Applied Research for Web3

Keter is building Web3.
We conduct cutting-edge research in the intersection of economics, cryptography and distributed systems.

What we do

In a nutshell - we produce research that is both theoretically exciting and with immediate practical applications. We work with startups, enterprise tech teams and government organizations to solve interesting challenges at the protocol level.

Research Areas

Our research targets both public blockchain and enterprise needs, with a special focus on scalibility, privacy and robustness. We help develop tools of all sizes to replace centralized internet infrastructure.

  • Game Theory and Mechanism Design
  • Cryptographic Protocols
  • Consensus Algorithms
  • Smart Contract Design Patterns
  • Scalibility Techniques
  • Distributed Architecture

We also support other areas of the Web3 tech stack including zero-knowledge proofs, distributed storage and multiparty computing.

Our Work

A typical project cycle lasts between 4 and 6 weeks. Deliverables mix theoretical and applied research findings. Our end goal is to provide our collaborators with insights that help meet their academic or business goals.


  • Research reports
  • Pre-launch design
  • Architecture recommendations
  • Technical documentation


  • Proof of concepts
  • Mathematical modelling
  • Simulations
