Full Stack Developer

Yushi is a highly skilled full stack programmer. He is passionate about building user-friendly, reliable and scalable dApps. His hero is Aaron Schwartz.

In his spare time he's most likely to be found swimming, cooking up a masterful meal or engrossed in Star Trek Discovery. Hailing from China, Yushi is currently the most eastern member of the Kleros team (depending where on Earth you start of course!).

Apologies to Yushi, I had to insert this Star Trek meme.

Matheus Alencar

Full Stack Developer

Curious since the early age of 13, Matheus spent most of his time studying 3D art, politics, economics, and most of all, programming.

"Programming felt like a sword that would allow me to optimize so many services in my region that felt expensive and cumbersome, ideas like building an Uber for medical services would come and go", says Matheus. "However there was one matter that would always get in the way and where I could not see a solution in programming only: governance. Governance seemed to always be something people had to work around due to its high costs associated, whether it was fraudulent voting systems, useless laws or plain old nepotism".

Some of Mateus' game art. 

"Then came Ethereum, a Cambrian explosion of possibilities for building systems that make authority and coercion-based solutions obsolete. Opt-in, private law enforcement and dispute resolution are now possible and provide fertile ground for entrepreneurs. An ocean to be explored for those that were born too late to find new continents and too early to explore the stars, but just in time to see the dawn of a society based on voluntary relationships".

This led Matheus to work on blockchain empowered voting systems and research scalability solutions. At Kleros, he has the opportunity to more effectively contribute to fill the ever growing need for a fast, affordable and just dispute resolution layer.

Damjan, our resident writer and social media manager hails from Belgrade, Serbia.
