About

Our Story

Conflux Network originated from the research lab of Turing Award recipient Dr. Andrew Yao at Tsinghua University.

This progressive research provides a solution to the ‘blockchain trilemma’ problem with a novel Tree-Graph consensus mechanism that optimizes security, scalability and decentralization.

In 2018, the Conflux Foundation was formed and a regulatory compliant fundraise was completed to build an open infrastructure based on this breakthrough consensus mechanism. Soon after, Conflux established itself as the only state endorsed public, permissionless blockchain in China.

As respected advocates of public blockchain infrastructure in China, Conflux is advancing the education and research in blockchain development. In 2020, Conflux established the Tree-Graph Research Institute in partnership with the government of Shanghai and the Key Laboratory of Blockchain Infrastructure & Applications with the government of Hunan.

Conflux has also expanded its global operations and community with a diverse distributed team of more than 50 members across over four continents, including offices in Toronto, Canada and Lagos, Nigeria.

Our Story

Team

The core leadership of Conflux Network is comprised of prominent researchers, distinguished scientists and business leaders with backgrounds from some of the top universities in the world, including the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), Carnegie Mellon University, Tsinghua University and the University of Toronto.

Our collective experience ranges across the fields of distributed systems, computer science, cybersecurity, cryptography, game theory, economics, finance and more.

Initiated by our Founder Fan Long and supported by the Shanghai Municipal Goverment, the Tree-Graph Blockchain Research Institute was founded for the research of the underlying infrastructure of Conflux public blockchain system. Andrew Chi-chih Yao, world-renowned computer scientist and the only Chinese Turing Award winner, serves as Chief Scientist at the Institute.
