Proteus has both a Centralized & Decentralized approach, allowing users to create wallets & connect to Metamask or Terra Station from the same app.
In 2022, together with Gabriele Pauliukaite, Lukas Navickas created a VC fund located in Switzerland called 100xpartners.com. The goal is to revolutionize how advisory is provided in the crypto space and make the crypto investing & advisory services more transparent. The fund works with every incorporated startup day by day and makes sure that every startup has everything it needs to succeed.
