Throwing different vegetables together into a bowl does not make it a salad. Similarly, mixing different parts of the decentralised world in one place doesn’t make it a project. We believe that attention-to-detail, systems, and processes are the key missing ingredients in many blockchain projects, especially the ones in the GameFi space.

The vast availability of capital has created the conditions for play-to-earn games, guilds, scholars, and investors to enter the space at an amazing pace. However, this influx of stakeholders requires some method in the madness.

Salad comprises operators focused on quality. This is reflected in the projects we invest in, the partners we build with, and the communities we build.
