Welcome to the Eiger Newsletter! For the past two years, we have been so busy building core web3 technology that we haven’t had the opportunity to sit down and tell the world about it. We have recently started publishing some articles and hope to continue publishing more, but bear with us; we are engineers who love Rust, not writers.
In the past two years, we have grown from one to almost 40 people. We have helped several clients with building core technology, but it hasn’t always been easy; during the lifetime of Eiger, we have been in a bear market, which means we have had to optimize every process since our inception. And even though it was tough, we’ve managed to build a successful operation that has been able to deliver high-quality services to our partners.
To any outsider, it might seem like things have quieted down in this industry, but the reality is that the winners of tomorrow are busy building now. Keep an eye out, because it's getting closer to dawn.
- Daren Tuzi, CEO of Eiger
