The Roots of Progress

Bryan Bishop AMA on the Progress Forum

From the Progress Forum:

I’m Bryan Bishop, a biohacker and programmer working on fintech, banking, crypto and biotech. I am best known as a contributor to the open-source Bitcoin project, but have also worked on projects in molecular biology and genetic engineering, such as the commercialization of human embryo genetic engineering. Before this, I co-founded Custodia Bank (previously Avanti Bank & Trust) where from 2020-2022 I worked as CTO. From 2014-2018, I was a Senior Software Engineer at LedgerX, the first federally-regulated bitcoin options exchange, where I currently sit on the Board of Directors.

Bryan’s work was featured recently in the MIT Technology Review: “The DIY designer baby project funded with Bitcoin.”
