  • evm

Background: Build-A-Bera is the capital arm/incubator for Berachain, a high-performance, EVM (Ethereum Virtual Machine) compatible, Layer 1 blockchain built on the Cosmos SDK. Berachain uses a variant of delegated Proof of Stake called Proof of Liquidity consensus to rehypothecate liquidity as security at the protocol level, aligning incentives between liquidity and security across the ecosystem.

We're a young, world-class team of builders, engineers, and executives with extensive experience across Web2 and crypto environments. We’ve raised and deployed $Bs as fund managers, won the knife fight in the orderbooks on Wall Street, and contributed to category-defining DApps and protocols. Now we’re building Berachain.

Our team combines traditional experience in building and scaling teams at technology companies like Apple, Coinbase, Microsoft, and Y-Combinator with crypto-native experience from some of DeFi’s most impactful protocols. We're all highly passionate about building useful infrastructure to bring decentralized finance to the masses. Our core engineering and founding team is based in Toronto. We’re well-funded by a group of leading digital asset investors, hedge funds, centralized exchange venture arms, and strategic angels.
