What is liquality?

liquality is the translation engine of value. An open-source value discovery, matching, and exchange protocol for the creation of robust, interconnected peer to peer value networks that lead to fluidity of value without intermediation. We're starting by building a component library for developers to easily build cross blockchain functionality into their applications, and utilizing these components to build the first truly disintermediated swap network.

Our vision is to expand the right for peers to freely transact regardless of geography, class or other divides as foundational to participating in digital economies in order to create a more fair, open and equitable society.

We believe that everything we build should be Completely Accessible; Absolutely Equal; Built through Community; use Disintermediation as Enabler; Radically Transparent; Independent, Neutral; Reflexive and User-driven.

Here are some of the perks of being part of a unique organization like ConsenSys:
  • The forefront of a revolution. At ConsenSys we fundamentally believe that a next generation of technologies presents the opportunity to create a more just and equitable society.
  • A dynamic startup environment. ConsenSys is a thought leader in the blockchain space and we are absorbing a significant portion of the mindshare. This is both exciting and challenging, as we learn to scale our organization while adhering to the principles of decentralization.
  • Continuous learning. You’ll be constantly exposed to new languages, frameworks and ideas from your peers and as you work on different projects -- challenging you to stay at the top of your game.
  • Deep technical challenges. This entire ecosystem is about 10 years old. Ethereum itself is still a toddler. There is much work to be done before these platforms can scale to the order of millions or billions of users. ConsenSys is building the technology platforms that can get us to those next thresholds of scale.
