A Project Rooted in Academia
We’ve learned from our predecessors and we’re building on their legacies to create scalable, accessible, and better technologies that honor their work and our own
The Conflux Network was founded in 2018, based on the breakthrough Tree-Graph consensus algorithm developed in the research lab of Turing Award recipient Dr. Andrew Yao.
In 2020, Conflux established the Tree-Graph Research Institute in partnership with the government of Shanghai and the Key Laboratory of Blockchain Infrastructure & Applications with the government of Hunan. Initiated by our founder Dr. Fan Long, the Tree-Graph Research Institute was created to further the development of the underlying infrastructure of the Conflux public blockchain. As respected advocates of public blockchain infrastructure in China, Conflux continues to lead education and research in blockchain development.
The core leadership team of Conflux Network is comprised of prominent researchers, scientists and business leaders with collective experience across the fields of distributed systems, computer science, cybersecurity, cryptography, game theory, economics and finance and more.
