What our clients are saying
Mitchel Harad
CEO of PockBox
“ The team delivered a major rebuild and upgrade of our product. As we went through the process, they invested in educating us on the costs and advantages of several key architecture decisions so that we clearly understood the trade-offs and could make informed decisions. I was impressed by their commitment to quality, a thorough QA process, and highly usable documentation. The project was on-budget and its performance is well above our expectations! ”


  • What is Escape?

    We are a web3 (aka blockchain) development and design agency. We help our clients through every stage of the software development process - from idea to launch.

  • Where is your team based?

    We are fully remote, although most of the team is located on the west coast of the U.S. and urban tech hubs in Asia.

  • What’s your pricing?

    We are a boutique agency with premium pricing, but our prices are always fair and reasonable relative to the results we deliver for our clients. We work with our clients to finalize a price for their project based on a number of different variables. This is typically on a project basis or monthly retainer depending on their needs.

  • How does payment work?

    We accept fiat or crypto (BTC, ETH, or liquid stablecoins only). For fiat, our clients typically pay via Wise or wire/bank transfer. For monthly retainer projects, the monthly payment is due upfront at the beginning of each month. For fixed priced projects, payment is due upon completion of milestones.

  • How long will my project take to complete?

    This is too difficult to forecast without knowing all of the factors like objectives, scope, budget, timeline, resources, etc., but on average projects take approx. 3-4 months

  • Is my intellectual property protected?

    Yes, apart from being covered extensively in the contract, we go to great lengths to ensure all of our clients' assets and IP are protected and secure.

  • Do you audit smart contracts?

    Yes, we audit all of our smart contracts, although we always recommend that our clients get a second opinion from a third-party auditing firm.

  • How can I ensure my codebase is secure?

    We test all our code and have a quality assurance (QA) team responsible for identifying any bugs, errors, vulnerabilities or potential exploits. We recommend clients take extra precautions by testing their product thoroughly and having it audited by a third-party prior to release.
