Superlunar is a web3 research & design studio focused on the applications of decentralized technology and the practical intersection of the browser and the blockchain.

Our team works to design, sponsor, and build transparently in order to contribute to open source knowledge within the web3 community.

Research

Our research aims to promote understanding and discussion of web3 to improve the experience for technologists and users alike.

Design

Focusing on the entire lifecycle of a web3-enabled future – from mainstream user experience to development and creative tools – always with a bias towards simplicity and approachability.

Fund

We sponsor and collaborate directly on solutions to technical, sustainability, and global community projects that ensure a more democratized approach to decentralized technology.

Articles

We want to educate as much as we create by exposing our process, our results, and our own learnings. From lengthy deep dives and shorter technical notes to features on our community members and their efforts, we hope to treat the building of Superlunar as its own sort of research project and present it as such.
