) protocol. We’re also developing Beamer Bridge, which is a UX-focussed rollup-to-rollup bridge, allowing users to receive their funds immediately, without claiming periods. Furthermore, we have recently launched our venture builder, which aims to use our extensive knowledge and experience for developing more projects, and our professional services unit, which provides smart contract audits, consulting, and development services.
