Hi. My name is Raul and I am an individual passionate about building the decentralized web and contributing to a future where blockchain technology radically transforms our daily lives.
Originally from San Pedro Sula, Honduras, I studied Computer Science at Harvard University, where I became extremely excited about harnessing the power of code to craft technology that people want. I started my own company called Kynplex that made it easy for anyone to stay updated on the latest scientific trends. In 2016, I received the Thiel Fellowship: a $100k grant that allowed me to take 2 years off school to pursue my passions.
I got into Ethereum during its early days and now I am a passionate blockchain developer interested in analyzing cryptoeconomic models and tackling the major problem of scalability this technology faces.
Currently co-leading a team (Prysmatic Labs
) working on implementing the first version of sharding
for the Ethereum protocol.
