Core

The CoBox team has a combined 50+ years experience in cooperative networks and relevant tech development. We’ve been involved in the H2020 Consortium, Secure Scuttlebutt, MayDay Rooms, Loomio, Mietshauser Syndikat, London Social Centre Network, and more.

We are all experienced in effective collaboration and know how to work as a team. We are a high-EQ group, emphasising the human elements of what it takes to make great software, backed up by technical expertise.

Advisors

Our advisors are our peers. They are humans that we trust to hold us to account for our values and ethics. They are humans who trust us enough to put their name in association with our experiments. We draw on their expertise and friendship in the course of encoding ethics and in mapping how to navigate unknown terrains; what to focus on, which directions to build towards and which communities we need to embed ourselves in to ensure we are building in service of expanding who gets to be a Peer in the new realms of P2P technologies.

Collectively they have forecasted the Walkaway-net, built blockchain prototypes for the Bank of England, been involved at the ground level of twitter, established go to market playbook, built multi billion dollar P&L for Stripe, built a software framework used internally within Netflix and the BBC, delivered cryptocurrency 101 sessions at AfroTech Fest, written Hippocratic Oaths (the Satoshi Oath) delivered at one of the worlds first Ethereum coding schools and participated in ongoing European research advancing the state of the art in collaborative blockchain supported community participatory local token schemes.
