WHO IS EIGEN LABS

EigenLabs provides cryptoeconomic security as a service for blockchain projects. Our platform provides programmatic access to the trust layer of Ethereum to make components reusable, allowing builders to rely on Ethereum for security while saving time and resources typically allocated to bootstrapping their own token. EigenLabs technologies also create technical value & efficiency for Validators in Ethereum’s proof-of-stake network by enabling them to "re-stake" their assets. Re-staking allows validators to secure multiple protocols and boost rewards by providing security services to oracle networks, data availability networks and dApps running on rollups or side-chains. We’re on a mission to hyperscale ETH & dApps and increase decentralization through re-staking!
