Our purpose:

We advocate for the use of decentralization to improve our world which is dominated by a handful of centralized powers. Blockchain is a means to an end.

About us:

Founded in October 2017 in Hong Kong, Forbole is an early-stage blockchain startup that is generating revenue. We are one of the leading validators and contributors in Cosmos, or call it the internet of blockchains. As of 23 Jun 2019, we have over US$30M of crypto assets under delegation. We have created Big Dipper, an award-winning block explorer for Cosmos ecosystem used by people from over 130 countries. We are also developing Desmos with Cosmos SDK, which is a chain to serve as a regional hub in Southeast Asia and South China with a specific focus on decentralized community applications.

Our style:

Our goal is to build a decentralized and international team who are true believers in decentralization and token economy. Currently we are building our early core team in Hong Kong and Taipei. We work in an agile and lean startup style. Fail mindfully and fast, then move on.

Being part of our engineering team:

You will collaborate with top-class blockchain people in ecosystems such as Cosmos, Polkadot and Solana. You will use tools and languages such as Cosmos SDK, Tendermint Core, Substrate, Go, Rust. You will co-build Desmos.
