About Us

Current wallet software for organizations is built around financial operations, not complex usage scenarios. This leads to organizations having multiple wallet providers for various purposes, each with varying levels of security/governance and management capabilities. This complexity increases drastically with organization size.

Narval is the unified wallet governance platform for organizations.

We provide the most advanced policy engine to govern which actions an individual, partner, or service provider can perform with organization-owned wallets and digital assets. We then abstract all the key management/custody models into a unified management console, and expose an API for integrating with the rest of an organization’s web3 tooling stack.

Our Vision

We’ve entered the third era of the internet - an internet owned by the builders and the users. We believe web3 matters. Blockchains, at their core, enable digital property rights, and NFTs are the core technical primitive for unique (non-fungible) digital property.

  • We are moving from the early days of cryptocurrency - focused on crypto trading - to a world of web3 usage, where digital property is embedded with utility.
  • Organizations have formed, and will increasingly form, around the ownership and usage of NFTs and other digital assets.
  • In the future, every organization will own and utilize digital assets, in the way that every organization owns and utilizes physical assets.
