“We’re building 5ireChain to eliminate intermediaries and bring all the impact makers onto a level playing field where they can use the shared language of the UN SDGs. We want businesses to act as a force for good and help move the world from a for-profit paradigm to a for-benefit paradigm, facilitating the transition from the fourth industrial revolution to the fifth industrial revolution.”

We’re building a new blockchain platform using novel protocols published in scientific papers. We work on problems in the fields of sustainability, cryptography, concurrent algorithms, and distributed systems. In order to solve those challenges, we need your help. 

We’re using Rust—a cutting-edge language that’s rapidly gaining traction—and Substrate, which is a Rust framework for blockchain development.

We’re looking for software developers with proven Rust experience, working knowledge of Substrate, and general familiarity with blockchain technologies. Don’t worry if you’re not fluent in any of those—we will provide you with well-structured onboarding and recurring seminars to build upon what you already know. Both Rust and Substrate are becoming increasingly popular in the distributed ledger space, and the investment in learning the technology will only become more relevant over time—for the project, and for you as an individual.

You’ll be working directly with the existing research and development team.

You will contribute to:

  • Design and architecture definition

  • Network features and enhancements

  • Claims and Identity open standards implementation

  • Technical and non-technical publications

5ire explorations :

  • Consensus engine / Sustainability-driven Consensus Reward distribution mechanisms.

  • SDG-related Multi-agent decision-making mechanisms such as committee elections, e-voting, e-auctions, and general on-chain governance.

  • Blockchain runtime functionalities (SSI DIDs, Decentralized and permissionless naming protocols, Lightweight Cryptography, Layer 2 solutions, Protocol-level Oracles, TEEs, AI-based SGD Analysis and Telemetry with IoT & Sensory Technologies).

  • IPFS-based solutions. IPFS allows for data to be stored across a distributed network of nodes, which has the potential to eliminate any single point of failure. 


  • Rust Programming Language

  • Web-Assembly

  • Post-Quantum cryptography

  • Heterogeneous network sharding

  • Intel SGX

  • Liquid democracy and governance mechanisms

  • Peer-to-Peer (P2P) Networking

  • Interplanetary File System (IPFS)
