Dispersion Capital is driving toward the “Dispersion Economy,” an evolution of the decentralized economy. For decentralized tech to become as useful and widespread as the internet, it needs to be possible for developers to build functional, accessible, and scalable applications.
What does this look like? It looks like a constellation of applications, services, platforms, companies, and DAOs that are decentralized in their operations AND dispersed evenly throughout the ecosystem. No more blockchain lock-in. Available and usable everywhere, to everyone. This is the dispersion of blockchain’s game-changing decentralization. The Dispersion Economy is powered by a world where the tech is scalable, the access is decentralized, and its impact is dispersed worldwide.
Dispersion Capital is finding and funding the fundamental tech layers to make this future possible. Strictly builder and developer-focused, its investments will ensure they have the tools to deploy on dispersed, decentralized infrastructures.
