Genesis Founding Member

"When I started, I wasn't treated like a noob, but was met with motivation and helping hands. The community is more than welcoming and happy to help anyone from all levels of expertise."

Genesis Founding Member

"Running a Mina node doesn't have a high barrier to entry - you don't need too technical of a background to start and many people can just start in 10 minutes from the docs provided."

Greg | DeFidog

Genesis Founding Member

"While Mina's technology is cutting edge, what really makes the project is the people involved, both the O(1) Labs team members and the Mina community."

SF Bay Area


Genesis Founding Member

"I feel that Mina’s testnet is the most accessible compared to other testnets. Every step is explained very well in the docs, which is very important to me as I'm not a technical specialist."



Genesis Founding Member

"My favorite thing about Mina is how it utilizes and builds on zk-SNARKs, which are a fundamental technology that could have a massive impact on the blockchain space and technology in general."

Victoria, Canada

“My measure of a project isn't the quality of the tech. It’s the quality of the community. I wouldn't have been able to spin my node up if it weren't for the insanely great members that helped me. And that's something special.””

Our Culture

It’s hard to quantify, but it’s not hard to see: in any community, culture is everything. It’s the values that drive us. It’s how we see the world and how we show up. Culture is who we are and becomes what we create.

What Unites Us


Above all, we respect each other. That’s why we stand for equality and fairness. Why we’re committed to decentralization. And why we strive to always be inclusive and accessible.


It’s our obsession to understand and solve. Our attraction to big questions and impossible problems. Our love of collaboration and exploration. It’s our imagination, at work.


We demand the best of ourselves. Elegant solutions. Symphonic systems. Technical beauty. We’re committed to creating tech people can depend on. We enjoy the process and deliver results.


We’re all about being there for our community. Empowering people with helpful information. Sharing where we are. Owning our mistakes. And serving our vision with humility.
