About Vest Technologies

At Vest, we believe that Proof-of-Stake Blockchains will be an integral part of the next generation of the internet. Vest is a platform that makes cryptocurrency staking accessible to everyone. By building tools and services for investors, coin holders, and developers alike, we hope to be a key leader of the protocol economy. We recently secured our Series A funding, are working out of a brand new office in San Francisco and have a small, hard-working core team.

Our immediate aim is to develop a marketplace for crypto-staking financial products. Vest will support both sides of the marketplace: it will enable users to seamlessly initiate, manage and trade a variety of crypto-staking products while also allowing staking service providers to offer their services to our user base. We will chiefly maintain the Vest marketplace software and may secondarily offer investment advisory and staking services. Further, we anticipate contributing to the development of staking protocols when strategically aligned.

Company Culture

We value hard work but also a work life balance. We like to go on company trips, out for company meals and hang out after work at the new office. Being a young team, having fun while we work is important to us.
