Meet the people behind OneLedger

Every start-up just like every company began with a flick of a switch idea. The idea then quickly grows from just a small flame to a raging unstoppable fire with a burning need to exist.

To live, however, the idea requires the unfettered buy-in of those willing to commit more than their words. It demands people believe so much in the idea that they would be willing to leave their sometimes secured jobs and careers, to embark on an unknown journey. These people take this risk because they know that regardless of any bumps encountered, success is most certainly within reach.

This level of commitment is how teams are built, successful start-ups are created, and companies are made.

For David Cao, that light bulb moment gave birth to OneLedger. A universal blockchain protocol enabling cross-ledger access through business modularization. In other words, a blockchain of blockchains facilitated through a user-intuitive API that enables the cross-communication of on-chain and off-chain ledgers of blockchain and non-blockchain businesses.

Today, OneLedger is rapidly gaining recognition in the blockchain space….

However, the people who before anyone else understood David Cao’s vision; the people who, for some, left perfectly stable careers to work the long hours of a start-up life; those who tirelessly strived to make that idea a reality, are the team of OneLedger.

This is a group of people as talented as diverse in background, experience, skillset and technical expertise, with understanding & experience in Blockchain.
