About us


A new business model for the decentralized internet.


We are TeamGreymass! Our world-class block production infrastructure ensures that your data is always secure, and available when you need it. Block rewards not only power our infrastructure, but also fuel the development of decentralized applications, services, and frameworks. These projects enrich blockchain ecosystems and deepen the engagement of creators and regular users alike.


We appreciate your consideration when selecting block producers to support with your vote.


Values

The values that guide our efforts make the blockchain more compelling to new users, businesses and outside investors. Vote for Greymass to secure your cryptocurrency investment.

Reliability

Our infrastructure is built around our enterprise-grade T3 data center in Michigan, augmented by backup data centers in Vancouver and Kentucky. In addition to maximizing uptime, we’re pursuing global node coverage for further resilience to regional outages, as well as localized attacks.

Engagement

We enhance the blockchain experience for all users with cryptocurrency wallets, block explorers, and governance tools and we empower creators with software frameworks, content creation tools, and abuse prevention services. The value these projects create drives the network effect.

Trust

We believe in democratization of blockchain policy and that fair governance improves market capitalization. We empower token-holders to directly participate in blockchain governance and represent their interests when they can’t. We open source our software and welcome security audits.

Portfolio

In addition to years of combined block production experience with Steem, Golos, Decent, Peerplays, Muse, Karma, and now EOS, our team members have led a number of projects exploring the protection, utility, and social implications of the blockchain.
