Governance

Decentralized Social Organization
In addition to continued development in our existing products, we are expanding from building infrastructure to building applications. These applications are designed to showcase the potential of multi-chain smart contracts, leveraging IBC and a powerful JS front end. Our main focus area is currently self-sovereign governance, as well as identity management and reusable DeFi use cases.

Ethan Frey
CEO
Visionary in figuring out how to channel tech. Ethan Frey graduated with honors from Caltech, with concentrations in distributed system design and neurobiology. After 2 years working in the SF dot-com bubble, he left the tech scene in search of more meaning, and spent the next years involved in permaculture, organic farming, and environmental and anti-war activism. Appalled by Bush's government and his reelection, he eventually left the country, ending up in Berlin in 2007, where he has lived for over 10 years.
He resumed programming full-time in 2009, but his interest in blockchain began in 2014, when an acquaintance presented him the idea of scaling up local currency systems with a distributed ledger. This idea led him to explore a bunch of then nascent platforms, eventually discovering Tendermint and the Cosmos whitepaper in 2016. Since then he has worked full-time on blockchain projects. Notably, building out the cosmos-sdk, light-client proofs, and an IBC whitepaper for Cosmos in 2017; building a new go sdk from the ground up and complete pure-typescript solution for building tendermint dapps for IOV in 2018; and most recently working with Regen Ledger and creating a custom smart contract platform integrated with the cosmos-sdk technology to solve real-world problems.
Martin Worner
COO & VP of Product
Martin Worner an environmental studies graduate, had 10 year journey through finance and technology working at UBS and Morgan Stanley before moving to the rural North of England for quality of life. Missing the fast pace of change of technology in financial institutions Martin set up a company to provide technology and banking expertise to the investment banks around the world while being based in a rural market town. Martin had the idea that others would appreciate the work and the setting, the company grew over the years to 42 people. After sixteen years of running the company Martin decided it was time to move on and make space for the team to take the company to the next chapter and gave the company to the staff, many who had been with him for years.

After a spell at a consultancy Martin became involved in the blockchain and had a very ambitious plan to restructure capital markets and move the key elements to the blockchain and radically reduce the chain of intermediaries while maintaining robustness. This project folded when it became apparent how large the project was. The next step was a short spell at a Hedge Fund figuring out how to tokenise alpha returns, and then moved to IOV where Martin defined the MvP and worked with the tech team to build the blockchain. It was at IOV where Martin began to explore governance models and how organisations are structured.

Simon Warta
VP of Engineering
Simon Warta studied mathematics and computer science and developed an interest in cryptography. Right after university he co-founded the privacy startup Kullo. At Kullo he worked on protocol design of a secure communication solution and built production quality software for desktop and mobile, always striving for the best UX under the constraints that come with securely encrypted data.

He came into blockchain looking for an alternative to proof of work, which he found in the Lisk and Tendermint proof of stake implementations. As an independent contributor at Lisk he fixed a bug that caused a network halt and later discovered and responsibly disclosed a critical transaction malleability bug in Lisk and its forks. As a senior software developer at IOV, he developed the multi blockchain library IOV Core and developed an atomic swap specification. Later he was overseeing the company's overall technology stack and worked on launching a name service on a Tendermint-based blockchain in 2019.

She has been adapting herself to work on various business sectors-maritime transport, education, tourism, e-commerce, electronics and blockchain-from SMC to multinational tech firms both in Asia and Europe learning business culture and skills from diverse perspectives.

In 2018, Misang entered into blockchain helping Tutellus briefly, Spanish blockchain company enhancing its visibility in pursuit of Korean investors, then she moved to IOV, French blockchain company as investor-relation and marketing manager generating leads mainly in Asia. Misang successfully closed the deals with investors and partners as well as contributed in marketing activities, and now keeps doing it for Confio, learning new things and motivated by supporting team members and excited with direct community feedback every day!
