Meet the Team
The developers which make it all happen.
Abi - Full Stack
Bringing 7 years of full-stack experience, with a lean toward mobile development, Abi made the plunge into crypto back in 2020. He's worked at Ajaib (the Robinhood of Indonesia) and Indodax (the Coinbase of Indonesia) working on beautiful mobile UX and performant financial apps. Favorite languages include Go-lang and Swift, but he's settling on JS for the time being!
Bulgaa - Full Stack
This rockstar developer has over a decade of experience building apps for governments, banks, and large commercial companies such as Toyota. He is a Kubernetes specialist with solid Typescript skills, making him the Swiss army knife of the team. Bulgaa joined the project very early on when Naba + Mikio were still hacking away, and has been a key contributor to what you see today.
Lhagi - Quant
A Kaggle star in his own right, Lhagi has been grinding away for around a decade in data science and mathematics, with a specialty in risk management. Previously he led the credit risk assessment efforts at a large bank, building out a credit scoring model which runs today. When he's not crunching numbers for Cyan, he is participating in competitions and has placed in the top 7% of Optiver's latest campaign. His current rank on the Kaggle is 744 out of 188,200 data scientists.
Mikio - Founder, Degen
Since his first purchase of Bitcoin back in 2013, Mikio has fallen deep into crypto. Tired of playing zero-sum games, he made the transition to positive-sum games back in 2017 and hasn't left crypto since. A decade of trading at investment banks and hedge funds has morphed into building projects which add value to early adopters of crypto.
Naba - Smart Contracts
From online betting systems to predictive keyboards, Naba has an eclectic but super impressive background. As a specialist in backend systems and logic, EVM was a natural fit for this FANG engineer. He's led the engineering efforts at Cyan, developing the backbone for what is Cyan Protocol v1 - stay tuned for v2!
Zori - Full Stack
Zori has been building and hacking his whole life, starting in elementary school. As a full-stack developer for the past decade, he's built highly scalable and performant apps, namely for governments and banks. Able to adapt on the fly, mostly fueled by coffee, he's able to parse through even the worst documentation written by man. He's fallen into crypto and can't get out.
Zulaa - Full Stack
While only having a few years under her belt, she is currently the team's front-end ninja. Zulaa brings with her three years of experience in front-end engineering and the ability to rapidly adapt to new changes. When she isn't busy digging into her terminal, she is volunteering for Google's Women Techmakers, helping to develop a strong community of women in software engineering.
