Lisk Team

Lisk Team Leader

Oliver Beddows - Vice president & cto
The global financial crisis helped to make Oliver realize that he wanted to create something of bigger significance than the projects he was involved in at the time. With twelve years of development experience, he understood that digital technology, put into the hands of more people than the elite, can be a powerful tool to make the world more just and honest. Oliver saw that blockchain technology offered great opportunity, but that the platforms available for developers were far too complex
