About Me

I’m Dave Hrycyszyn, and I’m a coder.

I work at Nym, protecting user privacy at both the network and application levels, using mixnets and threshold credential systems. I also advise Vega about blockchains, consensus, and application development.

Previously, I worked with my friend George at Chainspace. We designed and built some of the fastest and most scalable blockchain systems in the world, which led to a deal with Facebook’s Libra.

Before that, I ran a London-based software consultancy, doing work all over Europe. We grew to about 60 people, then sold to Zone who sold to Cognizant.

I wrote the book on the speedy Scalatra microframework. I’ve built high scalability systems for some of the world’s largest organisations.

I come from Canada, live in London, and enjoy sailing.
