Daniel Hughes, chief technical officer of Radix DLT invented the Radix platform and ‘Tempo’ - it’s underlying engine.
In 2011 Dan Hughes, the founder of Radix, discovered Bitcoin and was instantly hooked by the underlying elegance of its distributed protocol. Having tested the limits of distributed ledgers based on blockchains, block-trees, and directed acyclic graphs(DAG), he found they all had a fundamental inability to scale. He dedicated his time developing a highly scalable distributed ledger technology platform. Five years in R&D and after many iterations he eventually invented ‘Tempo’ - a novel distributed ledger architecture for trustless systems, that is sharded to scale in an efficient, unbounded linear fashion.
