George advises us on fully and securely decentralising financial markets. A UCL lecturer, he has consulted on decentralised security and privacy technologies, and built an experimental cryptocurrency for the Bank of England.

George advises Vega Protocol on how to fully and securely decentralise a financial marketplace.

He has extensively researched distributed and decentralised security and privacy technologies, both as professor of security and privacy engineering, and as head of the Information Security Research Group at University College London. George has focused on anonymous communications, privacy enhancing technologies, and traffic analysis since 2000. He also co-designed and prototyped RsCoin, an experimental scalable cryptocurrency for the Bank of England.

He completed his doctorate at Cambridge under Professor RJ Anderson, after which he spent 6 years at Microsoft Research. George is also a Fellow at the Alan Turing Institute and the British Computing Society.

We are transforming how financial markets work, so no one gets to stack the odds against anyone else. On Vega Protocol, markets are open and fair, fees are shared by market makers — not centralised institutions — and governance decisions are made by the community.

What we’re doing isn’t easy. Building a fast, decentralised system is hard. Ensuring it’s fair without a central owner is complex. But we’re not intimidated by challenges. We’re motivated by them.

We can’t do this without an active community. Tell us what you think. Read our protocol whitepaper, and follow our progress on Twitter.
