Cypher Livestream After Successful Funding Round

Cypher Protocol will be joining the DeFi Direct YouTube channel for a live stream on Nov. 30th at 17:00 UTC. Your regular DeFi Direct host, Greg, Goon Trades, will put his best technical knowledge to the test when he has over Barret, a data scientist and one of the core contributors at Cypher.

Cypher recently raised $2.1 million for its future while attracting the attention of major VC firms like Sino Global. There is a ton of hype for the project following the success of the funding round. The team at DeFi Direct is excited to bring on Barret from Cypher to give us more insight into the project.

Who is Barret

Barrett, a core contributor at Cypher, has worked as a lead data scientist and engineer at a number of startups. Throughout his career, he has built recommendation engines for identifying investments, investors, and LPs in private capital markets; designed and led a multi-level behavior analysis project; and constructed models to forecast sea ice movement in Antarctica. As a core contributor at Cypher, he leverages his technical background in quantitative finance, data science, and engineering to lead the protocol’s initiative to build expiratory futures on Solana.


What is Cypher Protocol

Cypher is an expiratory futures protocol built on Solana. Participants will be able to mint and trade products on any community-approved market while participating in community governance that facilitates robust and safe interactions. Initial markets will be focused on pre-public opportunities that many traders have historically been excluded from, and upcoming products will make it possible to access price exposure to nearly any underlying data point that can be brought on chain. The protocol will support portfolio margin, lending and borrowing, and approachable UI and UX design. Backed by top investors in the web3 sphere – including Sino Global Capital, SkyVision Capital, and Blockwall Capital – Cypher is set to upend how blockchain-based trading works today.
