Come Build on the ThirdFi Ecosystem

In ThirdFi’s company mission and DNA, we want to empower more developers to join our journey of onboarding the next billion people to decentralized finance and freedom of money.

Aligning with the mission, ThirdFi team came up with the RFB (Request For Builders) initiative in January 2023, which was a twist from the original term of RFP (Request For Proposal).

The ThirdFi’s RFB (Request For Builders) Program is an ongoing developer program, where web2/web3 builders can join and build working web app utilizing the ThirdFi solutions. This program aims to catalyze the growth of web3 development and make decentralized finance (DeFi) accessible and easy for more developers around the world.
