We empower developers to create a better digital future with best-in-class tools and services.
We believe that building apps on Bitcoin is the biggest and most obvious bet in crypto today. Most of the public believes that Bitcoin is nothing more than a store of value, but we see Bitcoin as the foundation for a better internet. We believe a user-owned internet is best served if it is built on the most secure and the most decentralized blockchain. We make tools for developers to build this future with Stacks, the largest and fastest growing Web3 project on Bitcoin.
Who we are
We are a company for developers, built by developers. We take our name from the hacker “Hiro Protagonist” from Neal Stephenson’s Snow Crash, and everything we do enables developers like our namesake to innovate and put the future back in the people’s hands.
