Andreessen Horowitz Creates New Crypto Research Lab

Venture capital firm Andreessen Horowitz (a16z) has announced that it was building out a dedicated crypto research unit. In a blog post today, a16z partners Ali Yahya and Chris Dixon note that the venture capital firm’s crypto research lab is a new kind of “multidisciplinary lab” that will work closely “on solving some of the hardest problems in web3.” The new unit will be headed up by Tim Roughgarden, a researcher and computer science professor both at Columbia University and Stanford University. Roughgarden specializes in algorithmic game theory and technical problems posed by Web 3. He joined the a16z crypto team last year as a research adviser. The rest of the founding a16z crypto research team is a group of multidisciplinary academics which includes Dan Boneh, a professor of computer science and electrical engineering at Stanford specializing in cryptography and computer security. Joining the founding team are Harvard’s Scott Duke Kominers, Meta’s Valeria Nikolaenko, author Joseph Bonneau and researcher Benedikt Bünz.The post Andreessen Horowitz Creates New Crypto Research Lab first appeared on Cryptoknowmics-Crypto News and Media Platform.The post Andreessen Horowitz Creates New Crypto Research Lab appeared first on Cryptoknowmics-Crypto News and Media Platform.
