More About 3Box

WHO WE ARE

We are small and fast, incredibly curious and laser-focused, community-oriented and individually driven. We have previously founded tech startups, authored books on identity, won awards for outstanding products, advised F100 CEOs, and much more. We believe greatness comes from happy, interested, diverse teams. We've lived in dozens of different countries (and on a sailboat), dropped out of college, finished college, captained varsity athletic teams, attended 10-day meditation retreats, run marathons, cycled thousands of miles per year, and built houses.


WHY WE WORK TOGETHER

We are all committed to building a more empowering web where data is secure, interactions are trustworthy, and relationships are the basis of connection rather than platform's network effects. Online experiences can be delightful and integrated without being creepy or dangerous. We believe we are building Web 3.0 - a few perspectives on what that means to us:

Brad Burnham's investment thesis

Paradigm shifts for the decentralized Web

Protocols, Not Platforms: A Technological Approach to Free Speech


WHAT WE'RE BUILDING

Protocols: for identity, user-centric data, sharing and access control, and interoperable data services

Products: SDKs and APIs for apps + wallets to integrate distributed identity, data storage, and social features. Think of it as decentralized firebase, to build fully featured apps with no backend

Data Network: node software and networking for a distributed set of infrastructure providers
