Foresight Institute is a non-profit organization that was founded in 1986 on a vision of coming revolutions in technology that will bring extraordinary opportunities, as well as unprecedented challenges: “If we push in the right directions — learning, teaching, arguing, shifting directions, and pushing further — then we may yet steer the technology race toward a future with room enough for our dreams.” —K. Eric Drexler, Engines of Creation

2021 Foresight Fellow in Decentralized Market Design

Jazear is a computer scientist (BS Computer Science and Economics from Yale) with a decade of leadership and engineering experience working within the technology and financial services industry.

Today Jazear focuses mainly on blockchain technology. Blockchain became Jazear’s paradise when he was able to combine his skill set in engineering and economics to develop novel cryptoeconomic models and trading strategies. Jazear has developed blockchain software for various notable cryptocurrency projects including Cosmos and Thorchain before starting Sifchain.

Sifchain’s goal is for new blockchains to consider cross-chain integration as essential as a wallet or block explorer. Liquidity from all cryptocurrencies can then be accessed on-chain, allowing the coordinated deployment of capital from all cryptocurrencies by DAOs (Decentralized Autonomous Organizations).

Have you checked out the Existential Hope-website yet?

The goal of the Existential Hope project is to create a map of possible futures we wish we could send back in time to our younger selves.
Many young adults who will soon shape our future are plagued by information overload, disillusionment, or disinterest. They are aware of a multitude of systems that should be torn down but have very few positive comprehensive visions to work towards.
We’re creating a living onboarding document for the next generation to get every 20 year- old to have the common map of what’s at stake for civilization, wrapped in a shared experience that allows them to swap their existential angst for existential hope.
