Who We Are
We are a team of passionate software engineers, technologists, designers and marketing professionals dedicated to driving mainstream adoption of blockchain technology.
“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.”
– Margaret Mead
Community is the real currency of decentralized applications and protocols. Our members, advisors and core team have a deep understanding of this and know that even the best projects live and die by their community. This is why we put community at the center of everything we do.
Our philosophy can be distilled into five guiding principles:
Be As You Are
Individualism and personal sovereignty should be protected at all cost, as they are the cornerstone of the human condition.
Do Work That Matters
Life is short and we believe people should spend it doing work that has tangible impact to others and themselves.
Support The Good Work
Support the good work others do and give recognition when and where it is due.
Always asking how we can do better.
Lead From Behind
Good leaders create other leaders. By empowering others we enrich our own lives and everyone grows in the process.
We are a team of builders who believe in the power of decentralized technologies to change the world.
We have tapped some of the sharpest up and coming minds in blockchain to help us traverse the most complex problems.
Christian is the Co-Founder of both BitSpace and BitGate, and has been a key figure in the blockchain community since 2011.
Jae is a recognized technical leader in the world of EOSIO software and specializes in building out blockchain infrastructure, network security and smart contracts.
Rob Konsdorf is a passionate technologist with a rich and storied history in DPOS communities and our brother from another mother.
Our members operate under a code of conduct that guides our communications and business dealings in the communities we operate in.
Be Fair, Be Balanced
We believe in the guiding principles of decentralization but do not engage in the religion, zealotry or tribalism that comes with it. Remaining protocol agnostic and understanding that there are different platforms to solve different problems is a standard of all who represent us publicly or privately.
How we treat others is often a reflection of how we see and treat ourselves. All Fractal members strive to treat others as they would like to be treated.
If any of our members have a vested interest in a project, group or entity that would represent a conflict of interest in their public representation they will proactively disclose it in the appropriate manner. Our members will always be forthcoming about any potential conflicts of interest if and when those situations present themselves.
Members have an open door policy and will work as connectors across blockchain communities. Therefore, we try to be a friend to all and enemy to none.
Say Your Peace
Fractal believes honest conflict has more social value than dishonest harmony. Our members are not afraid to speak up or speak out if necessary. We will always do so in accordance with our code of conduct, giving respect and professional dignity to those we may disagree with.
We are driven by more than a paycheck, united in a common mission.
We believe that the goals of decentralization can only be realized if people have access to this technology. Our primary mission is to advance and spread knowledge about the benefits of decentralized systems to as many people as we can.
To Inspire Purpose
We strive to inspire others through our own actions and work.
To Build Freedom
Build and protect individual sovereignty, ownership, privacy and rights through decentralization.
The common set of values among all members of Fractal can be distilled into five core values we define as our T.R.U.T.H:
Perseverance and hard work drive predictable outcomes.
Emotional intelligence is just as importance to use as technical competence. Understanding where others are coming from and having the ability to develop empathy and even humility are important behaviors in anyone we work with.
We pride ourselves on being dependable partners and stalwarts of the communities we work in. Our trustworthiness is proportional to the value of our social capital and our members take this relationship very seriously.
Honesty in our words and integrity in our work.
Lean by design, we have taken no VC or silent partners to start our business. Token holders should depend on us to appropriate our budgets accordingly:
