About

SkillZ was founded in Paris by blockchain passionates who discovered blockchain technology in 2016.

We first decided to develop blockchain products for various industries – banking, supply chain, catering – before realising investors and builders needed a platform to connect to blockchain nodes.

This is why today we focus on offering a Staking As A Service platform, enabling anyone to stake assets – manually or via API – on several proof of stake blockchains. We’d be delighted to tell you more about our offering and how we could work together.

Our Vision

We believe the world’s financial system is being rebuilt on blockchains.

Blockchains enable censorship-resistant money accessible to anyone with an internet connection, and composable building blocks for builders to innovate on permissionlessly. Ultimately we believe this will create a better world, with more access to opportunity, fewer rent-seeking middle-men, and fewer hidden systemic risks. 

Staking is a core primitive of this new world: by enabling asset owners to use their stake to secure the network and earn a yield doing so, staking preserves decentralisation and provides returns. It is the Internet bond.
