Richard Horrocks is a freelance Ethereum and full-stack developer based in the UK, and holds a BA and MSc in natural sciences from the University of Cambridge. He worked for many years as a technical lead for Cisco Systems, where he worked on the operating systems of carrier-grade routing hardware, before leaving the world of IT to work as an English teacher. The advent of cryptocurrency piqued his interest sufficiently to lead him back to IT, and, since 2015, he has been working with Ethereum and other cryptocurrencies. His specialist interests are cryptoeconomics and incentive layers, with a particular focus on mechanism design and token engineering. When not in front of a computer, he enjoys yoga and falling off motorbikes.
