Metastate (aka Cryptium Labs) is a multi-network research and engineering team. We deploy cutting-edge research to improve the capability and efficiency of distributed protocols. We envision a future proof-of-stake blockchain ecosystem without the externalities or limitations of proof-of-work, where heterogeneous blockchains serving a wide variety of application use-cases coexist and interoperate seamlessly. More information about areas of R&D, past and current work are available in our official website: https://metastate.ch Cryptium Labs started as a proof-of-stake validator with focus on security. We currently operate a live Tezos baker, Cosmos, IrisNetwork, and run testnets on Polkadot and NuCypher. We envision a secure, interoperable, and heterogenous blockchain ecosystem, and plan to help facilitate this by skeptically evaluating, continuously monitoring, and frequently upgrading existing blockchain protocols.
