Solomon Lederer, Ph.D., got his doctorate in distributed and ad-hoc sensor networks where he came up with novel ways for networks to self organize. He went on to apply his research into developing new wireless networks for the U.S. Air Force. He then moved into developing computer systems for the finance industry. Since he discovered blockchain technology a couple years ago, Dr. Lederer has been focusing on that, developing a distributed autonomous organization (DAO) running on the blockchain. He has been teaching about blockchain and Ethereum for 2 years.
