RabbitHole is paving the way for web3 users to become web3 contributors. 

In a space of immense speculation and infinite noise, RabbitHole guides users through web3, equipping them with on-chain credentials that prove the knowledge they’ve gained. RabbitHole uses these credentials to help top crypto projects find the best participants for their protocol. 

As users build their on-chain credentials, RabbitHole will become the best place to find contributors and discover work in web3. 

RabbitHole is backed by top crypto investors and traditional investors alike, including Electric Capital, Greylock, TCG, Chapter One, and more.
