We have a proven track record of successfully collaborating with our clients’ business and technology teams, always driven by their specific needs. This ranges from bespoke large-scale end-to-end programs to right-sized engagements around specific offerings.
Strategy and product development
Lab49 brings together professionals with deep domain expertise and unparalleled capabilities across strategy consultancy, design, and product development. Drawing on our established industry leadership in design thinking, we support clients in the visioning and design of new products, as well as the strategy development, functional and technical architecture, backlog development, and business process design.
Data and analytics
We regularly deliver programs to consolidate an organization’s data and to restructure and optimize its management throughout the entire data lifecycle. Effective data consolidation and management serves as the platform for our primary aim of deploying analytics, artificial intelligence, and machine learning technologies in a way that can enable our clients to extract value and drive enhanced performance from their data.
DeFi, dApps, and Wallets
We work with our clients to build out an ecosystem of projects around a token or blockchain to provide enhanced utility and accelerate community and mainstream adoption. While our product and engineering teams take your product ideas and turn them into tangible POCs or MVPs. With the understanding that speed to market is critical, we never lose sight of fact the backend efficiency, speed, and scalability is the long-term foundation that will support your platform for years to come
Web 3.0 – A User Centered Approach
At Lab49 we bring together backend expertise and marry it with our award-winning designers to create compelling offerings that place the user at the center of our design efforts. It is our belief that for a platform or project to achieve long term success, it must place an emphasis on simplified user experience. Simply put, a user should not need to understand how a DeFi protocol works in order to earn passive income from it.
Building an institutionally-focused DeFi accelerator
In partnership with Swirlds Labs and the Hedera Hashgraph ecosystem, Lab49 is taking a multi-faceted approach to understand the goals and needs of institutional stakeholders, and in parallel, design and build an institutionally-focused, regulator-friendly set of DeFi components. These open-source components are meant to accelerate institutional development of DeFi platforms such as decentralized exchanges (DEXes) and lending protocols, while minimizing delivery risk.
Lab49 has delivered components such as Liquidity Pools with Automated Market Making capabilities to support Swap functionality, non-custodial wallet integration, and user-configurable slippage controls.
In addition, Lab49 is focused on institutional and regulatory needs for controlled change management of these protocols, with the development of upgradable smart contract infrastructure underpinning an end-to-end governance framework.
