Zanshin is a word used commonly throughout Japanese martial arts to refer to a state of relaxed alertness. Literally translated, zanshin means “the mind with no remainder.” Zanshin is being constantly aware of your body, mind, and surroundings without stressing yourself. It is an effortless vigilance.

The Zanshin Dojo is a collective that brings the principles of mindfulness, awareness and vigilance from the traditional Japanese martial arts to the modern world of Web3 operations.

We are a small team of technical professionals who believe that Web3 can change the status quo and put more power in the hands of the users and creators. Our team discovered BTC in 2011 and presently operates independent infrastructure in support of the Agoric, Celo, Decred, Ethereum2, Horizen, Ren and Zcash networks.

Supported Networks

Agoric is a Proof-of-Stake chain utilizing secure JavaScript smart contracts to rapidly build and deploy DeFi.

Celo is a carbon neutral, fully EVM compatible proof-of-stake layer-1 protocol, featuring a fast ultralight client and built-in seigniorage stablecoins, collateralized by crypto and natural assets.


We believe that privacy and decentralization in web3 are critical, and are exploring how we can best contribute to the following projects:

  • Aztec
  • Anoma
  • Penumbra
  • Abacus
  • Celestia
