Unit 410

Unit 410 is an experienced team of security, infrastructure, and cryptocurrency engineers. We empower the largest stakeholders to use their crypto in secure and novel ways. To do so, we build institutional-grade systems and solutions for secure network participation. Before Unit 410, we’ve worked at companies like Coinbase, Google, and NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory.

We’ve long believed in the potential of cryptocurrency and are excited to continue pushing forward the state of the art through industry-leading key generation, encryption, and network participation. Done right, bleeding-edge participation offers scaling, efficiency, and governance improvements over existing layer 1 protocols. But this comes with novel security challenges. Protecting online key material and managing the risk of slashing requires new architectural patterns, hardening, and methods for secure cryptographic signatures. We’re excited to continue to mature solutions across these areas and more.

We also believe that network participation is not a zero-sum game and there’s no shortage of work towards scaling crypto, so we’ll continue to liberally open sourcing the tools we’ve built.  To date we’ve shared many tools such as a Polkadot Transaction Parser, Polkadot Multisig WebApp, GCP SSH Certificate Authority, MPC for Tendermint Validators, Vault Shamir (in Go), Horcrux (CLI for Shamir), and many more.
