Let’s build
the web of Web3

The Wormhole Foundation is dedicated to supporting open-source, decentralized technologies that securely and seamlessly connect Web3.

We are stewards of Wormhole, the world’s first generalized messaging protocol.

Wormhole Foundation

Our mission is to empower passionate people in the research and development of blockchain interoperability technologies. We support teams building secure, open-source, and decentralized products within the Wormhole ecosystem.

We offer grants, research, and ecosystem programs to help a decentralized community of individuals and teams build the connective fabric of the new web.


Wormhole is an infrastructure platform composed of modular, open-source technologies that enable the secure transfer of data between networks.

Wormhole was rated the #1 cross-chain messaging protocol in a comprehensive security report executed by Uniswap’s Bridge Assessment Committee’s security experts over several months.

Wormhole Messaging is a decentralized messaging protocol for blockchain developers to securely and easily enable the flow of information and value with other networks.

The modular, open-source protocol allows developers to tailor the tooling to their chain or app’s needs. Learn more about building with products in the Wormhole stack.

At the core of Wormhole, the Guardians are a decentralized network of 19 world-class validator nodes that monitor each supported blockchain for messages and produce verifiable attestations for messages to be delivered to their destination.
