A new Core Dev joins SCRT Labs

We are glad to announce that a new Core Developer joins SCRT Labs.

Vlad Gelfer (aka Valdok) is an seasoned core blockchain developer, experienced in cryptography, blockchain architectures, low-level programming, and also computer graphics and embedded development.

Vlad started his career in the nineties, developing CAD algorithms. He later worked on various projects including high-performance TCP/IP and multicast software at ooVoo, automated flying systems and image processing at VisionMap, kernel-mode filter drivers at MusicLab and VOIP-specific algorithms at Viber.

In 2018, Vlad joined Beam - a Layer-1 privacy coin project, serving as lead developer and system architect. At Beam, Vlad developed sophisticated cryptographic protocols like Shcnorr’s signatures, Bulletproofs, and Groth’s one-out-of-many proofs. He also spearheaded Beam’s implementation of the Lelantus - an advanced ZK-based privacy protocol. His GitHub profile can be seen here.

Vlad’s favorite programming language is C++, but same as a true Samurai who can wield any weapon, Vlad can wield any programming language or environment.

As a high-school student, Vlad participated and won prizes in several mathematical and physical olympiads. In 1996, he was also a member of Israel’s national team on the International Physics Olympiad in Norway.

Vlad holds a B.Sc. in Physics and also did extensive not-for-degree studies of Computer Science in Tel Aviv University.

We are sure that Vlad will give a huge boost to the team and will become a driving force in executing the Secret Network roadmap.


Welcome Vlad, looking forward to working with you!
