Too Long; Didn't Read

Ishan Pandey: Hi Cheng, welcome to our series “Behind the Startup”. Please tell us about yourself and the story behind Alephium? Cheng Wang: Hi Ishan, first of all, thank you for having me! I have been involved in blockchain research and application for many years. I came to Switzerland in 2013 for my PhD studies. My research topic was consensus algorithms, long before consensus algorithms became of interest. During my research, I proposed the first linear-time asynchronous Byzantine consensus algorithm. It’s what drove me to work in blockchain. Since the release of the Bitcoin white paper, blockchain has gone through its first important decade. As you know, some of the most popular blockchains are currently facing important scalability and security challenges. Blockchain technology is still at an early stage and the natural question to ask is: What is the blockchain infrastructure we need for the next 10 years for DeFi (but more generally Dapps)?
