About us

We are a small team of crypto native builders, traders, and designers looking to bridge the gap between the current state of crypto and mass adoption.

We were raised on Runescape and crypto mining in our basements. We’ve ridden the waves of the volatile crypto market cycles. We’re deeply dedicated and fanatically obsessed with creating a more efficient, fair, and accessible financial system using crypto.

What is Superform?

Superform is a decentralized marketplace for crypto yields. Superform makes it possible to browse all yield opportunities on different blockchains and seamlessly deposit into them using any asset from any chain in a single transaction. We are simplifying earning yield by using cutting edge interoperability solutions and new DeFi building blocks so more people can participate in the Web3 transformation. Superform is venture backed by top investors in crypto.

There are three main components to Superform:

  1. Superform Protocol: The decentralized protocol that routes assets across chains into yield and serves as a permisionless marketplace for all yield opportunities
  2. Superform dApp: The UX layer that allows users to browse, access, and manage yield opportunities from any chain
  3. Superform API & SDK: Provides comprehensive data about yield opportunities and easy programmatic access to all yield listed on the protocol
