Grassroots. Community-run. VC-free. Decentralization maximalist.

Bao is a community of anons intent on transforming how we leverage and interact with data. Our onchain derivatives take advantage of the decentralization, transparency and security that blockchain allows, moving financial power from institutions to individuals.

  • VC Free

    During our distribution phase, Bao raised funds from over 200 DeFi communities, freeing us from the shackles of Venture Capitalists primarily interested in extracting value.

  • Communty Run

    We are run by our community, which controls all aspects of the project, from its core team and products to revenue distribution and tokenomics.

  • Grassroots

    Anyone can contribute to Bao's success. All of the core team were regular community members at one time. We are focused on mass participation from anyone who supports our mission.

  • Decentralization Maximalist

    Our products are designed with decentralization in mind. Without central points of failure, we are more resilient, censorship resistant, transparent, accessable, and adaptable.
