We design & build core infrastructure for the decentralized web
Our collective financial and social infrastructure should be open source, peer-to-peer, and private by default. EQ Labs is an R&D organization advancing blockchains and related systems.
"The Equilibrium team has worked diligently with our engineering team to architect complex solutions and bring them to production launch. Our team looks forward to working with Equilibrium to advance the state of the art in cryptography with precision and performance."
"The Equilibrium Labs team behind Rust-IPFS are making great progress and adding significant improvements to the IPFS ecosystem. Rust-IPFS is already attracting its first set of early users and stakeholders, and is well poised to build a great, engaged community. Very excited to see them continue growing and iterating!"

Key imperatives for the decentralized web
Novel infrastructure with complex designs often give rise to new bugs, weaknesses, and attack vectors that are difficult to identify.
Current blockchains are still vastly behind modern computing standards. No existing protocols are even close to handling internet-scale transaction volumes.
Most real-world applications require privacy. Recent advancements are paving the way for private data & computation, but the designs still leave room for improvement.
Compared to traditional web2 backend services, the experience of developing web3 protocols is still overwhelmingly constrained.
Today's infrastructure seems increasingly scattered. Safe interoperability - let alone atomic composability - between different systems is yet to be solved.
A large share of computational resources are not spent on business logic but on consensus and p2p. A more efficient use of energy & computational resources is vital.
