Block8 is Australia’s leading blockchain venture studio. We partner with startups, enterprise and government to bring a professional product management and technical development capability that take ideas from zero to one. Founded in 2016, Block8 has grown to 40 people across two countries. Our team has deep expertise in product management, blockchain and distributed ledger technologies, incentive design, economics and full stack development.
Block8 has delivered Australia’s most successful and innovative blockchain ventures which have created over A$250m in enterprise value. Our portfolio spans fintech, regtech, proptech, energy and gaming. Notably, in 2018, we designed and built a decentralized finance product called Havven (Synthetix) which raised A$39m and remains Australia’s largest blockchain capital raise. More recently, our ventures have tokenised unlisted equities and residential mortgage-backed securities (RMBS), as well as developed blockchain-based industry applications within residential tenancy, payments and identity.
