Common lets you build community on your own terms. We create open spaces for coordination, where decisions are made transparently and any member can participate in improving their organization.

Our initial product is widely used by the crypto community—over 2000 web3 projects and DAOs collectively worth over $50 billion use Common as a hub to collaborate and scale their community. Projects include 1inch, Stargate Finance, Stargaze, Element Finance, and many, many more. We support free and decentralized forms of expression and governance via chat messages, discussion threads, and formal votes. We hope our tools facilitate the community creation of culture, technology, and lasting public works. We’re always looking for like-minded people to join us.

We’ve closed our Series A funding, with total funding over $20m, and are gearing up for the next stage of growth for our company, which will see many more features—from a Discord bot to chat reactions—launch on Common.
