Chainlink Labs One Of Fast Company’s Most Innovative Web3 Companies In 2024

Today, Chainlink Labs, the leading contributing developer to the industry-standard decentralized computing platform, Chainlink, was named one of Fast Company’s Most Innovative Companies of 2024. As one of the top ten innovative organizations in the Blockchain, Crypto, Metaverse, and Web3 category, Chainlink Labs was recognized for “installing the plumbing for the decentralized economy.” 

Fast Company’s Most Innovative Companies is a definitive source of world-changing organizations across 58 industries and sectors, as evaluated by a team of Fast Company editors and reporters. This year, special recognition was given to blockchain, crypto, metaverse, and web3 organizations building and developing “the industry’s foundational pillars, whose roles in upholding the infrastructure of the space are only growing stronger.”

Chainlink Labs earned praise for tackling the blockchain industry’s interoperability problem through Chainlink’s Cross-Chain Interoperability Protocol (CCIP), which transfers digital assets and data between chains. As illustrated by Swift’s proof of concept, which demonstrated how over 11,000 financial institutions can use CCIP to transact with a range of public and private blockchains, CCIP is poised to unite DeFi and TradFi on a global standard akin to TCP/IP

By securely connecting capital markets to DeFi, CCIP is also accelerating the digital asset space, empowering traditional financial institutions such as Euroclear and ANZ to unlock exciting use cases for tokenized real-world assets that confer opportunities such as fractionalization and programmability. 

“We’re excited to be recognized as one of Fast Company’s Most Innovative Companies in 2024,” said Giovana Totini, Chief People Officer at Chainlink Labs, in an official announcement. “Innovation doesn’t happen without resilience and sacrifice. It’s the great people who make up Chainlink Labs, the principles that they abide by, and the culture that’s been built here all working together to make this a company that’s capable of pushing boundaries to achieve breakthroughs that build the future.”

As a fully distributed company, Chainlink Labs has grown to hundreds of team members in dozens of countries over the past few years. Known for attracting top talent at the forefront of blockchain innovation, the organization consistently ranks high on FlexJobs’ annual Top 25 Companies That Hire for Work-From-Anywhere Jobs list, while Chainlink co-founder Sergey Nazarov was recently celebrated on CoinDesk’s Most Influential list of crypto trailblazers in 2023.
