About Eigen Labs

Eigen Labs is the initial developer of EigenLayer, which provides shared security as a service for blockchain projects, such as rollups, bridges and Dapps. In today's blockchain ecosystem, each service is required to be secured by its own token. The difficulty of bootstrapping new tokens often leads to too little capital to secure their services sufficiently. With EigenLayer, blockchain services can rely on Ethereum for security instead of their own token values. Stakers in the Ethereum proof-of-stake network can "re-stake" their assets with EigenLayer to secure other services and earn higher returns. These strong security guarantees, making it possible for anyone to build innovative blockchain projects without large upfront capital raises.
