This year I had the pleasure of attending Global AppSec Amsterdam 2019, which is an amazing chance to learn about the newest, leading application security technology in the field.
Leaving an investment bank after seven years and joining SETL has been a refreshing move with a number of interesting challenges. Whilst I have much to learn, I also have much to bring.
Having an appropriate economic model including governance, equity participation, market data, charges and fees are also important but largely secondary to the overarching need to promote liquidity.
There is no questions that ‘big tech’ has the reach and the savvy to construct a digital currency system, but the debate has moved to how such a system should be regulated
At SETL, it starts with curiosity. From the very beginning we’ve intuitively looked for people above everything that are curious. Where technology is a personal passion as well as a day job.
Instead when I joined SETL, my time became my own, as long as I deliver what’s needed of me, my training and workday schedule is my own to rearrange.
Quantum computing threatens certain kinds of cryptography so, as with other threats, we need to be ready. With this in mind, SETL successfully developed a number of post quantum techniques in 2018 which it could switch on very quickly if required.
At the core of SETL is a proprietary, permissioned-based blockchain. While there is a lot of debate about the merits of public vs private blockchains, we believe that only private blockchains are fit for the regulated environments where SETL operates.
SETL Labs provides a way to test your ideas on the industrial grade SETL blockchain and swiftly develop go-to-market propositions at scale.
A Blockchain is a State and history that uses cryptography and distribution to guarantee immutability and identity. Multiple computers running the blockchain software (Nodes), acting independently, make the network resistant to compromise and distributed storage makes corruption infeasible. If you don’t understand what this means, hopefully all will become clearer
