About Parachute

Parachute was founded by a group of friends who wanted to change how people interact with cryptocurrency. Today, we're inspired to build amazing tools that help people use it in their daily lives. We believe cryptocurrency should be fun, easy, and social. Everything we do aims to make this happen. We're a traditional startup and a WeWork Labs company. Our mission is to bring cryptocurrency into the mainstream over the next 10 years.
