Introducing Moonsong Labs: Blending Venture Studio with Protocol Engineering Expertise

In a world  where technology constantly transforms, we are excited to introduce Moonsong Labs – a new entity offering a venture studio paired with engineering services that come together to shape today’s innovations while forecasting tomorrow’s breakthroughs.  At Moonsong labs, our Venture Studio and Engineering expertise unite to fuel a diverse range of projects, from internal ventures to external partnerships, all while providing top-tier protocol engineering services and ardently championing the forthcoming wave of innovation.

Harnessing the transformative potential of Web3, Moonsong Labs specializes in blockchain, Web3 protocol development. Web3 represents more than just a technological evolution; it signifies the dawning of a new era of interaction. Our endeavors in crafting open-source software aim to nurture an ecosystem that champions transparency, decentralizes power, and fosters innovative human coordination. 

Moonsong Labs acts as a bridge, connecting visionary concepts with practical, tangible solutions.  Guided by our mission– “To build software that enables more transparent, efficient, and decentralized forms of human coordination” – we are committed to providing a seamless transition between the user-friendly nature of  Web2 and the revolutionary capabilities of Web3.

At the heart of Moonsong Labs is a dedicated team led by Moonbeam Founder Derek Yoo, complemented by key members, each of whom brings a unique perspective of Web3 experience drawn from hands-on roles in successful Web3 launches. Our collective belief in Web3 as a powerful catalyst for change drives us to create opportunities for users to engage in software-native value based interactions. 

The Moonsong – Moonbeam Symbiosis

As a core contributor to the Moonbeam protocol, Moonsong Labs amplifies the growth and diversification of the ecosystem surrounding Moonbeam. This expansion furthers the ecosystem’s resilience, decentralization, and robustness. The vision that Moonbeam represented – of being an interoperable L1 – sits at the heart of Moonsong’s broader ambition – an interoperable ecosystem akin to a decentralized AWS cloud developer experience. 

The long-term dream has been to craft a decentralized counterpart to the AWS cloud—a rich tapestry of specialized services weaving together to curate novel applications. This is where Moonsong Lab’s  Venture Studio comes into play. By creating infrastructure tools and projects, many complementary to Moonbeam, Moonsong Labs helps make this vision a reality.

Acting as a hub for cross-chain use cases, Moonbeam embodies the centralized focus of this grand vision. Moonsong Labs will not only advance Moonbeam but will also deepen its understanding of key technologies like Rust, Substrate and ZK.  With this foundation, we hope to usher in a paradigm of transparent, democratized, and efficient value interactions in Web3 at large.

Addressing the Web3 Challenge

Blockchain represents a radical shift from traditional mechanisms—a decentralized, transparent method of value transfer that democratizes systems and ushers in an innovative global ecosystem. The transition from Web2 to Web3 is hampered by accessibility and user-friendliness issues. 

Moonsong Labs confronts this challenge head-on, empowering developers to effortlessly craft secure, scalable, and user-centric Web3 applications. Beyond just development, we’re tackling the user experience infrastructure problem, ensuring the broad adoption of blockchain technologies and enabling seamless value transfer sans intermediaries.

Interoperability is not just a term; it’s the cornerstone of a cohesive Web3 and the guiding light for Moonsong Labs.  Bridging diverse blockchains, interoperability ensures resilience, efficiency, and user-friendliness, unlocking the immense potential of the Web3 sphere.


Through our Venture Studio and Engineering Services, we strive to realize a decentralized AWS experience, crafting infrastructure tools and projects that seamlessly complement Moonbeam and redefine the developer experience. Our commitment to structuring ourselves around Moonbeam emphasizes the ecosystem’s growth and further decentralization. With this foundation, we hope to usher in a paradigm of transparent, democratized, and efficient value interactions to continue building in Web3.
