Romain Pellerin has a PhD in distributed computing from the Conservatoire National des Arts et Métiers and Télécom SudParis. He has founded three start-ups since 2008, at which he held both chief executive and chief technology officer positions. Since 2017, Romain has built blockchain-based products for clients, including a major international bank, and released open-source projects to help developers create durable blockchain systems. A key part of this work has been Romain’s focus on reducing complexity and cutting costs by encouraging the adoption of public blockchains, so lowering the barrier to entry for companies.
