The founding team initially got into blockchain as a result of one of the founders, Augusto Teixeira, being academic co-author with Serguei Popov, the founder of IOTA.
Serguei became one of Cartesi’s earliest investors and advisors. Augusto had the original idea of creating a trustless AI marketplace for data scientists.
The Cartesi team realized they were tapping into a broader scope and the project evolved into developing a versatile layer-2 Linux infrastructure to overcome the problems of scalability, of computation, and infrastructure for blockchain applications.
