Wormhole Labs, a technology company founded by former senior operators at Jump Trading, announced its launch today after a period of stealth to accelerate innovation on the Wormhole network, the worlds first interoperability protocol.

Since its launch in 2021 as the worlds first generic messaging protocol, the Wormhole network has become mission-critical infrastructure for the biggest blockchains and currently supports hundreds of projects sending more than 2 million messages every day. In total, the network has facilitated the transfer of over $35 billion in value and has processed close to a billion messages. Wormholes technology has been adopted by the teams building industry leading protocols like Uniswap, Synthetix, Lido, Pyth, Threshold, and many more.

Wormhole Labs is a technology company that specializes in building products, tools, and reference implementations to help grow the Wormhole network, as well as the broader cross-chain ecosystem. Operating independently provides the Wormhole Labs team an opportunity to double down and accelerate innovation on a widely-adopted project serving a critical need in crypto.

Like a lot of good ideas, when Wormhole was first launched in 2021, the concept of interoperability across blockchains was seen as premature, said Saeed Badreg Co-Founder and CEO of Wormhole Labs. Fast forward to today, and weve seen Wormholes uptake outstrip even our most ambitious targets.

"Like countries facilitating commerce across borders, each blockchain is its own economy needing easy trade to grow. At Wormhole Labs, we specialize in building the tools and infrastructure that make connecting across these digital borders seamless."

Wormhole Labs has welcomed aboard 15 former engineers and product managers from Jump Trading Group. These professionals, who had already been contributing to the project during their tenure at Jump, bring a wealth of expertise and insight to the company.

Helping co-found Wormhole Labs is the former founding PM of Stripe Crypto, Aakash Thumaty, While I was at Stripe, we talked about our mission to increase the GDP of the internet. At Wormhole Labs, were fundamentally solving the same problem – building a developer platform that makes building in crypto more accessible and commercially viable.

Wormhole has been a critical piece of infrastructure and gateway to the Solana network since 2021, enabling developers to easily onboard users to Solana, said Anatoly Yakovenko, the co-founder of Solana. Im excited that the exceptional engineering team at Wormhole Labs will bring even more development focus to Wormhole. Im excited to see what Wormhole will build next."

"I'm very excited about Synthetix and Wormhole Labs codeveloping core infrastructure for upcoming versions of Synthetix." Kain Warrick Founder of Synthetix Protocol

"Having known the team at Wormhole Labs for many years, we're thrilled to see such a talented group take this big step in the benefit of the project. Wormhole has always been critical infrastructure and we at Backpack are excited to co-build an interoperable future together. Armani Ferrante Cofounder and CEO of Backpack
