We Are experts
In the last decade, modular open-source technologies and a philosophy of decentralization have developed in parallel. The result is a family of system modules that when combined, form institutions more than the sum of their parts. Imagine: new prosumer governance forms like data unions and distributed energy cooperatives, or market primitives—such as bonding curves and blockchain tokens—that automate liquidity and provide real time price discovery.
Curve Labs is a team of design interventionists who research and implement these building blocks to create proofs of concept. We engage in the playful, combinational use of different modules to architect institutions that couldn’t exist before. Our team has deep experience in distributed and open-source technologies, and together, we believe we can address crucial problems of the anthropocene today ➰
Composable Data Marketplaces
Multi-sided market platforms where data providers can unionize, aggregate, and monetize the value of their individual and collective data, trustlessly trading with consumers who discover, curate and buy data.
Local, municipal, clean: the architecture of our distributed energy markets has the potential to cut costs for cooperative prosumers while managing increased stress on system operators.
Decentralized Carbon Standard & Attribution Network
Global carbon exchange requires a trustlessly settled marketplace that can be collectively governed, as well as accurate and verifiable environmental data. We aim to create distributed, transparent and secure tools that technically tackle carbon challenges.
