斯坦福大学博士,斯坦福大学第一个分散应用课程的讲师;结合分布式系统和人机交互,将加密货币带给日常生活中的人们。

我一生都是一名技术专家,这使我在斯坦福大学获得了博士学位,并继续成为那里计算机科学系的博士后学者。作为博士后的一部分,我在斯坦福大学计算机科学系介绍并教授了CS359B,区块链类的分散应用程序。这就是我遇到的第一手困难,让区块链的技术进步掌握在日常人手中。我相信今天的科技比以往任何时候都能赋予人们力量。

作为一名年轻的大学生,我在实验室里白手起家地设计和建造了一个新颖的计算机主板。在我早期的博士工作中,我在区块链和以太坊出现之前,创建了一个在容错分布式系统上编写“智能合约”的框架,并将其作为我的MS论文发表。我还创建了一个网络游戏平台Gameyola,在那里,数百万人在2000多人的时间里自娱自乐;在我后来的博士工作中,我试图通过编写一个群发电子邮件助手来恢复这些人的时间,这可以节省人们处理电子邮件和任务的时间。此外,我还是StartX的创始首席技术官,StartX是斯坦福大学学生的非盈利创业加速器,帮助了2000多名企业家。

我坚信加密货币在技术、金融和社会方面的潜力,但对它们目前的局限性感到失望。我致力于通过改善当前的经验和为每个人创造价值,将区块链的力量带给更多的人。我采用了以用户为中心的设计理念,将新区块链的开发过程颠倒过来:在Beta中启动;邀请成员加入网络;与成员一起迭代协议;分散结果设计。

其结果目前可用作Pi网络,这是一种新的加密货币和点对点网络,目前在150多个国家和32种语言中运行。Pi网络是我100%的职业承诺,而我亲爱的妻子和儿子则是我100%的个人承诺。

斯坦福大学计算机人类学博士利用社会计算在全球范围内释放人类潜能。

我在斯坦福大学获得人类学博士学位,拥有人类行为和人类群体研究方面的专业知识。我的研究兴趣集中在人机交互和社会计算——特别是我们如何利用技术来积极影响人类行为和社会。我以前的研究项目和发表的论文包括设计软件系统以提高生产力、扩大社会通信规模和为人们展示未开发的社会资本。我还创办了一家初创公司,建立了一个电子邮件生产平台,通过众包来扩展对话。

区块链技术让我兴奋的是将分散与经济工具相结合。这一技术奇迹可以动员全世界的个人参与,并因他们的贡献而得到奖励。正如互联网使世界通过信息交换变得更加紧密一样,区块链和加密货币也使人们能够与价值交换进行更密切和更频繁的合作。我相信,它们的潜力远远超出了金融领域,将创造个人、社会和全球层面上没有创造或捕捉到的价值观。我对Pi的希望是建立一个包容的经济体系,让全球公民释放和捕捉自己的价值,进而为社会和世界创造价值。

社区负责人

耶鲁和斯坦福大学培养了社会运动建设者,他们的使命是使社会定义、创造和分配财富的方式民主化。

我的使命是建立一个任何人、任何地方都有机会充分发挥其潜力的世界。从耶鲁大学(Yale University,政治学学士)毕业后,我拒绝了在华尔街从事投资银行业务的工作,转而创办了一家以社区为基础的健康机构WellWyn。当我喜欢教练的时候,我对在规模上创造持久的社会工作是多么的困难感到沮丧。为了影响更多的人,我加入了一家名为Bridgespan的非营利/非政府组织咨询公司,在那里我与慈善家和非政府组织合作,在美国各地的社区部署数亿美元用于教育和劳动力发展。

我在布里奇斯潘的经历使我相信,为人们提供平等的机会需要打破一个根深蒂固的神话:你不能在为世界做好事的同时在经济上繁荣。在斯坦福商学院(Stanford’s Graduate School of Business)入学后,我开始痴迷于人们如何使用加密货币通过行善赚钱,从而重新定义财富的真正含义。为了弄清楚如何实现这一目标,我与人共同创建了斯坦福区块链集体,该集体由750名来自斯坦福和硅谷的思想领袖、商人、工程师和律师组成。我还开始教密码101工作坊,这样我就能更多地了解人们如何使用密码货币来改变他们的生活。

我相信,加密货币是最强大的工具之一,我们必须为世界各地的人们提供实现繁荣新意义的机会。尽管有这种潜力,我们仍处于帮助人们了解加密货币如何改善他们生活的早期阶段。π的目标是改变这一点。圆周率代表了个人终身使命的顶点,即通过重新定义财富来赋予他人权力。

在我的空闲时间,我练习冥想,瑜伽,太极拳。我也喜欢跳舞。我是特立尼达和多巴哥人,会说西班牙语和葡萄牙语。

Dr. Nicolas Kokkalis

Head of Technology

Stanford PhD and instructor of Stanford’s first decentralized applications class; combining distributed systems and human computer interaction to bring cryptocurrency to everyday people.

