The Real Deal

General Counsel @ Sifchain (Omni-Channel DEX)

United States [Remote]


About Sifchain

Sifchain is the world's first omni-chain decentralized exchange (DEX) for digital assets, unlocking liquidity in various chains to free people from egregious fees and inefficient trades.

To bring this intention to reality, they envision extensive cross-compatibility with DEXs and centralized exchanges (CEX). The future of Sifchain is a Decentralized Autonomous Organization (DAO) and, for DAOs to self-sustain, they need access to massive capital. Sifchain believes that building cross-chain liquidity will be fundamental to the future of the blockchain industry: an expectation, not a feature.
