Originally from the US, I currently live on the Isle of Man where
I am building Credits.
I'm also available on a limited basis for consulting in the
Cryptocurrency & Egaming space.
After playing poker professionally for a few years,
I came to the Isle of Man to work at PokerStars.
In the (almost) four years I spent at PokerStars
I managed the operations, offering, and product for Ring
Games. I then left PokerStars to
create Pythia, the parent company building Credits.
Credits is a greenfield, built from scratch Cryptocurrency with
a brand new consensus algorithm, titled "Proof of Consensus".
The main impetus behind creating Credits is that new ideas in the
Cryptocurrency world are exciting and have huge future potential, but
they're often implemented in awkward and ugly ways in order to be
backwards compatible with Bitcoin or other Satoshi clients.
Instead, Credits is built with extensibility in mind from the start.
This extensibility is paired with the philosophy that it's better to
see how these new concepts play out in the real world, then build the
version 2.0 from the ground up, without any legacy cruft that is
invevitably present in the first implementation.
In the spirit of existing Proof of Stake cryptocurrencies, those
who hold Credits participate in the verification and confirmation
of transactions. However, instead of deterministically choosing a
single node to sign each block, a majority of the network (weighted
by your share of Credits) must sign each block.
The main advantages of Credits are:
While the initial release of Credits will simply be a simple to use
payments network, future development will bring oracles, contracts,
and a feature that works similarly to how SideChains are envisioned
