The realm of projects we choose to pursue is wide. We’re open to exceptional ideas above all else, but common threads connect them. In order to fall squarely within our ikigai, they must reimagine what’s possible and inspire trust through transparency. Below are just a few of the exciting projects in the works at Ikigai.

It’s a world where creating a new DApp takes weeks, not months, due to a convenient framework that manages data persistence and state management.