I have been a technologist all my life, which led me to do a Ph.D. at Stanford University and to continue to become a Postdoctoral Scholar in the Computer Science department there. As part of my postdoc, I introduced and taught CS359B, the Decentralized Applications on Blockchain class, in Stanford’s Computer Science department. That’s where I encountered firsthand the difficulty of getting the technological advances of blockchain into the hands of everyday people. I believe today technology can empower people more than ever.

As a young undergraduate, I designed and built a novel computer motherboard from scratch in the lab. In my early PhD work, I created a framework for writing “smart contracts” on fault tolerant distributed systems, before blockchain and Ethereum came to exist, and published it as my MS thesis. I also created an online games platform, Gameyola, where millions of people entertained themselves for a collective of over 2,000 man years; for my later PhD work, I tried to restore those man years by writing a crowd-powered email assistant that saved people time when processing their emails and tasks. Also, I was the founding CTO at StartX, a non-profit startup accelerator for Stanford students that has helped over 2000 entrepreneurs.

I am a strong and long term believer of the technical, financial and social potential of cryptocurrencies, but frustrated by their current limitations. I am committed to bringing the power of blockchain to more people by improving the current experience and building value for everyone. I’m doing this by employing a user-centric design philosophy that turns the development process of new blockchains upside down: Launch in Beta; invite members to the network; iterate the protocol together with the members; decentralize the resulting design.

The result is currently available as the Pi Network, a new cryptocurrency and peer-to-peer network, which is currently operational in 150+ countries and 32 languages. Pi Network is 100% my professional commitment, while my loving wife and son take up 100% of my personal commitment.

Head of Product

Stanford PhD in Computational Anthropology harnessing social computing to unlock human potential on a global scale.

I finished my Ph.D. in Anthropological Sciences from Stanford University, with expertise in human behavior and human groups studies. My research interests have focused on human-computer interaction and social computing — specifically, how we use technology to positively impact human behavior and societies. My previous research projects and published papers include designing software systems to improve productivity, scale social communications and surface untapped social capital for people. I also founded a startup that builds an email productivity platform that scales conversations by crowdsourcing.

What excites me about blockchain technology is the merging of decentralization with an economic instrument. This technological marvel can mobilize individuals all over the world to participate and be rewarded for their contributions. Just as the internet enabled the world to be more connected through information exchanges, blockchain and cryptocurrencies enable closer and more frequent collaborations with value exchanges. I believe their potential is far beyond the realm of finance, and will create values that have otherwise not been created or captured on individual, societal and global levels. My hope for Pi is the establishment of an inclusive economy for global citizens to unleash and capture their own value, and in turn create value for society and the world.

I speak English & Chinese. I’m a scientist, an engineer, a wife and the mother of a 3-year old.

Vincent McPhillip

Head of Community

Yale and Stanford-trained social movement builder on a mission to democratize how society defines, creates, and distributes wealth.

My mission is to build a world where anyone, anywhere has the opportunity to realize their full potential. After graduating from Yale University (BA, Political Science), I turned down an investment banking job on Wall Street to launch WellWyn, a community-based wellness practice. While I loved coaching, I was frustrated by how hard it was to create lasting social work at scale. To impact more people, I joined a nonprofit / NGO consulting company called Bridgespan where I worked with philanthropists and NGOs to deploy hundreds of millions of dollars for education and workforce development in communities across the U.S.

My time at Bridgespan convinced me that providing people with equal opportunity would require shattering a deep-rooted myth: that you can’t prosper financially while doing good for the world. After enrolling at Stanford’s Graduate School of Business, I became obsessed with the idea of how people could use cryptocurrencies to earn money by doing good, thereby redefining the very meaning of Wealth. To figure out how to make this work, I co-founded the Stanford Blockchain Collective, a group of 750 thought leaders, businesspeople, engineers, and lawyers from across Stanford and Silicon Valley. I also began teaching Crypto 101 workshops so I could learn more about how people could use cryptocurrency to transform their lives.

I am convinced that cryptocurrency is one of the most powerful tools we have to provide opportunities for people everywhere to achieve a new meaning of prosperity. Despite this potential, we are still in the early stages of helping people understand how cryptocurrency could improve their lives. Pi aims to change this. Pi represents the culmination of a personal, lifelong mission to empower others by redefining wealth.

In my free time, I practice meditation, yoga, tai chi. I also love to dance. I’m a native of Trinidad and Tobago, and speak Spanish and Portuguese.
