About

Company summary

Matters Lab was established in 2018, with the mission to create a freer and fairer creator ecosystem through the next evolution of the Internet, Web3. Our initiatives include using decentralization tools to protect digital rights, designing a self-governing system and community, and inventing models for a new creator economy.

Matters.News
is the first entrance of Matters Lab. It is the largest open-source decentralized publishing platform in the Web3 world with more than 80,000 content creators. Traveloggers is the second entrance and a social co-creation NFT that aims to explore the creator economy and co-creation model. We will be launching our third project, The Space, towards governing public space with Radical Market. 

In 2019, Matters was selected for one of the largest accelerators in Taiwan and Southeast Asia, AppWorks. In 2020, Matters received the Google News Initiative Innovation Challenge Award, was selected as one of the Media-X projects supported by Yifang Capital and Xu Foundation, and received the “Grant for the Web” flagship grant, Coil Foundation, and Mozilla support. Last year, we joined the LongHashX Web3 Accelerator project and closed millions dollar Pre-A round of investment.

Starting from the community, Matters is exploring the next generation of distributed content ecosystems, which need more solid product and technology exploration and faster iteration. We invite team members with the same vision to join us!
