GRAFT core team is lead by Slava Gomzin, a 15+ year veteran of Payments and Information Security Industries, former NCR architect and HP technologist, and author of the books “Hacking Point of Sale” and “Bitcoin for Nonmathematicians”, and Dan Itkis, a veteran R&D executive and enterpreneur, who built and brought to market first Voice-over-IP protocol and gateway stack for Intel, which later became the basis of modern internet voice conferencing, first commercial DSL-ready Video-over-IP (MPEG1/2/4) encoders for Tektronix, and large scale interactive digital media networks for Cisco Systems.
GRAFT core organization is engineering-focused, consists of top proven talent, is distributed, and nimble. We’re focused on delivering cutting edge technology, following best industry practices and incorporating all the latest progress in the field.
GRAFT does not maintain administrative controls of the network – the network is decentralized and open to participants fullfilling various functions, building businesses and revenue opportunities, and adopting GRAFT to local market specifics.
GRAFT Network will leverage existing channels and markets (such as MSPs, ISO’s), while opening the field up to small newcomers.
GRAFT intends to develop towards a fully distributed autonomous organization (DAO).
