OnePiece Labs: Progress Report

Since its inception, OnePiece Labs (OPL) has always placed the community at the core of our mission. Our primary focus is to help community members identify business opportunities, enhance their projects, grow their ventures, and achieve PMF, whether we organize hackathons, run incubator programs, or make strategic investments. The OPL partners bring our extensive Web3 entrepreneurial and investment expertise to the table and collaborate with industry leaders to share valuable insights with our community. Over the past year, we have been honored to have friends from Pantera Capital, Multicoin Capital, Coinbase, OKX, Sei, Algorand, Celo, and many more join our community events and actively engage with our members.

In addition to partnering with industry leaders, we have also been working alongside various communities such as Offchain, GDG, Spawn, and Open Future Forum to build and strengthen the Web3 ecosystem collectively. By joining forces with these organizations, we aim to foster collaboration and facilitate the exchange of knowledge, ultimately benefitting the entire Web3 community.

Unveiling Our Latest Collaborative Venture — Sei Labs

What is Sei?

Sei is an open-source Layer 1 blockchain specialized for trading, optimizing every layer of the stack to offer the best infrastructure for trading apps of all types. Leveraging a novel consensus and technical breakthroughs, Sei is the fastest blockchain in existence.

The Sei Vision

The destination for all on-chain trading apps — across gaming, NFTs and DeFi

What is Sei Foundation?

The Sei Foundation is a non-profit that supports the Sei ecosystem, which is part of a larger community of organizations and individuals committed to the growth of the open-source Sei blockchain. As the fastest Layer 1 blockchain, Sei’s unique chain-level optimizations empower decentralized exchanges and trading apps in social, NFTs, gaming, and DeFi sectors to deliver unparalleled user experiences.

The Sei Network

Sei Network is one of the most exciting new networks, having raised $30 million and boasting a $120 million ecosystem fund. With over 150 projects building on testnet and a reputation as one of the fastest networks, they’re seeking projects with mass appeal rather than catering exclusively to the web3 community.

What problem does Sei solve?

  • Exchanging digital assets is the bedrock of crypto — across DeFi, NFT marketplaces and GameFi.
  • Despite having the clearest product-market fit among all types of apps in crypto, trading apps face a major scaling problem on Layer 1s today. Exchanges face the Exchange Trilemma: between decentralization, scalability and capital efficiency, they cannot achieve all three.
  • Sei addresses the DEX scalability problem by building the first Layer 1 specialized for trading, optimizing every layer of the stack to offer the best infrastructure for trading apps.


Okay, but why Sei Labs?

What Sei offers

  • Sei is the fastest chain to finality — point blank — with a lower bound of 300ms
  • Twin-turbo consensus — achieves industry-leading performance
  • One of the only chains to conduct market-based parallelization
  • Native order matching engine that exchange teams can leverage
  • Frontrunning protection — combats malicious frontrunning that is rampant in other ecosystems

The combination of these optimizations make Sei the haven for the top trading apps globally. For more detailed information on technical innovations, please read the whitepaper.

The People

A key aspect of our alliance with Sei Labs lies in our mutual emphasis on community support and growth. Both organizations are dedicated to nurturing and empowering our collaborative communities, laying the groundwork for a productive and harmonious partnership. We are confident that joining forces can achieve even greater impact and success for our community members as they eagerly advance to the next level in the web3 space.

Furthermore, Sei Labs is committed to providing dedicated assistance and resources to OPL community members, ensuring they have access to the necessary tools, guidance, and expertise to excel in their ventures. This level of support will significantly boost the development and progress of our community projects.

Finally, our collaboration with Sei Labs forms a potent alliance, merging Sei’s technical proficiency with OPL’s business acumen.
