About us

The magic of an NFT is what it inspires. The doors it unlocks, the passionate communities that form around it, and the ways it can be endlessly reimagined and remixed.

We've worked at the intersection of machine learning and media for more than fifteen years at companies including YouTube, Google, OpenSea and Eora.

Optic is the smartest content recognition engine for Web3. Our mission is to bring transparency to the media on blockchains so all communities can realize their creative and economic potential.

So if someone falls in love with what you’ve made and creates incredible art with it, you’ll know. And if someone crops your image and claims it as their original work, you’ll know that too.

But we don’t police what happens next and leave that choice to the communities who create, love, and trade this content.

We know the power of that choice, and we’ve seen companies hoard it, earning billions by policing creativity. We want to put that choice back in the hands of the people who’ve built this ecosystem.
