Yonatan Sompolinsky

DAGLabs was founded by Dr. Yonatan Sompolinsky with the purpose of implementing the GHOSTDAG protocol – invented by Yonatan with his then Ph.D. advisor professor Aviv Zohar.

Yonatan started gaining a reputation within the cryptocurrency academic circle back in 2013 when he and professor Zohar conceived the GHOST protocol, a protocol famous for being cited in the Ethereum whitepaper as a design goal.

Yonatan currently holds a post-doctoral position at Harvard researching transaction ordering protocols and MEV.
