Combining Experience with a Passion for Web 3

Combining Experience with a Passion for Web 3

Serving customers worldwide, Figment is one of the world’s largest blockchain infrastructure and service providers.

Co-founders Matt Harrop, Lorien Gabel and Andrew Cronk have 30+ years of successfully starting and scaling internet infrastructure companies. This deep background in infrastructure and security, combined with a passion for decentralized technologies, led to the launch of Figment in 2018.

At Figment, our mission is to support the adoption, growth and long term success of the Web 3 ecosystem. This is Figment’s unique approach: we make it simple to build on the next generation of blockchain technology. We provide enterprise grade node and staking infrastructure, the Hubble Web 3 explorer, and developer tools while also actively participating in community & governance.

Figment’s physical IDC, technical operations, development and management team are based in North America.
