I am motivated by revolutionizing how society trades and interacts. Bitcoin and the security properties of its blockchain provide the technical means to catalyze societal evolution. My research therefore focuses on the security, privacy and performance of blockchain and related decentralized financial technology. Because this technology is still in its infancy, I aim to understand and quantify the tension points and tradeoffs in terms of security, privacy and performance, while building scalable and trustless blockchain protocols. Part of my research is e.g., the design of a practical and scalable blockchain layer and the architecture of privacy preserving transaction protocols. I take particular joy in conceiving protocols that increase the accountability and transparency of existing financial systems. My research is inherently multidisciplinary and I frequently collaborate with colleagues worldwide, one recent example is an SoK on layer-two blockchain transactions.

CEO & Co-Founder 

LiquidChain builds the Liquidity.Network (, a practical global blockchain micropayment system, built on top of Ethereum, supporting millions of users securely, reducing transaction costs significantly and enabling the mainstream adoption of blockchain.

As a global settlement system, the Liquidity.Network offers an API to developers to build their applications on top of and allowing payment processors to benefit from the secure and fast transmission of digital cash. The Liquidity.Network has no access to the assets of the participants/users, those funds are secured by the underlying blockchain.

The secret sauce of the Liquidity.Network are novel hubs, which are significantly more powerful and simpler than traditional P2P payment channel networks such as Lightning and Raiden. Liquidity is the technology necessary to build fast, decentralized exchanges.
