Accelerating the world's transition to Web3

Our goal is simple: to grow Web3 to 1 billion users by 2025.

To do so, we're uniting the top builders and industry experts within the space.


The DA was founded in March 2020 by a team of crypto veterans in partnership with top tier trading and venture firms.

We saw the promise that DeFi held very early. We started by mentoring DeFi protocols and helping them partner with liquidity providers and market makers.

Ecosystems saw the premise of the DeFi Alliance and started supporting our founders. In Q2/2021 Coinbase joined the DeFi Alliance ahead of its public listing.

Since then the DeFi Alliance has grown exponentially. In Q3/2021 we experimented with expanding our scope to include games. The success of this cohort, DAA6, was the spark for our migration to a fully fledged Web 3 accelerator.

Today we've built the most founder-friendly Web3 network. We're humbled by the quality and enthusiasm of builders that joined our movement.

They support each other every day. And they're building technology that will impact the lives of billions of people.


Web3 will dramatically change the lives of people all over the world.

It allows for lower costs, better coordination and ownership, and novel use cases.

Everyone will benefit from Web3 products. The same way they did by accessing the internet and mobile phones.

Our mission is thus simple: we were founded to accelerate this transition.


Focus on Founders

Builders drive technology shifts. Whenever facing a difficult decision, we ask ourselves “what is best for founders?” We go above and beyond for founders.

Deliver Impact

We focus on the largest challenges within our company and industry. We measure success not by hours worked but by impact delivered.

Open to Innovation

We are certain about the potential of open economic systems but don't know how the future will take shape. We therefore strive to stay on the edge of innovation.

Leverage Community

Collaboration between long-term-oriented participants is fundamental to success in Web 3. We leverage our impact by leveraging community.


A diverse team of former founders, engineers, product specialists, venture investors and traders.

We all share a passion for Web3 and for supporting fellow startup founders.
