About Story Protocol

Story Protocol aims to grow the creativity of the internet. The internet has introduced revolutionary new methods of developing and distributing creative work: endless remixing, participatory franchises, and AI generated content. However, our current intellectual property infrastructure works against the openness of the internet instead of embracing it. Story Protocol is building an IP infrastructure optimized for the internet era.

Story Protocol aims to address these crucial requirements. Our mission is to unleash the creativity of the internet by building the native IP infrastructure layer of the web.

Our open IP repository enables creative IPs — prose, images, audio, and more — to record their evolutionary journey from inception through the endless combinatorics of digital co-creation. Beyond tracking the provenance and attribution of IP as it grows, we also provide modules that power frictionless composability, allowing anyone to contribute to an IP and to capture the value of that contribution.

Just as Git revolutionized the development of open source software by encompassing the networked evolution of code, Story Protocol is transforming the development of creative IP.

Our team features deep expertise in media, tech, and business. Founding team members are successful serial entrepreneurs. We are fortunate to have raised a $54m Series A led by a16z.
