What if I told you that the process of deploying a blockchain solution should be relatively fast like in minutes to hours, and easy and not demand a massive investment? Based on deployment-ready solutions available now, significant benefits, the least of which are transparency and traceability can be realised early on and can be easily repeated and scaled along your supply chain. If the solution you're considering cannot perform these simple functions, it's time to reevaluate.
Cem Özer, Protocol Engineer, Pegasys
Cem (pronounced Gem) studied Computer Science at Northwestern University. His first interaction with Ethereum was as a smart contract developer at the AdChain team, where he worked on voting systems on Ethereum. Having noticed that scalability is key to bring this novel technology to the masses, Cem started researching on his own about sharding and other scalability solutions. He was very excited to see Ethereum 2.0 research develop, and joined PegaSys’s Ethereum 2.0 implementation team as soon as he noticed they were hiring. He now works on Artemis, PegaSys’ Eth 2.0 client, focusing on state transitions.
