Dominic is the Founder and President at DFINITY, responsible for building the decentralized cloud platform—called the Internet Computer.
Since the organization’s inception in 2016, DFINITY’s mission has been to extend the Internet into a powerful decentralized cloud to host the next-generation of software and services. The Internet Computer, scheduled to debut in 2019, is being built by the industry’s leading team of distributed systems and cryptography experts, across several research centers around the world, and backed by investors such as a16z and Polychain Capital.
Over the past 20 years, Dominic has had a distinguished career as a crypto theoretician and serial entrepreneur focused on the Internet and distributed systems. Recently, his scientific discoveries across Threshold Relay and PSC chains, Validation Towers and Trees, USCIDs, and The 3 E's of Sybil Resistance have pioneered new approaches to cryptography and blockchain technology.
