About Acala

The mission of Acala is to support and nurture the financial applications of the true decentralized web aka Web3 for a more open and fairer future. The drivers of this mission are delivering financial stability, liquidity and accessibility for all. Our core project is Acala network – a de facto financial shard and stablecoin in Polkadot’ multi-chain universe.

While Polkadot provides the scalable trust primitives, Acala has been building a DeFi shard with a suite of financial primitives including multi-collateralized stablecoin, trustless liquid staking and unified decentralized exchange to power open finance innovations and “burn” away all needs for intermediaries.

Our Values

As a close knit team of engineers working remotely from Auckland (New Zealand), Tirana (Albania), Shanghai (China), various parts of US, we are building Acala based on a core set of values we believe are in line with the tenets of web3:

* True decentralization

* More Truth Less Trust

* Empowering individuals with more autonomy

* Integrity

* Accountability

Our team came together because of a deep desire to build the foundations for a new, inclusive financial system, in direct contrast to the clear shortcomings and challenges of the current system and institutions across geographies. Our team includes some of the leading blockchain innovators, Substrate and Rust developers, full-stack dApp developers and economists.

The community we are building is therefore shaped by these values and the Acala mission. It is also fuelled by the wants and needs of the people building web3, which includes the basic needs of all humans:

* Inclusion, Care, Trust, and Respect* Guidance and Support* Friendship, Community, Real Relationships* Empowerment

What We Have Achieved:

Acala was founded in late 2019. We are an early Web3 Foundation grant recipient and is an ecosystem and education partner of W3F and Polkadot. We have delivered 4 successful live testnet candidates acquiring 50,000+ new accounts and 780,000+ transactions. Acala will be amongst the first to launch on both Kusama and Polkadot in the coming months. We have secured support from top notch backers like Polychain, Coinbase Venture, Pantera, DCG etc, and are preparing the Acala parachain launch where we will lead the way for a new type of fair and ethical network bootstrapping and launch. It’s a great opportunity to join a fast-growing start-up at an early stage 🚀
