Orion Protocol's development is led by Alexey Koloskov.
Alexey has a strong background in leading technological projects in the financial world. He has been a chief engineer and has been a technology development manager at major banks.
He has synergized his development talents and deep-rooted experience with financial products to make considerable early steps in DeFi.
Alexey created the Waves DEX (now waves.exchange
), which is the most successful decentralized exchange to date. Despite only listing 18 coins, the peak volumes on the DEX cross $100M, and daily averages are regularly maintained at $10M. This milestone product serves as a testament to Alexey's ability to create blockchain products that are not only decentralized, but also characterized with a strong product/market, are viable from a business standpoint, and are scalable enough to support unprecedented demand.
Alexey has been developing Orion Protocol since 2018. Until late-2019, he and the team had primarily self-funded Orion's development.
