Dusk Network would like to introduce our most recent additions to the core team, starting with Victor Lopez. Victor is one of two great additions we recently made to our technical team, contributing to the zero-knowledge Virtual Machine (VM).
Victor studied at a prominent South American university — Universidade de São Paulo (USP )— and attended seminars in the Logics, Artificial Intelligence, and Formal Methods field, making him familiar with the mathematical modeling necessary to develop and verify systems. Victor has implemented several large scale distributed financial systems, his last project being the adaptation and localization of a large system at TOTVS, leader in the Brazilian ERP market, to comply with Russian law and market standards. Working with (legacy-) distributed financial systems gave Victor a business-led architectural view and an out-of-the-box creativity, very much suitable when connecting blockchain ledgers to different technologies.
A Rust developer evangelist
Primarily being a Rust Developer, Victor strongly believes in the future potential of Rust, as it combines a very efficient programming paradigm with an amazing community. He actively contributes to growing Rust in the corporate environment, acting as a speaker at many conferences and public events like RustRush, the Rust Developers Conference in Moscow. He is committed to the open-source philosophy, and always actively participated in projects like Ethereum, where he did research and experimentation on the Ethereum 2.0 lighthouse implementation.
With a perfect fit between Rust and our blockchain environment (we code mainly in Go/Rust), we are confident that Victors’ experience will help to improve the wallet and protocol implementations, and to strengthen our cryptography. He will fill the role of Blockchain Developer, bringing various development skills and experience to the team. Together we will be on it to ready our zero-knowledge VM for Testnet Release V2.0.
