About Argent

Argent aims to be crypto’s defining company: the first to bring the benefits of self-custody to a global audience. Giving people control of their assets and identity, and helping them to enjoy new economic opportunities.

To do this we’ve built the first smart wallet. As different from traditional wallets as smart phones were to 90’s phones. Argent is easier, safer, cheaper, and greener.

As a company, we’ve raised a $40m Series B from ParadigmIndex Ventures and Creandum, putting us in a strong financial position with 4 years of runway.

We work remotely across Europe, prioritizing autonomy and flexibility. And it’s a particularly exiciting time to join as we’re preparing to launch breakthrough new products on Starknet and zkSync.

we need wide adoption” of wallets like Argent (Vitalik Buterin, Ethereum co-Founder)
