Our Vision and Mission

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.

Let's create a more equal, decentralized, and trustless world together.

Creator Economy in Web3

Projects Spotlight


The massively popular decentralized publishing platform that redefines the creator economy

Matters.News is the community space where most users first enter Matterverse, providing an interface as familiar as Web2 applications but as powerful as Web3 Dapp.

To empower creators, the open-sourced platform is based on InterPlanetary File System (IPFS), a protocol and peer-to-peer network for storing and sharing data in a distributed file system.

Today, Matters.News is growing with more than 80,000 creators and 6 million monthly page views committed to user experience, quality content, and free speech.


Traveloggers are dynamic NFTs used as avatars and notebooks, where users can take turns writing content on Ethereum and trade the resulting NFT. It is the first Dapp built on Matters' "Logbook" protocol, allowing users to collaborate on digital assets sequentially. The project was a massive success with pre-order selling out within 10 minutes and now trading on Open Sea.

Non-fiction Writing Award

Matters and the Renaissance Foundation launched the Non-fiction Writing Award to support independent writers bravely writing at the frontline of the era.

The Space

The Space Project brings together NFT, Harberger Tax, and Universal Basic Income concepts in an open-source community. Launching 2022.
