  • Date: 20 May 2023
  • Location: Sydney
  • Work Type: Permanent / Full Time

About us

The company is the universal interoperability protocol and infrastructure connecting all blockchain ecosystems, applications, assets, and users. The company's network consists of a protocol suite, tools, and APIs, designed to break down the barriers to cross-chain communication. Powered by a decentralized open network of validators; anyone can join the network, use it and build on it. The company's network makes cross-chain communication as simple as using HTTP(s) protocols on the web. Platform developers can plug in their blockchains to other ecosystems, and application builders and users can leverage a simple protocol and API to access global liquidity and communicate with the entire ecosystem.

The Team

The company's team has deep roots in distributed systems, consensus, and cryptography.
The venture is backed by Polychain, Dragonfly Capital, Coinbase, Binance X, DCVC, and others. It was founded by Sergey Gorbunov (Ph.D. MIT) and Georgios Vlachos (MSc MIT), who previously worked together on the founding team at Algorand.
