"Since ETHDenver 2020 we have been building out Swivel. We left ETHDenver with a ton of initial momentum, finished our basic on-chain proof-of-concept and, with some potential investor encouragement, then began working full time on Swivel.
Coming off that push and looking for an opportunity to legitimize the project, we then joined Gitcoin’s Kernel Fellowship Genesis cohort, an experience that has been integral to getting where we are today. Kernel of course accelerated our development, but more importantly introduced us to a community of developers and thought leaders that have been invaluable. Between contributions to our liquidity incentive design from Status’ Andy Tudhope and continuous input from Kernel mentor and now Swivel contibutor Thomas Klocanas, we came out of Kernel with a novel protocol design and the guidance we needed. Further, thanks in part to the investor platform Kernel provided, we were able to come out of demo day with the support of our earliest investors, Imran Khan and Qiao Wang."
