Jake Yocom-Piatt, Project Lead for Decred, a community-directed digital currency designed to be a superior long-term store of value. Decred's hybrid PoW+PoS consensus mechanism, transparent proposal and voting system, and continually funded treasury, make it secure, adaptable, and self-funding.

Jake has been using, funding and directing the creation of open-source software for over a decade. Prior to Decred, he funded and oversaw the creation of btcsuite, an alternative full-node Bitcoin implementation written in go, whose source code has been used in several other notable projects, e.g. Lightning Network (lnd), Ethereum, and Factom. He is also a co-creator of zkc, a high-security asynchronous chat system.
