Tezos, a blockchain by scientists: principles and applications

Seminar | 020 | 15:00

Diego Pons,


Tezos is a blockchain done by computer scientists most of them related to the INRIA. As a result, Tezos is written in OCaml, advocates solid algorithms, domain specific languages for smart contracts and formal verification. We will expose some of the principles that guided the creation of Tezos, explain the challenges ahead and discuss potential applications.


Diego Olivier Fernandez Pons was a funding board member of the Tezos foundation during its first year. His specialty is mixed integer linear programming and combinatorial optimization applied to industrial problems. He worked for ILOG for many years. He now acts as an advisor in languages and formal verification for Tezos Southeast Asia
