Peter Todd is a full-time Bitcoin and decentralised consensus consultant known for his work for a variety of “Bitcoin 2.0” projects such as Mastercoin, Counterparty, Viacoin, coloured coins, while also contributing to the Bitcoin Core development. He’s also known as an outspoken advocate of decentralisation, and anonymity, including acting as DarkWallet’s Chief Scientist, advising them on their privacy technologies and strategy. Peter brings to Bitcoin an equally diverse background: a fine arts degree, physics and computer science, and six years experience as an analog electronics designer.
