About Figment
Figment, a VC funded technology startup, is your key to Web 3: stake tokens, build applications, and participate in blockchain governance.

The founding team has over two+ decades started, built, and scaled four internet infrastructure related businesses. This deep experience in IP networking, data centers, cloud security, and databases combined with our passion for decentralization lead us to starting Figment Networks.

We want to build an organization that on the one hand provides needed infrastructure & software to blockchain networks/communities, and on the other hand serves the needs of institutional and large token holders. To do this we are focusing on operational best practices (including security), software tools, research, and legal/regulatory compliance.

Our data center and technical operations are based in Toronto, Canada and we are building a decentralized organization with team across North America, Western Europe, and Southeast Asia.
