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 is the Programmable IP layer built for the age of AI. We transform IP into networks that transcend mediums and platforms, unlocking global creativity and liquidity.
