Arthur Breitman is a Co-Founder of Tezos, a blockchain platform that offers on-chain governance. It raised $232 million in its crowd sale in 2017 making it one of the largest in the industry. He previously worked at Google X and Waymo on self-driving cars, and before that, as a quantitative analyst at both Goldman Sachs and Morgan Stanley.
Arthur Breitman is an architect of the Tezos protocol, which is one of the leading blockchains in the field of on-chain governance. The project raised $232 million during its fundraiser in 2017, put its network into production in June 2018, and as of April 2019 claims a market cap of more than $890 million.
Although Tezos is arguably on its way to becoming one of the success stories of 2019, the path to this point was fraught with difficulties, including a now-resolved conflict between board members of the Swiss-based Tezos Foundation and lawsuits from dissatisfied token holders. Nevertheless, Tezos is an operational cryptocurrency and smart-contract platform, and despite its recent launch, has a relatively long history, stretching back to 2014.
Arthur plans to talk about:
- Tezos and its road map;
- Why Smart Contracts Make You Better Money and How To Make Them Secure;
- What On-Chain Governance Is All About;
- Why Proof-of-Stake Offers Great Security and Economic Trade Offs; and
- Deriving Blockchain Use Cases From First Principles.
He writes, “I also plan to explain some of the philosophy behind the protocol, its design goals and important technical features, including on-chain governance as a protection against social attacks on the protocol.”
Arthur is one of the Co-Founders of Tezos and a contributor to the Tezos community. Prior to becoming involved in Tezos full time, he worked at Google X and Waymo on self-driving cars. Even earlier, he worked as a quantitative analyst at both Goldman Sachs and Morgan Stanley. He graduated from the École polytechnique outside of Paris and holds a MS in financial mathematics from the Courant Institute at NYU.
