Introducing the Nucleus Team
A New Nucleus in an infant industry
In a building, at the geographical heart of the technology industry, Hcash will start a new chapter in its journey. With our new team of weathered crypto-veterans serving as the backbone, Hcash is sure to become the new standard of value, so to speak.
Since Bitcoins inception in 2013, many more cryptocurrencies have come to fruition. Recently, the popularity and prices of these currencies have reached new heights, and are intriguing investors and institutions worldwide. Surpassing venture capital funding, cryptocurrency funding now makes up a partially unregulated US $4 billion-dollar industry.
Described by Techcrunch as a ‘Blockchain switchboard’, Hcash was introduced in 2017 as a way of linking block-based and block-less Blockchain systems, essentially allowing information to be circulated freely between different Blockchains.
Among other technologies, we also aim to implement Zero Proof Knowledge, A hybrid PoW and PoS mining mechanism, democratic DAO governance, unlimited token transfers, and the use of public and private addresses.
To progress towards our ambitious goal, we have been working closely with a number of universities, developers and enthusiasts. Some of these institutions include Monash University, Hong Kong Polytechnic University and Shanghai Jiao Tong University. With quantum resistance and smart contract functionality well under development, we are making good on our promises.
However, to consolidate our direction and to remain true to promises, we have created a new development team. Led by veteran Silicon Valley developers; Mo Sen and John Woeltz, we aim to kick development into the next gear.
Mo is a distributed systems engineer with over a decade of software development experience with Cisco Systems’ iOS Operating System and with Genesys Software through a $1.7B USD acquisition, where he led infrastructure development projects with clients including Citrix, Google/Motorola and numerous others. With a background in computer science at Purdue, Stanford and Tsinghua, he has a suite of knowledge to match his experience.
John is an applied cryptographer, and an early (2011) adopter of Bitcoin. With over 5 years of experience developing, architecting and applying cryptography for Blockchain software and firmware ranging from the world’s first SCRYPT ASIC miners to Artificial intelligence data gathering and model building, John is an expert in the field. Apart from this he advises investors, consults Blockchain projects and contributes to white papers. He believes that the ecosystem is ready to build the next layer of Blockchain applications. John is currently exploring quantum resistant Blockchain consensus mechanisms and signatures as well zero-knowledge proofs and cross-chain scaling solutions for Blockchains.
The two will be able to spearhead the development of Hcash, by both developing its code and by consolidating the efforts of our external teams. They will then present their findings to the Silicon Valley Blockchain community. The community will receive updates on issues such as:
- The development and implementation of quantum-resistant technologies from the institutions named above;
- The work being done on high-throughput smart contract functionality, incorporating the Ethereum Virtual Machine into Hcash’s side-DAG to help potentially address Ethereum’s scaling challenges;
- Potential implementations for Hcash’s side-chain technology;
- Cutting-edge consensus mechanisms in development;
- Upcoming interoperability initiatives; and
- The high-throughput smart contract system for Hcash by Nanjing
Overall, the two will be able to provide Hcash with leadership, knowledge, and experience, to boost the Hcash ecosystem to the leading edge of Blockchain.
