🤌 Le Vision

Newt is dedicated and publicly committed to advancing the innovations of crypto and Web3.

Sometimes the greatest innovations come by accident; driven by the desire to learn from pushing the boundaries of what's possible. Pioneering a new space needs equal parts vision, an appetite for experimentation, and the willingness to let the cards fall where they may.

All of Web3 is an experiment. And we want to jumpstart and contribute to the breakneck pace of innovation happening in the space.

And we're not going do it in super-secret closed doors like the innovation labs of our TradTech counterparts, but rather out in the open with the community — in a crypto-native way.

We'll tinker, we'll jam, and we'll ship. We'll shitpost and vibe. And who knows — maybe we're going to build something transformational.

Not saying we're going to reach those heights, but we'll definitely have a shit ton of fun trying.

✨ Our Values

  1. We build in public. Everything we do is for the education and inspiration for the broader Web3 community.
  2. We ship. We inspire through what we build, and we hope for other builders to join us in our journey.
  3. We solve for fun. If it's not fun, it's not worth building.


Learn, have fun, and make frens along the way.
