Mission & Key Concepts

Our purpose is to build a more decentralized world, for a freer and fairer future. We develop technology to re-engineer the way value is created and moved around the world.

Our vision is a safe and equitable global financial system that enables everyone to participate and prosper.

We are on a mission to provide the next generation of fintech innovators with the decentralized tools and technology to build a new global economy.


We provide the next generation of fintech innovators with the decentralized tools and technology to build a new global economy.

Since 2016 IOV Labs has built disruptive, decentralized blockchain technologies. We believe everyone should have access to free and fair financial services that don’t exploit, have significant barriers to entry, or restrict liberties.

Bitcoin made financial transactions without intermediaries possible for the first time, treating all users as equals. IOV Labs launched the Rootstock blockchain in 2017, enabling smart contracts on Bitcoin and making transactions on the network cheaper, faster, and more accessible. Rootstock is home to a thriving DeFi ecosystem that builds on this philosophy, serving users around the world.

In 2018, IOV Labs launched RIF to offer decentralized products and tools that enable everybody to benefit from Rootstock technology - Everyday DeFi. Built on Rootstock, RIF reduces time to market for business and developers building cutting edge solutions using blockchain technology secured by Bitcoin.
