We’re proud to announce that Gavin Wood is coming to Gears18! Wood is the co-founder and former CTO of Ethereum – the second biggest cryptocurrency by market cap. Wood was Ethereum CTO for the first 18-24 months of the project where he was responsible for ensuring the design, development and final release of Ethereum. Following he founded Parity Technologies with several other Ethereum alumni. Additionally he helped found or advise a number of additional organisations, including GridSingularity, Blockchain Capital, Polychain Capital and Melonport.

Most recently Wood has written the Polkadot paper, a proposal for a heterogenous scalable multi-chain; the first of its kind. But we didn’t have to tell you any of that, did we?
