The Magmo team focuses on bringing scalability to the decentralized web. Magmo developed State Channels – a framework for ultra-low-latency payments. The Magmo team collaborates with other R&D teams across the Layer 2 ecosystem and consists of researchers and developers focused on off-chain scalability.
Magmo works closely with Filecoin to develop and integrate a high-throughput payment system and the Magmo team is a part of the Retrieval Markets Working Group and the Filecoin Virtual Machine Early Builders program.
The Identity team’s mission is to empower and enable developers to build better trust layers in their applications. They’re obsessed with standards and interoperability so that developers and product owners can focus on building next-generation applications that leverage verifiable data and decentralized identity without worrying about the implementation.
Veramo, the open-source framework built by the Identity team, is the base layer for decentralized identity and verifiable data.
The Enterprise ZK team focuses on driving the enterprise adoption of the BASELINE PROTOCOL, zero knowledge cryptography, self-sovereign identity, and distributed ledger technologies. The team collaborates with various organizations and industries to develop pilots, prototypes, implementation tools, and enablement materials for relevant technology.
Apian is a blockchain-compatible code framework and protocol for the management of shared data in highly interactive multi-user applications, games in particular. Apian, built and maintained by the gaming team within MESH R&D, is intended to support the development of peer-to-peer multiplayer games that make use of blockchain and cryptographic techniques and resources to allow them to function fairly and securely without the use of centralized game servers.
Team Zero is a MESH R&D innovation team dedicated to rapidly building products with Web3 technologies. The products are tested in real-world scenarios to gauge desirability, feasibility and viability in specific markets. The topics range from media, social networks, sports, memorabilia, ticketing, digital fabrication and civic engagement.More information about our past, current, and future projects is on their website TEAM-ZERO.DEV
