Islands are our passport for the metaverse, and where web3 communities live on the internet.
We’re all social creatures. The desire to connect is in our DNA. Building and belonging to communities is what makes us human.
Technology has massively scaled the power of communities in society — they’ve evolved from hunter-gatherers around a fire, to 100,000+ sports fans in a stadium, to millions of commenters in a subreddit or on a YouTube channel.
Now, these communities are more powerful than big corporations.
Seize the memes of production
Teams share goals. Families share genes. Communities share identities. And when it comes to shared identities, memes are everything.
Memes makes communities stronger, and strong communities change the world.
However, we don't believe communities should live in walled gardens like Facebook and Instagram, where they’re tightly controlled to extract value and squash innovation.
Web3 puts the memes of production into the hands of creators, letting individuals take ownership of their content, curation, and commerce. Democratizing access means that EVERYONE, not just a select few, will have the same opportunity to build.
That’s what Islands is all about –– empowering people to create culture. And then letting them explore, own, share, and trade together.
Our mission is giving creators and collectors anywhere in the world equal access to the building blocks they need to back people and projects.
