Other notable investments include Credmark (decentralized risk modelling), Quidli (crypto micro-incentives for remote teams), and Crayonic (bank grade hardware security for authentication, digital assets, and e-signatures).
Previously, dlab offered fellowship programs for individual inventors. Now, Advanced Blockchain and dlab are building a new partnership incubating projects from the ground up.
