Dave Cohen

Blockchain Architect
San Francisco
As a long-time software engineer, I got interested in blockchain for the technical innovation. I was intrigued by the Satoshi whitepaper when I first read it in 2012. I wasn't convinced, at the time, that a bitcoin should be worth $6 - because I'm skeptical to a fault, d'oh!

In 2014, I switched away from content management and website work for a job with Ripple, and I've been focused on blockchain ever since. I'm particularly interested in algorithms that advance the state-of-the-art in distributed consensus. Some would say I'm pretty opinionated about it. I left the Ripple job in March of this year, and I'm looking now to join the next big thing - or start it myself.

I'm always happy to talk security, open source software, or review a white paper.
